CHANDREA FARMS meets a variety of training needs in the Pend Oreille County Washington and Bonner County Idaho area.
Classes and private lessons are tailored to meet a variety of needs from people who have never trained a dog and want a wonderful companion - through competition levels of obedience, agility and conformation.
The basis for everything we do is a POSITIVE and PRACTICAL approach to learning with the goal of enhancing the relationships of Pets & People too.
**We make every effort to stay current with the latest positive training methods. Karen Pryor/Clicker Expo, Susan Garrett and Leslie McDevitt are a few of my favorite positive trainers to learn from and model their approach.
Positive reinforcement methods are inspiring and possible for everyone - and they WORK!
Come join us for training fun and success!
**NOTE 4/15 - At this time I AM scheduling private lessons.
Classes will be scheduled later in the year due to family circumstances.
Boarding, Private training and Puppies are all fully operational and greatly ENJOYED!

CANINE GOOD CITIZEN - This class is based on the 10 items required for an AKC Canine Good Citizen Title. Taking the test is NOT a requirement of the class – but is offered for those who wish. This excellent guideline covers useful skills that every family dog should know. AKC issues a title certificate for ALL dogs who pass the CGC test - regardless of pedigree. This accomplishment is a common precursor to Therapy Dog certification and all other training opportunities. The 10 skills include: Accepting a friendly stranger, sitting politely for petting, appearance & grooming, walking on a loose leash, walking through a crowd, sit & down with brief stay in place, coming when called, reaction to another dog, reaction to distractions and a supervised separation.

AGILITY- Build your dog’s confidence on safe equipment, get a little exercise and help reinforce obedience skills. Jumping, running, climbing and tunneling can be its own reward!
