GROUP CLASSES

We keep our classes smaller (3-4 dogs) so you and your dog get more personal instruction. Our classes meet once a week and include a online course to keep you on track during the week.

All classes are run on a rolling schedule, meaning you can don't have to wait a month to join! Life happens, whether that be vacation, illness or a tough week at work, rolling schedule allows you to make up the class you missed at a later date (rules apply). You must register for class before, no drop ins.

Classes starting April 4

We help navigate playtime and breaks in a safe setting, creating socially confident puppies that are ready for new situations and meeting new people and dogs. This class includes the beginnings of recall, working on arousal levels and basic husbandry stills. We recommended coming to this class in addition to the Puppy Class, however they can not be taken on the same night to avoid over arousal and exhaustion.

Class activities include training calmness with exciting scenarios, working closely around other dogs and people, as well as working through problem adolescent behaviors.
