Now offering online course
EASY-TO-FOLLOW ONLINE COUSE TO BUILD YOUR DOG’S LEASH SKILLS
A self-paced, online course designed to help both you and your canine companion master the techniques needed for a more enjoyable experience during leash walking. This course offers comprehensive video demonstrations, in-depth written guidance, and downloadable summaries to provide a thorough understanding of the content.
Group classes are a great way to learn new skills with your dog. And with a maximum of five dogs per class, you will get plenty of individual feedback to help you both succeed.
Classes meet for 50 minutes, once a week
Classes offered – Puppy Preschool and Basic Manners
These classes will help get your puppy or dog off to a good start. You will learn the basics of positive reinforcement training, and your dog will learn behaviors that will be useful in everyday life. Includes access to video demonstrations for use outside of class.
