Does anyone have suggestions for reasonably priced puppy obediance classes in the Pittsboro/Cary/Chapel Hill areas? Also suggestions on what age a puppy should start a structured obediance class? I keep seeing 6 months bit that seems old to start.

Thanks!

I'm using the don sullivan system now.   I started at 9 weeks.  I have "down" and "stay" down pretty good with my 11 week old pup.    House breaking isn't as far along as I would like, but other than that I like this training method.         

Any obedience class you take will be training you, not the puppy, unless you can afffoed to send it away to be trained for you.   They will train you to train your puppy.

Maybe with an obedience class house breaking would go better.

naaa.   I'm on my 3rd border collie.   The first two were off lease trained with distractions.   This one will be too.   A 45 minute class once a week for 6 weeks is real good for training a new dog owner though.  Train the owner, it works.   It's the same thing that the Don Sullivan discs do though.

I am currently taking a class at All Dogs Allowed in Cary.  Karen is a very gentle trainer and reasonably priced.

CCCC, Central Carolina Community College, has puppy classes right here in Pittsboro, and also Sanford.   I get their catalog in the mail... it is not addressed to me specifically, so it goes to everyone in Chatham.  Registration started on Aug. 7, but I'm sure there are still places, since there are number of sections.  Cost is $66.25.  The earliest one listed starts on Aug 30, others later and the course consists of 10.5 hours total.   The classes are listed on page 37 in the catalog.  Phone number to register is 919-545-8044.
