Obedience Classes

The Obedience classes offered by VVDOC are listed below. Additional classes may be offered, based on student interest and instructor availability. Visit our Class Schedule page for a list of classes in the upcoming session.

Our classes are six weeks long, and are taught by our volunteer Club members who own and train their own dogs. We use buckle or slip collars. We do not use any harsh training methods. We allow food, toys, or whatever it takes to motivate your dog.


Puppy Class

For puppies 4 to 9 months, our Puppy class gets the little ones socialized and introduced to the basic skills of how to walk nicely on a lead, come when called, sit, and lie down.


Basic Manners Class

Designed for dogs over the age of 9 months, in this class dogs learn what every good dog needs to know at home or in public, and how to be a good representative for your family.
