Pre-School

Parents' Day Out


This fun training and socialization experience happens during the day. We'll tire out your puppy while you take a break!




Elementary School

Middle School


Calling all "tween" puppies! This class is similar to Elementary School, but is for puppies who are between 4 and 9 months old. Your tween will work on socialization, problem prevention, problem solving, and foundations for training using positive methods.





               Dog College              

Freshman


Get a feel for the basics! Dogs 4 months and older will learn impulse control (including eliminating jumping), settle, leave it, and attention. They'll also gain the valuable skill of focusing on you when other people and dogs are nearby.




Sophomore

Step things up a notch! Your dog will learn some new manners, like loose-leash walking, leave it (walking), touch, settle (with distractions), recall, and moving attention.




Junior

Building on what he or she has already learned, your junior dog will fine-tune their manners. In no time you and your dog will master the skills acquired in previous classes.




Senior

"wow, I wish my dog could do that!" Your dog will be the envy of the neighborhood. You'll play fun games that will challenge your dog and perfect their training so that they listen in all situations.

Reactive Dog


Are you afraid to take your dog out for a walk because he or she growls, lunges, or barks at every dog or person he/she sees? This class is really focused on both ends of the leash. Reactive Dog classes provide a safe environment for you and your dog to learn how to manage on leash reactivity. Your dog will learn exactly what is expected of them when they encounter something that normally causes them to react unfavorably.
