Dog Training

Blessed Oasis Pet Resort is proud to offer on site dog training group classes!  The curriculum, taught by dog trainer Jutta (pronounced “you-ta“) King, includes basic commands, tricks, socialization, owner training, signals and light agility.  Classes are divided into “Beginner” and “Advanced” and have a duration of six weeks each.  Classes are $120 for the entire course per dog with a minimum of $60 due up front to reserve a slot.  Any remaining balance must be paid before the first class begins.

About Jutta: Mrs. King is from ABC (Animal Behavior College) and has been a mentor/trainer with them for 8 years. She spent 5 years instructing at FTCC in dog training and behavior and is a member of the NADOI (National Association of Dog Obedience Instructors).  She also volunteered for the “New Leash on Life” program teaching inmates at the Bladen Correctional Facility positive training methods.  Her speciality are dogs categorized as fearful or “aggressive.”

In her own words:

“Since I was a little girl I have had a love for all types of animals but my real passion has and continues to be canines.  With this passion I chose over 20 years ago to devote my time to studying dog training and behavior.  My was and continues to be helping owners to communicate effectively with their dogs and prevent any unnecessary rehoming due to “behavioral issues”.

During my studies I have familiarized myself with the techniques of Dr. Ian Dunbar, Gary Wilkes, Karen Pryor, Jean Donaldson and many others, even attending many of their seminars.  I am certified with the NADOI and with ABC as a mentor trainer.

I look forward to helping you find the potential that your pup already has and contributing to the growth and development of a deeper relationship with them.”
