  • Puppy Class is a four week open enrollment class you can join any week. It is four separate modules and you can start on any given Tuesday night at 6pm. We help on puppy things such as potty training, mouthing, jumping, crate training 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.

    There are two sign up options for Puppy Class.  You can sign up for 4 consecutive classes that will go through the 4 modules.  You can also sign up for unlimited classes until your puppy turns 20 weeks old.  In order to graduate you must attend at least one night of the 4 modules.  However the advantage of the unlimited lessons is you can come back multiple times and each time your puppy will learn even more!

    Upon completing this course you are eligible to receive 10% off our Amazing Dog Private Lesson Program or 5% off of our Freedom Dog or  Total Dog Transformation 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:  4 consecutive classes - $100 or unlimited classes - $250

  • Our Do More with Your Dog is a unique group class. It's ongoing so you can join anytime.  When you sign up for the first time, you'll begin by working one on one with us for three private lessons to build a basic foundation with your dog. After building a basic foundation you'll join class. 

    Our Dog More with Your Dog class covers many topics that are both helpful and practical skills for you and your dog.  Because it's an ongoing class, we can cover a wide variety of training skills  and you're not under the normal pressures of a 6-8 week long class to accomplish training goals.  The table below gives examples of topics we cover.

  • 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 It

    Use It or Lose It will take place at our location.  We'll work on leash walking, sit, down, mat, come and more with distractions, distance and duration.  This class lets you polish you and your dog's skills.

  • Play and Train

    This program is a combination of our socialization class and obedience.  We'll be doing a combination of socialization, on leash and off leash work with the dogs such as recall from play. Dogs must have completed an ecollar off leash program and be preapproved.
