What makes our Group Classes Training Program successful?
Indoor Climate-Controlled Classroom
Small Student-to-Teacher Ratio - We limit our classes to ten dogs with family members (6 years and older).
Child-Friendly - We understand that your child participation in learning training skills enhance the whole family dynamic.
Reward-Based System - Easy to implement and does not require force and fear of punishment to get results.
Repeating a Class (Basic Companion class only) - Upon completing a class, you will receive a $10 certificate for any future class.
Play Groups - Our Puppy Start class includes a socialization time for friendly puppies.
We use humane, effective Positive Reinforcement training methods that make training enjoyable for you and your pup!
