Chill | Relax 

Contact us for enrollment information on this extra popular class that we keep small and focused. 

We all want a dog that we can engage with, take on walks and when we are tired, we just want the dog to chill out and do nothing with us. This is a great class that will help you learn how to properly fill your dog’s physical and emotional cup without over stimulating.

 


Loose Leash Walking 

Contact us for enrollment information

Once your dog has a basic understanding of obedience in level 1 or level 2 class, you can consider enrolling your dog in this focused loose lease walking class that will include adding distractions so you can take the additional steps needed to have a dog that walks politely on leash. Pack Walking Makes All Behaviors Better!


Come When Called, Recall

Contact us for enrollment information 

Once your dog has a basic grasp on loose leash walking, you can sign up for our most respected class of all- Recall! When your dog can consistently stop and leave a high value object alone to come to you when called, you will have literally won the jack-pot!


Scent Games 

Contact us for enrollment information 

What better way to bond with your dog than to play games with him that use his nose! Our trainer Zakk can help you and your dog reach for the stars in AKC Scent competition or just to have fun!

This is an exciting new sport which teaches the dog to use its nose to find a specific scent on cue, and then tell their handler that they’ve found it and when ready the teams can advance to harder finds that will be held in interior and exterior environments.


Trick Dogs 

Contact us for enrollment information 

If you want better obedience skills, teach some tricks! The more things you teach your dog, the better he gets at learning.

Tricks are easier and more rewarding to teach because we place much less pressure on ourselves and our dogs. When we teach down or stay its much more serious, when we teach spin, shake, high five or roll over it just feel like fun.
