Mind Your Manners 2

Learn how to troubleshoot challenging situations and achieve the desired behavior from your dog. This class focuses on strengthening existing behaviors while learning new ones, such as focus and impulse control.

Rocket Recall

Do you find yourself calling your dog to come over and over again? Is your dog unreliable off leash? Are you longing to take your dog to the beach or on a trail, but are nervous about taking that first step and unclipping the leash? You are not alone! Teaching your dog to come around distractions like squirrels, other dogs, and people takes time and practice. This class will share the secrets of getting a rocket recall, give you tips and tricks to motivate your dog, and show you how to properly practice at home for the best results!

Holiday Manners Crash Course

Are you and your dog ready for holiday visitors and visits? If not, we’ve got the help you need! This 3-week course is designed to refresh your dog’s manners just in time for the holidays. The behaviors taught in this class are particularly useful when guests arrive; they also help when dinner is being prepared, being served, and for those times when a tasty morsel hits the ground. Hoping to impress family and friends? We’ll even help your dog learn a cute parlor trick so s/he can show off! This course is a great choice for dogs who have already been to a beginning level class, even if they may need a refresher.
