Puppy Class

16 weeks old (& under): Your puppy must attend at least 6 sessions before being promoted to Level 1 or be over 20 weeks of age. You will learn about proper socialization, basic foundation skills (sit, down, come, loose leash walking, leave it, drop it, stay, and more!), how to implement structure, address problem behaviors (jumping, biting, chewing, housebreaking, etc) and learn about puppy grooming health & making vet visits easy. This class includes 15 minutes of off-leash play each week. If you attend all 6 sessions of Puppy Kindergarten we offer the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy test for a medal from the AKC. $90

Basic Obedience

20 weeks+: work on obedience & manners and applying them to real life. Learn to read body language, to understand Separation Anxiety, Resource Guarding, and other behavioral issues. We will cover sit, down, stay, recall, loose leash walking, drop it, leave it, etc. We will teach you how to introduce distance, distraction, and duration to the skills your dog learns to help solidify those cues.

*Our Basic Obedience is now offered in Skill Levels training. Please see the Levels Information page for details and for available days/times. All dogs will start in puppy or Level 1 & be promoted at their own pace.

All obedience classes are open enrollment-start as soon as you’re ready in any class that isn’t filled! (must preregister)


Impulse Control

5 months+: 6 sessions; Is your dog barky? Do they jump over everyone? Do they steal things? Maybe they are demanding? All of these issues are a result of poor impulse control, something dogs aren't naturally good at. Their frontal lobe is the least advanced part of their brain and one of the functions of the frontal lobe is impulse control. In this class, your dog will learn how to have better self-control & patience through the work we do. The more you practice working on impulse control the better your dog will be all the way around! $130

6 months+: 6 sessions; This class tests your dog’s obedience skills at a different location every week! Some in the city, some in the country.
