We require new training clients to complete a 30 -45 minute in-person introduction seminar prerequisite (no dogs) before the first day of training. There is no additional charge for this if you are registered for a group class.

We require new training clients to either complete a 30 - 45 minute online asynchronous introductory seminar or a 1-hour in-person consultation before the first day of training.




Classes meet weekly and are offered year-round. 

Each class is followed by a brief, structured socialization period. Any dog enrolled is invited to stay after class for supervised and guided social play opportunities.

Leash Walking

This course will discuss equipment to assist with leash walking manners and we will be implementing (or refreshing) commands, and working with a variety of distractions to assist with proofing leash manners. This course is perfect for pups new to leash manners, pups who need to brush up, or pups who need more distractions to proof their leash walking.

Recall & Engagement

In this course, we will be introducing the basics of recall to you and your pup. We will be providing you with various tools, techniques, and commands to assist with introducing or improving upon your pup's recall word. This course is best suited for pups new to recall, pups who need more distractions to proof recall, or pups who need to brush up

House Manners

In this course, we will cover commands such as stay and place. We will also be working on manners such as greeting people in the home and/or manners around food. The goal for the end of the course would be that you can take the tools and commands that we have implemented and continue to build on them outside of the course.

We do offer packages for our group classes.
