Group Classes

Group Training classes cover the basic commands: touch, look, sit, down, stay, begging, come, leash and socialization.

Classes also cover problem behaviors: jumping, potty training, and nipping.  Individual questions and concerns are addressed.

It is not easy living with a human.  We have expectations for our dog's behavior and the list is long.  This is a big job for a dog who wants nothing more than to please you.  Give yourself and your dog the best chance to be successful.  Our training classes build the foundation of a healthy relationship with your dog.  Enjoy some special moments with your dog.  They will appreciate the help and will know you are doing your part too.  Building a loving bond with your dog is one of the most precious experiences in life.  

An Evaluation gives our trainer an opportunity to meet with your and your dog to discuss the details of your training goals.  We evaluate how your dog responds to commands; if they are food driven, if they are social, if they are shy, for example.  A training plan will be finalized and scheduled.
