UKC SPOT: This class is for dogs 6 months of age and older. Your dog will practice basic obedience skills such as walking on a loose leash, doorway manners, place, dealing with distractions, sit, down, stay, and come. The UKC (United Kennel Club) believes in “real dogs for real people” and has developed this program to help dogs become well-behaved canine companions that are readily accepted in their community. At the conclusion of this class, you and your dog will have the opportunity to take the UKC SPOT (Socialized Pet Obedience Test). Dogs who pass the 10 test stations are eligible to receive a UKC SPOT certificate. Dogs do not have to be purebred or UKC registered to earn the SPOT recognition. If you choose to register you dog with the UKC (we can guide you), your dog can obtain a UKC Title upon successful completion of the SPOT test.
