How Our Program Works

The Adult Dog School at BlueDog Academy is designed to create the foundation of a lifetime of learning with our membership style program. Take unlimited classes, graduate to each level as your dog progresses, enjoy many Extracurricular Activities including our popular “Around the Town Class,” and finish off with your pup earning his AKC Canine Good Citizen Certificate!

Watch your dog reach all of your training goals!

Our classes are positive based and family friendly. Our goal with BlueDog Academy’s Adult Dog School is to give you a foundation of understanding dog behavior and learning so that you can continue to enhance your dog’s education throughout his lifetime!

In addition to a foundation of general good manners and socialization, your dog will learn:

Elementary School

  • Sit
  • Down
  • Name Response
  • Eye Contact
  • Heel Position
  • Attention Games

Middle School

  • Recall
  • Touch
  • Loose Leash Walking
  • Stay
  • Wait
  • Stand

High School

  • Settle
  • Leave It
  • Drop It
  • Friendly Greetings
  • Loose Leash Walking

College

  • Canine Good Citizens Exam Preparation

All students begin at Elementary School, regardless of your dog’s prior training. Rest assured that depending on your dog’s training level, you may only need to take one class in Elementary School before moving up to Middle School!

But by starting him in the first class, we are ensuring that your dog has the foundation required to move forward, and that you both understand BlueDog’s training philosophies & techniques.
