BEGINNER NOVICE (BN) Obedience Class:

This is an optional titling class. You will need to learn, understand and be familiar with the exercises before you get to the trial. This is not the pre-novice class and it should not be assumed that all of the exercises are judged in the same manner. The premise is that all exercises are done on lead* and follow instructions placed in the ring by the judge. *The recall will be done off lead with the handler carrying the lead in either hand or placed around their neck. All other exercises will be done on lead. This will be a fun class for all beginner dogs and both beginner and advanced handlers.

Start date:  Thursday, Feb 2 - March 16, 2017 (No Class on March 2)
Class time:
 8:00 pm
Cost
: $60.00
Instructor(s): Carole Atkinson

Please contact Carole Atkinson at 618-355-0148 to sign up or for more information. Please fill out the Belle City Kennel Club Class registration form and either mail to Carole at the address on the form or bring completed form to the first class.

The prerequisite for this class would be a Novice Class. It is not necessary that the Novice Class be taken from Belle-City Kennel Club in order to participate. However, we will build upon the exercises learned. Beginner’s Obedience class will also qualify as a prerequisite.  Watch the website for the starting date for the next class.

Reminders

For ALL CLASSES, the dogs must have their standard immunizations in order to attend. If you have any questions, please call!! Dogs in season cannot attend the classes. You may attend without the dog. Refunds will be given for classes missed because of injury, illness or accident with a written note from your veterinarian.

There will be a minimum of 4 dogs in a class. Should a class not reach the minimum limit, it will be necessary to cancel the class or at the instructor’s discretion. If a class is canceled, all enrollment money will be refunded. We try to keep the number of participants in a class small so as to give everyone personal attention.

No harsh or abusive training will be allowed. We use toys, treats and praise in our training. No shock collars!

If you have any question as to which class you should enroll in, please contact the Obedience Director who will assist you in making a decision according to your interests.

Watch our website for date, time and cost of any class you are interested in.

Remember mixed breed dogs are now eligible to complete in AKC Obedience, Agility and Rally trials.

VERY IMPORTANT: To secure your place in a class, application and fees must be received prior to the beginning of the class. A minimum of 4 dogs must be signed up for any of the classes or class will be canceled and rescheduled at a later date.
