We are back! Our classes and socials are running every week and we are looking forward to seeing everybody! We have added more Puppy Kindergarten (under 6 months old) and Beginner Obedience (over 6 months old) classes for those who have not had a chance to attend classes yet. Please note that these two have the same curriculum, so if a time for one works well for you but your dog is not in the recommended age range, you are still welcome to join it! We have also expanded our dog sports with a new level of both Trick Dog Training and Rally Obedience! 

Class Information

Training Methods

We train with a dedicated focus on engagement: when your bond with your dog is mutually rewarding for both dog and owner, it is incredible what you can accomplish. From fun tricks to life saving safety skills, this type of training can achieve it all. Engagement training effectively creates a strong drive in your dog for what he loves most…YOU! This is a process and results in a deep connection between you and your dog that makes skill development easier, more fun and deeply seated.  We use treat rewards, toy rewards and the reward of partnership to achieve this deep bond that results from engagement. Our classes are fun for owners and dogs and we celebrate the progress of each team on their own merit. All of our training is based on whole science, is not compulsory or permissive.

 

 

What To Bring
