OHS Group Obedience Classes

All OHS group workshops are suitable for friendly dogs that are comfortable working around other dogs in a group environment.

Beginner Adult/Puppy Obedience: These classes are for participants who are looking for basic training with canine manners and commands. The classes run consecutively for eight weeks, once per week.  We believe that training your dog should be fun for you, for your family, and for your dog. Our Beginner Puppy Obedience (four to 11 months), Beginner Adult Obedience (11 months +) and Beginner Adult/Puppy Combined Obedience, classes are not intended to train your dog to compete in any level of obedience competition, but rather to teach the basics of good canine citizenship. All obedience classes are taught with positive reinforcement training.

Cost: $115.00 for dogs adopted from the OHS or $140.00 for dogs not adopted from the OHS.

Note: The first class of each beginner obedience session is for human participants only. This is an instructional class – please leave your furry friends at home.

Space is limited, so register today! For more information about any of the classes available, please email programs@ottawahumane.ca or call (613) 725-3166 ext. 298 today.

Level 2 Advanced Obedience: This class is for dogs and handlers who have completed a beginner level of obedience training and would like to continue to improve their skills and learn some new ones. Heeling, loose leash walking, stay and recall behaviours will be strengthened and self-control when approached and handled by people and when greeting other dogs will be emphasized. The classes run consecutively for eight weeks, once per week. The course is geared towards preparing the participants to take the Canadian Canine Good Citizen Test™*.

Cost: $115.00 for dogs adopted from the OHS or $140.00 for dogs not adopted from the OHS.

*The CCGC™ Certification Program is a ten-step test that assesses a dog’s behaviour in simulated everyday situations to ensure that the dog is a respected member of the community because it is trained and conditioned to act mannerly in the home, public places and the presence of other dogs. The test will be offered separately after the completion of the course for those who wish to have their dogs certified.

Cost: $115.00 for dogs adopted from the OHS or $140.00 for dogs not adopted from the OHS.
