Training – Group Classes

This 5-week class is for puppies 10 weeks to 5 months old. This class encourages and reinforces good behavior by working on basic manners as well as socialization. Handling skills, potty training, crate training, and basic manners are among the topics covered.
Our adult class is for dogs 5 months and older. This 5-week class gives pets a solid foundation of basic behaviors. Untrained adolescent and adult dogs can become easily distracted by their environment, which is why this class focuses on important impulse-control exercises.
This 4-week class is sure to be a good time for you and your pup! We cover classic tricks like roll over and play dead as well as more advanced behaviors. A foundation of basic cues is preferred and dogs must be 4 months old to participate.
This class is for graduates of our Puppy Kindergarten or Adult Foundation classes. During this 5-week class, we will add distractions, distance, and duration to your dog’s basic cues and will also cover new cues like place, heel, and finish!
Our hour long workshops are designed to focus on specific behaviors that owners commonly have trouble with like leash walking and potty training. We also have Agility FUNdamentals and much more to choose from!
