Dog Training Classes

I wish my Dog (would/ wouldn’t) ____!

  • Is there something your dog is doing that is driving you nuts?
  • What is the most annoying behavior your dog does? Would you like to change it?
  • Does your dog jump to greet everyone who visits?

There may be one, two or many things you want to change about your dog. Join our “I wish my Dog (Would/Wouldn’t ______” class to work on each of those dog challenges.

Puppy Games and Play

Puppies have a lot to learn but very short attention spans. Most of all, puppies want to PLAY!!! And we want to PLAY with our puppies! So let’s us Play to teach our puppy how to be a good family member.

In Puppy Games and Play class, we will learn how to incorporate games into our daily lives in small doses. In class we will alternate games/work and puppy play.
