GROUP OBEDIENCE CLASSES

Group Dog classes are a series of lessons where you learn with your dog in class then take the dog home and practice the lessons there and out in real life with your dog. Group classes offer distractions and the dog and handler learn how to communicate even with people and other dogs around. Classes are limited in size so each person & their dog can receive personalized attention. Classes focus on helping your dog and you to understand that unwanted behaviors don’t work, only polite behavior earns rewards. We use only reward based, positive training. No leash yanking. No choke chains. We offer a variety of choices from puppy socializing classes and beginner's classes to more advanced dog training.
