Small Group Classes

(Please know that due to the popularity of our private lesson programs we are suspending our group classes and plan to resume some time in the near future, please check back in from time to time as changes do occur.) 

Unlike traditional group classes, we prefer small and intimate settings with less distractions to begin with allowing both you and your dog to better focus and learn. Plus, small semi-private type classes provide an excellent, more economic alternative to our private lesson packages for obedience and behavioral modification training.  

Dogs and their families are loving our simple-to-reinforce approach to training techniques that with on-going effort are easily transferable at home and in real world situations.

  • we set up small challenges to help dogs learn to follow direction
  • our small challenges help owners sharpen their handling and confidence skills 

Some things that we cover in our classes:

  • how to have fun with your dog
  • how to effectively manage your dog in different settings
  • puppy raising 101; potty & crate training, jumping, mouthing
  • to offer polite greetings when guests visit 
  • to focus on owner with distractions
  • sit, lay down, stay, chill and relax 
  • walk on a loose and to come when called

Once you answer a few questions about your dogs personality, our trainers will be in touch with you to confirm your weekly class reservations.

Please note – In order to promote a safe and valuable learning environment, AGGRESSIVE AND REACTIVE DOGS ARE NOT ALLOWED IN THESE CLASSES. You can set these dogs up for better success by enrolling your team into our private lesson package options

Vaccination Information

We require a minimum of two series of Parvo vaccinations prior to attending classes. Most vets will recommend three as there are some health risks associated with puppies not being fully vaccinated prior to allowing them to go to places were other dogs have been.

However, it is very important that puppy parents know that the American Veterinarian Association says its even more important to get puppies into group classes early on as many dogs are being euthanized due to behavioral issues that would have never came to be had the puppies and their owners been part of a well structured group class atmosphere.
