Obedience Training Classes

What Does Obedience Training Mean?

Advanced obedience training can turn potentially frightening situations into a controlled environment where your dog will be looking to you for instruction rather than resorting to potentially harmful instincts. This includes situations where your dog finds themselves off of their leash in an uncontrolled environment. Off leash training is included with our advanced obedience training class and it is the only way to get a consistent response from your companion when they are not under your direct control.

What Does Advanced Obedience Training Do for a Dog?

We offer advanced obedience training to ensure your companion will reach their full potential with commands beyond just sitting, laying down and shaking. We focus on making your four-legged companion a polite and well-behaved member of society when you are out in public along with instilling them with a calm and composed presence that will keep both you and your pet happier and safer.

What Do We Teach in Our Obedience Classes

We at Delta K9 Academy incorporate hand signal training into our advanced obedience training course. By providing hand signal commands to go along with verbal commands, our advanced obedience class can provide you with another means of commanding your dog in situations where they might not be able to hear a verbal command. Our advanced obedience training class also covers on-leash training as well, which will, among other things, stop your companion from yanking and pulling while they are on the leash.

K9 programs

If you work for a law enforcement agency and need to train a new batch of K9 officers then the K9 trainers at Delta K9 Academy are able to help. For years, law enforcement agencies throughout Los Angeles and the surrounding area have trusted Delta K9 Academy to provide them with loyal, reliable canine officers, and this is a service that we are incredibly proud to offer to the community.

What Are K9 Dogs Trained for?

We are able to train K9 officers to perform a wide range of vital roles, from using their extraordinary sense of smell to detect bombs or drugs to apprehending and neutralizing dangerous suspects.  For K9 officers that are charged with using their strength, speed, and athleticism to help keep officers safe in a dangerous situation, we employ cutting-edge advanced decoy training techniques that will teach a dog how to apply and relive bite pressure on command, how to deal with an armed assailant, how to read body language and detect threats, and much more.

training a dog for personal protection

Do you walk alone at night? Is the neighborhood you live in less than safe? If you are concerned about your personal safety for any reason, we can help you turn your dog into a loyal guard dog to protect you and your family. If you are looking for a class that will provide your dog with an important purpose they are sure to love as well as provide you and your family with a loyal, capable defender then enrolling your dog in our protection dog training class is certainly an ideal option to consider.

What Is Protection Training for Dogs

A common misconception is that only certain breeds such as German Shepherds or Pit Bulls can be a protection dog. In reality, though, we have seen many breeds succeed in this program. Another common misconception is that you need to have a dog who is aggressive and not socialized prior to the training. This also couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, socializing is a main focus in this class, as a good protection dog will need to know the difference between a threat and a non-threat and remain calm and composed when they are around non-threatening people.

What We Teach in Our Protection Classes

In addition to teaching your dog how to recognize a threatening situation, we can also teach them valuable skills such as

  • barking on command to ward off a threat
  • guarding a specific location or individual
  • attacking on command, and more!
