Class Readiness Evaluation
In this free 30 minute group session, we’ll conduct a brief evaluation which will help determine the best starting point for your dog. We’ll also give you a few tips to get you started with your training and ready to have a great first class!
Ready for your dog to listen to you and have behavior you’re proud of? Want to have fun while you train? Then this 6 week class is for you! This class is designed for dogs and puppies 14 weeks and older. We’ll train the following core behaviors: Sit, Down, Place, Come, Walk on a Loose Leash, and Leave It.
This class picks up right where your Manners 1 class left off. Dogs learn to behave nicely and perform the trained behaviors EVEN around distractions. Good social behavior is emphasized. This class is essential for developing a well behaved companion!
In this dynamic class, we’ll take your training to the next level. This class is an ideal stepping stone to more advanced work and building a high degree of impulse control. You’ll refine your shaping skills as you develop your training abilities right along with your dog.
These single session classes are the ideal training and practice session for the dog that has trouble focusing when new dogs are around. A great option for tuning up in between group sessions.
