Dog Training Classes & Puppy Training Classes for manners in the real world

…and beyond!

Group dog training classes are great for:


Real life distractions

Since your dog will be around other dogs, your dog will learn when it’s time to play and when it’s time to listen. Dog Training classes are great for polishing you and your dog’s skills.


Social for you and the dog

The group dynamics allow us to celebrate successes with other dog owners. It’s also nice to hear other people’s experiences and motivate each other during class.


Solve problems

You learn how to address problems that other people have and if your dog develops that issue down the road, then you know how to address it.


Your dog works for you

With group dog training classes, you are the training your dog. Your dog will be able to complete cues for you right away and there is no transfer time after the trainer trained your dog for you.

Is your dog still pulling on the leash in some situations? Does your dog still really want to say hi to every dog and person in the neighborhood? Let’s really improve those leash walking skills. Give your dog the skills they need to walk next to you in stores and breweries so your dog can go everywhere you want to go with your dog. At the same time, we don’t always need our dogs walking right by our sides. We can give them the skills they need to walk on a loose leash on the beach or around the neighborhood so they can get the maximum amount of exercise.

Class topics include:

  • Building better focus
  • Walking on a loose leash
  • Walking by your side
  • Passing food distractions
  • Ignoring people and other dogs until you invite your dog to go say hi

Let’s take it to the next level and really teach your dog to pay attention to you and walk nicely on leash around other dogs and people!

Therapy Dog Training Class

  • Time: Noon to 1 pm
  • Dates: Thursdays starting August 5th
  • Includes: 4 weeks of class, small class size for optimal progress
  • Cost: $149

Therapy Dogs bring love and joy to patients in hospitals, hospice facilities and to children in need. To pass the Therapy dog test dogs must be able to walk nicely on a loose leash through a crowd of people, cooperate with their owner while passing food on the floor, among other skills.

To get started on this important work, join our Marvelous Manners class! If your dog has passed the CGC (Canine Good Citizen test), join us to start on the path to bringing happiness to people in need while teaching your dog the skills to be a well-behaved dog in public places.

She not only turned around our dog’s behavior- very positively commented on by neighbors – but taught us so much.
