Obedience Training:
CGC and Beyond

Basic obedience training training starts with being able to recall your dog. This is the most important command you can teach your canine companion and can save his life. Shelzmide K9s starts with the recall and takes your dog as far as you’re willing to go. Through our programs your dog can learn to heel on and off a leash, sit, lie down, and stand for examination. Amaze your friends with hand signals from across the yard, or train your dog to obey in life saving situations.
