What are the advantages of group classes?

Group classes cost less and dogs learn to work around other dogs right from the beginning. As long as you come to class, pay attention and practice at home, your results can be excellent. We have had dogs win AKC “high in trial” awards after completing our 10-week class.

How large are your classes?

Puppy classes have a maximum of 8 dogs. Basic obedience classes are 10 or less. Smaller class size ensures more individual attention. This way you aren’t “lost in the crowd” and we get to know you and your dog individually.

How often do classes meet?

Classes meet once a week for an hour each time.

How often do new classes start?

New classes start about once a month year-round. Contact us for the starting date of our next group session.

What will my puppy learn in “Puppy Class”?

Puppies will learn to enjoy and act appropriately with other dogs and people. They will also develop a more willing and responsive attitude while learning to walk well on a leash, wait at doors and gates, come when called, sit and lie down. Solutions for “puppy problems” are also included.
