Fall Training Starts Mid-September!

Don’t let your canine companion miss out on the fun of going back to school – sign up for training at the Kennel Club of Fort Atkinson this fall!

The KCFA offers classes for a range of age- and skill-levels.  See our detailed descriptions to decide which training class is the best fit for you and your dog.

The fall session gets underway Monday, September 19, at 6:30 pm, with the first meeting of Puppy Kindergarten.  This six-week class focuses on socializing young puppies and builds a foundation for successful basic obedience training.

Older puppies and adult dogs of any age can benefit from KCFA’s Basic Skills/Everyday Manners class.  Students in this class will learn how to incorporate basic training into everyday life in a fun, positive way.  The first of eight weekly class meetings will begin Thursday, September 22, at 7:15 pm.

Continuing Basic is the next step in refining teamwork and skills.  This eight-week class begins Thursday, September 22, at 6:00 pm.

Dog-handler teams that have already mastered basic obedience exercises have the opportunity to learn and challenge themselves further.  Students in the Intermediate Skills class will strengthen the bond with their dogs and work on fine-tuning their skills.  Intermediate-level students just might discover an interest in competition along the way, too!  Intermediate Skills begins Monday, September 19, at 7:00 pm, and runs for eight weeks.

We are very excited to offer a special six-week workshop in Carting this session.  Space is very limited.  See the Registration page (scroll down on it) for details.

Class sizes are limited.  Preregister today to ensure a spot in the class of your choice!

Classes also include confidence-building exercises and an introduction to basic commands. Puppy “parents” will have the opportunity to learn during the class, too; a different discussion topic will be introduced each week, along with time for questions and answers.

Older puppies between 5 and 6 months may attend Puppy Kindergarten with instructor approval. Prospective students with older puppies should contact the KCFA at (920) 568-0364 and leave a message. A club member will follow up and help determine if Puppy Kindergarten is the right fit.
