Puppy Class (12 weeks-6 months): Puppy classes will teach basic obedience skills such as sitting, lying down, staying in place, coming when called, and walking on a leash without pulling. We will also show you how to curb common puppy issues including jumping and mouthing.

Therapy Dog Preparation (all ages): Therapy Dogs International is an organization that certifies dog and handler teams to visit hospitals, assisted living facilities, other institutions and wherever therapy dogs are needed. Dogs must be at least 12 months to be eligible for testing, but it is never too early to begin preparing for the required exercises. Our preparation class will walk participants through the testing requirements and provide practical instruction on training a therapy dog. This class also helps prepare for the AKC’s Canine Good Citizen test.
2nd and 4th Saturday each month 2:00-3:00
$25 each Class
Urban Agility (all ages): Urban agility is our adaptation of a traditional agility class, integrating obstacles, and treadmill training into a more compact space. Obstacle and treadmill training offer physical and mental challenges for any age or breed and help foster trust, confidence and teamwork between you and your dog. This class is open in format and no prior agility training is required. Urban agility is intended for recreation rather than competition, however attendees will learn the foundation skills for the sport.

Take a Tour...A Day at the Dog Stop
Why the Tails Wag
Why the Tails Wag
“One question…”Wanna go play with your friiieeeendsss?”… and Gus Gus and Penny go from a quiet morning to a quick-footed, snorting pig and an insane, bouncing kangaroo both looking to leave as fast as possible…. So they can play with their friends. The Dog Stop Strip District is amazing in every way. The staff is top notch, they have a great selection of treats, food, and high-quality toys, and best of all… the dogs a tired at the end of the day (if we are lucky, they are so tired that the puppy coma continues the next day as well).”

“We love The Dog Stop! Remi runs straight to the gate as soon as we walk in and wags her tail and paws at the gate. I also love that I can watch her on camera throughout the day. It’s nice being able to check in. Then at the end of the day, she immediately passes out in the car after we pick her up. It’s amazing! We take her once a week now but might be upping that to two cause she loves it so much.”

“We have been taking our Doberman, Coco, to the Dog Stop since they opened in the Strip District. We have been totally satisfied with our experience. The staff is excellent and they do a great job handling our “energetic” girl. We have boarded her many times, and we are always happy to know she is in great hands when we are away. We have also recently started taking advantage of the training services. We think Coco has really enjoyed and benefited from the training/treadmill/agility she has completed.”
