Family Dog Essentials:


Learn the essential tools to turn your dog into a wonderful family dog! This class is for dogs aged six-months and older. The class will focus on the following skills: sit, eye contact, come, down, leave it, drop it, and loose leash walking. All dogs will remain on leash during the length of the class.



Puppy Class:


That cute little puppy got you chasing your tail? We’ll help you survive (and enjoy) puppyhood by creating a foundation for your pup to become the well-behaved adult companion you look forward to having. Using evidence-based training, we will focus on basic manners, socialization and solutions for common puppy antics.




Puppy Social Hour:


“The primary and most important time for puppy socialization is the first three months of life” – American Veterinary Society Position Statement on Puppy Socialization.

While seeing a group of clumsy puppies falling all over each other might be the cutest sight known to mankind, it also serves an important purpose; socialization, which is critical to a puppy’s overall wellbeing. Under the guide of nationally certified professional dog trainers, this hour of structured puppy-play allows your new family member to form positive associations to sights, sounds and objects they may encounter in everyday life. Each week we will explore a new theme to make sure your puppy is well-rounded and ready to face the world! Check our Facebook page to find out this week’s theme!
