A healthy respect FOR you and other individuals BY your dog, and a healthy respect BY you towards your dog, its intelligence, and its desire to please you….that is the beginning of a great long term relationship. Pender recognized this years ago and has been providing obedience classes on a regular basis since 1991.

We believe that all young dogs need (as a minimum education) PUPPY KINDERGARTEN. They often arrive for their first class a little on the “wild” side, but most leave at the end of the sessions quite “civilized.” A true win/win.

Our class levels are:

  • Puppy kindergarten
  • Basic Obedience
  • Intermediate Obedience
  • Advanced Obedience
  • Canine Good Citizen

Private lessons are also available. Click here for a schedule of all of our classes.
