Dog/Puppy Essentials

This class shows you how to have a happy, confident, well-behaved dog. It consists of 3 important skills: practical straight-up obedience (don’t drag me down the street, come when I call, etc.), life skills (don’t jump on my friends, chill out, etc.), and understanding your dog’s body language.

Along with a simple 4-step approach for teaching your dog almost anything you'll also get a course booklet and weekly training guides; force-free training; ongoing free email/phone support after the class ends; and a student-focused instructor with 20+ years’ experience teaching people and dogs.

Beyond Basics

This class takes your training to the next level by showing you the basic, intermediate, and advanced version of each exercise. This permits perfect fit training for you and your dog! If your dog’s heeling is fantastic, we’ll help you take it to the next level. If your sits are still a challenge, we’ll go back a level and reinforce the basics. The atmosphere is supportive yet challenging. The emphasis is on what you want to achieve with your dog within the exercises we teach, and then giving you the instruction and proper exercises to achieve your goals.
