What Levels of Training Do You Offer?


Beginner classes are the perfect place for you and your dog to start achieving your training goals. These classes are designed to help your dog learn the fundamentals of good manners. Beginner classes are a great way to improve communication and enhance the bond between you and your dog. We have beginner classes for pups and dogs of all ages.

These classes are recommended for dogs who are comfortable being within proximity to other dogs and around unknown people. Although we use management tools in our classes that prevent most direct interaction between dogs, our beginner group classes are not appropriate for dogs who exhibit reactive behaviors (barking/lunging) around strange dogs or people.


Our advanced classes are geared toward those who have previously taken classes and for human-dog teams who are looking to achieve that next level of behavior and training greatness!


Our specialty classes are designed to be fun, informative, and really take your behavior and training to the next level!
