People with Special Needs

Blue Ribbon Dog Training Academy is sensitive to the needs of dog owners who lack the strength and co-ordination of an average adult. Young people, Senior Citizens and People with Disabilities are welcome in group lessons and private instruction.pupgift


Are you giving your kids a puppy as a present? Why not include an obedience class! We specialize in dog training for kids! We encourage family participation when training a puppy. Kids 8 and older can help train! Younger children may not have the attention, comprehension skills, or hand/eye coordination to do the actual training. It depends on the individual child and puppy.

Group/Class Rates

  • $110 FOR 6 WEEKS. Group classes meet once a week for 6 weeks. Each session is approximately 70 minutes.

Graduates Receive (Last class) - The last class generally consists of review of things taught and games testing these skills.

  • Dogs attending at least 4 of the 6 scheduled classes, receive a certificate at the last class.
  • Dogs attending all 6 classes of the 6 scheduled classes, are acknowledged as PERFECT ATTENDANCE.
  • Owners attending the last night of class, receive a $10 certificate towards a future class.

Items to bring to class

  • Treats for rewarding your dog. Please make sure they are small. Hotdogs cut into dime size pieces work well, as does thawed Biljac frozen dog food. If you choose to use dog biscuits, make sure they can be broken into small pieces. A favorite toy can substitute.
  • A 6' leash. Nylon or leather works well (do not use a chain leash or "flexie lead").
  • A training collar. Chain with ring on either end. I will show you how to put it on your dog properly.
  • A bowl and water for your dog.
