  • Puppy Class

    Puppy Class is an open enrollment class. It is six separate modules that you can start on any given Tuesday night at 6pm. We help on puppy things such as potty training, mouthing, jumping, crate training, teaching relaxation as well as cover sit, down, mat, come and loose leash walking.  In addition we set up exposure to different surfaces, sounds and experiences to help build your puppies confidence and engagement with you during this critical period of learning. 

    Class is open to puppies ages 8 to 20 weeks.  Puppies must have at least one distemper/parvo vaccination and a negative fecal test within the last 30 days.

    When you sign up for Puppy Class, you may attend classes up until your puppy turns 20 weeks old.  There are 6 modules.  Each week you attend, please sign up for class as we only allow 5 puppies in class per week at a time.  Even if you finish the 6 modules before your puppy turns 20 weeks, feel free to come back for more practice or perhaps show off your puppy's skills!

    Upon completing this course (attending all six modules) you are eligible to receive 10% off our Amazing Dog Private Lesson Program or 5% off of our Freedom Dog or Freedom Puppy Program board and train programs. To be eligible for discount you must sign up for your next program within 30 days of graduating puppy class.

    Cost: $125

  • Follow up Group Classes

    After our clients and their dogs have completed a training program, they can come to our follow up group classes: Use It or Lose It, and Play & Train. These classes let clients get continued support after their program, practice with distractions as well as meet other clients, their dogs and make new friends.

  • Use It or Lose is our on leash follow up class.  This is open to clients who have done training with us in private lessons or board and train.  We'll be practicing skills worked on training such as loose leash walking, sit, down, mat with more distractions, distance and duration.

    Please be sure to bring your dog 10-15 minutes early and on the training tool appropriate for your dogs training. This is a time for you to focus on building a relationship with your dog and both of your skills in a real world setting. Please only one dog per person.

    Class is Saturday at 9am.  Please sign up by clicking on the Sign Up button below. Looking forward to seeing you and your dog!
