Private Lessons

Private lessons are a great way to help you and your dog with specific cues and behaviors. This gives you valuable one-on-one time with the trainer working on a specific training plan for your dog. This option is perfect for owners who need flexibility when scheduling sessions. 

As well as teaching basic through advanced obedience, we can help with issues such as separation anxiety, resource guarding, reactivity, aggression, and fear based behavior.

Puppy Class

Puppy class is the most important class you will ever take and one of the best decisions you will make for your puppy! This class will focus on socialization, which is crucial for puppies under 4 months of age. You will learn how to perform basic husbandry skills with your puppy, as well as basic obedience cues. This class will also give your puppy the opportunity to socialize with other puppies close in age. Eligible puppies can take the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Test at the end of this class!

Puppies must be 16 weeks and under to join this class.

The first week of this class is an orientation WITHOUT your puppy. Puppies MUST have at least one set of vaccines given 10 days prior to the start of class.

Concerned about bringing your puppy out before vaccines are finished? Please read the Puppy Socialization Position Statement from the American Society of Animal Behavior.

The Basics

Learn how to develop a clear form of communication with your dog. In this class we will work on your dog focusing on you in public, as well as basic cues such as sit, down, stay, walking on a loose leash, and recall. Being in a group also allows us to help your dog learn to perform in front of other dogs and people.

The first week of this class is an orientation and we ask that you DO NOT bring your dogs.
