What Is Our Goal For This Class? 

This group class is designed to help you build a solid foundation when it comes to training your dog! We use positive, force-free methods to help you accomplish your goals and help you stay on track by staying realistic and setting achievable milestones. A lot of our dog training falls apart when we advance our dogs skills way too soon. Which leads to frustration and burnout with our dogs…allowing us to forget to enjoy life with our dogs.

Our group class provides a supportive and structured learning environment where both you and your furry friend can thrive. Through positive reinforcement techniques, we focus on teaching essential cues such as sit, stay, come, touch, place, and let’s go! We also bring focus into dog body language and the reasons behind dog behavior so we can better understand our dogs.

During the sessions, you’ll learn effective communication strategies and gain a deeper understanding of your dog’s behavior. We’ll address common challenges and empower you with the tools and knowledge to overcome them. Our trainers are passionate about helping you build a strong bond with your dog based on trust, respect, and mutual understanding.

By the end of the program, you’ll witness remarkable progress in your dog’s behavior and your collective bond. Armed with newfound confidence and skills, you’ll be equipped to tackle everyday challenges and enjoy a harmonious relationship with your four-legged companion.

Don’t live in our area? Times don’t work for you? Have a reactive dog?  We’ve got you covered! This class is also offered virtually so you can participate from the comfort of your home! You can sign up here: Virtual Education

  • Important Note: In-person group classes are NOT appropriate for dogs with reactivity. Reactivity can include: fear, aggression or over-excitement. While we love each and every pup, it becomes difficult for your trainer and the others in class when we are not able to focus as a group. If you are part of a class and your pup is experiencing reactivity, we will happily work with you to find time for private sessions that will better set you and your dog up for success. Or, feel free to join our virtual class and train from the comfort of your home!
