SouthPaw Dog Training Classes: Schedule and Prices

Our Basic Obedience Classes are comprehensive. We have served the Clear Lake, League City, Dickinson, Pearland, Friendswood and Galveston areas for many years. Our Basic Class is like no other program. We give you behavior modification and obedience as a package, along with a SouthPaw Training Book to back up everything you learn in each class.
 
Our program is designed to give the pet owner what they need most - the enjoyment of having a good social pet with manners. SouthPaw Training's 6-week program gives you the help, to learn how to guide your pet through the puppy stage and gives you the knowledge to control the behavior problems.
 
SouthPaw Training trainer, Barbara Day, is certified in 9 levels of canine training and behavior. We have taken the time and learned the correct methods, to train you and your dog. We have not just taken a few classes and trained a dog or two. Being a good trainer is not about how many titles you have, or how many dogs you have owned. It is about the knowledge that 35 years of owning, training, showing, and studying dogs, can give you.
 
We have the training, the knowledge and the experiences of training hundreds of dog - of all breeds, anything from a Poodle to a Korean Jindo Dog, for the show, competition or home obedience and including police K9s. We fix problems and guide you through your struggles of training.

This program teaches you how to work what you have learned in Basic, taking you through and preparing you for situations occurring with Off-Leash training. This is a very productive class for those who want to give their dog Off-Leash training and distraction proofing.

This is the most progressive program available, for accomplishing Off-leash training. We have the availability to give you a safe and extensive program with socialization and distraction training for Off-Leash work.  
 
We start at the Intermediate level, using a long line to work with distance and control in and indoor or outdoor environment. Progressing in the Advanced level to being Off-Leash, with the dog learning to have control and in the same turn getting some of the freedom that dog's love.  
 
If you have taken a Basic Obedience program with another facility and want to take your training further, give us a class and see how much further you can progress. Payment in Cash or check only.  
 
Give us a call and set up a time to come by and check it out. If success in accomplishing off-leash training, with any type of distraction, is what you are looking for - Call 409-316-1777 or email us southpawtraining@gmail.com

Rally Obedience (Ongoing class)
Every Tuesday, 6:30 PM
Starts January  9, 2018

$80 6-weeks/$15 weekly
Class Time: 2 hrs.
 
Rally is a competitive sport, working with obedience, but through motivation. A course is laid out, in a numbered sequence with signs. Each of the signs is performed in sequence and can be accomplished using verbal motivations. Rally classes will be set up to follow the AKC guidelines.
 
Each class will work on learning to read and understand how to perform each sign. Patterns will be set up to teach the method of working from one sign to another comfortably. We will be starting the new 2017 signs in June 2017, preparing for AKC showing of the new signs and new Intermediate and Masters Levels to be introduced.   
 
This is a fun sport and students find it very uplifting for dogs that find the conventional obedience competitions too controlled. Come check out the fun and join us in Rally.  
 
Our students have progressed faster and with higher scores, because of our ability to work on situations and problem-solving. Students usually qualify in 3-4 shows with 3 qualifing courses. Most scoring in the upper 90s. We have an amazing success rate in our scoring and qualifying with all our students.  
 
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM Rally Novice, Advanced and Excellent - Each week there are courses for any dogs in Novice/Intermediate/Advanced/Excellent and soon working on the Masters Level training. Payment in cash or check only.

Step It Up Obedience (Ongoing class)

Starts January 9,2018 

$60 monthly / $15 Weekly Class Time: 2 hrs.
Prerequisite - Basic obedience

Step It Up is a completely new concept, taking parts of Freestyle Dance maneuvers and working them into obedience applying them  to music.  
 
We started in 2009 adding music to Rally and making a Synchronized course and found that the dogs were having a wonderful time with the music. We have seen something like this in Hungary and are now working with the music.
 
Eventually, we hope to make this a competitive sport for all.  
 
 
Come join us or call to get more information 409-316-1777. Payment in cash or check only.
