Enrichment Training

Fun for everyone

The Obedient Dog enrichment dog training classes help keep your dog busy and active, but most of all, they’re a lot of fun. Great for older dogs or dogs that need more – or perhaps better – hobbies. We offer Dog Tricks, Urban Herding, Scent Class, Pup-lates and more.

So your dog already knows how to sit and stay. There’s still so much more to learn! Our innovative dog training classes are conducted with games and fun, interactive activities you can continue to play with your dog at home. Our list of offerings continues to develop and grow. 


Tricks 1:  Learning Dog Tricks

Every dog needs a few tricks, and some dogs need even more! We’ll cover classic dog tricks like roll over, play dead, and sit up, as well as more advanced behaviors. This is a great class for teaching focus around other dogs.

Prerequisites:  Obedience 1 or consent of instructor. For dogs six months and up.


Tricks 2:  Advanced Dog Tricks

In this six-week workshop we emphasize sequencing as you learn how to string together the behaviors learned in Tricks 1 to really impress your friends. A great class for the busy dog or the future therapy dog. Your dog will even learn how to skateboard, put away his toys, play basketball and more!

Prerequisites:  Tricks 1 or consent of instructor. For dogs nine months and up.


Urban Herding

Urban Herding (also known as Treibball) is herding without the sheep. Instead, dogs herd large exercise balls into a goal, using their noses to push the balls in the right direction. Any dog can do it, and it’s tons of fun! This six-week workshop also develops an incredible bond between you and your dog as he masters off-leash obedience and self-control. You’ll learn all the basics of urban herding including distance control commands to get you started in this fabulous new dog sport. Intrigued?

Prerequisites:  Obedience 1 or consent of instructor. For dogs nine months and up.
