Training Classes Offered

Puppy Socialization class:

For dogs 10 weeks to 6 months. Puppy class is all about getting your dog socialized with dogs, people, and environments. Establishing a good relationship with your dog is the foundation for everything else you will be doing with your pet in the future. Your dog will learn to have fun, enjoy coming to you, and learn how to behave for examinations and grooming. Our goal is to create a well-behaved puppy.

We talk about potty training, puppy play biting, how to create engagement with our puppies to build a long-lasting and positive relationship and hold open Q&A sessions for all your needs.

Novice Obedience Class:

For dogs 6 months and older. We will go over the basic commands of Sit(Stay), Down(Stay), Stand, Watch and Come. In addition, we will go over some basic leash manners and how to curb some annoying behaviors such as pulling, barking, and jumping. Not only will your dog get a physical workout, but also a mental one.

Advanced Obedience:

For dogs 6 months and older. Ideally, you have already completed the Novice Obedience Class. We will learn about our dogs’ body awareness, work on sustained eye contact, and muscle memory. All these steps help us create better engagement with our dogs and learn to be a better team. This class will prepare you to get started in competitive obedience.

Canine Good Citizen Class

Canine Good Citizen is a 10-skill test that teaches good manners to dogs and responsible dog ownership to their owners.

We will talk and learn about what it takes to become a certified AKC Canine Good Citizen. After establishing all rules and requirements and practicing them, we will set you and your dog up for success. We will hold the CGC test in week 4.

Trick Dog Class:

This is another AKC certification opportunity. We will work on performing 10 tricks from the AKC Trick Dog Novice title and hopefully earn yourself a new AKC title to add to your collection. This is a fun class where you and your dog can learn to rely on each other and have even more fun working as a team. We will conduct the test in week 4.

Agility Class:

This is an open class where all are welcome to come and enjoy a fun time with your dog. This is a perfect class to help your pet build confidence while building a stronger bond with you.  No experience needed!! Agility meets once weekly, on Wednesday from 6:30-7:30 pm.
