This spring, the town of Frisco is hosting two dog skill and obedience classes in partnership with certified professional dog trainer Louisa Morrissey, owner of High Country Dogs. CORE Puppy Class and Obedience for Life and Sports are both currently open for registration.

“It is so advantageous to start off your puppy’s life with you by going to a puppy training class, and my Obedience for Life class just continues that learning for older dogs and their companions,” Morrissey said. “These classes are all offered with an emphasis on positive training, and I urge human companions to bring a good sense of humor and abundant patience.”

Online registration for both classes is available at http://www.friscorecreation.com. All dogs must have proof of vaccination or titer testing, be in good health and be able to peacefully coexist with other dogs and humans in a group class setting.

About the courses

The CORE part of the title CORE Puppy Class stands for confidence, obedience, recall and etiquette/manners. During this indoor class, participants will focus on continued socialization of their puppies, as well as positive training techniques, while helping puppies build their confidence and addressing puppy issues such as biting, pulling and chewing. The class is open to puppies from 5 months to 8 months old.

The CORE series starts with an orientation without dogs on Tusday, April 7, from 6 to 7 p.m., followed by classes from 5:45 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesdays April 14, 21 and 28 and May 5. All classes take place in the Old Community Center Building, located at 110 Third Ave. in Frisco, and the cost is $75 for all five classes.

Obedience for Life and Sports is not just a basic obedience class. The class will cover sit, down, stay and all of the basics, but this curriculum will also teach dogs to give their human companions their attention, even with distractions, practice self-control and walk on a loose lead. All training is done using humane, effective positive reinforcement techniques. This class is a foundation for dog sports or simply living life with a canine companion. Participants can take the Canine Good Citizen evaluation at the end of the class series.

The obedience series starts with an orientation without dogs on Tuesday, April 7, from 6 to 7 p.m., followed by classes from 7 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays 14, 21 and 28 and May 5, 12 and 19. All classes take place in the Old Community Center Building, 110 Third Ave. in Frisco; the cost is $125 for all seven classes.
