Group classes are a super fun and positive way to work with your dog as a team while you both learn new skills. One of our top goals is that students take what they're learning in class and apply it in everyday life with their dogs & puppies. We'll help you develop training and problem solving skills so that you feel confident helping your dog succeed, even outside of the classroom. Our classes are kept small to give each student one-on-one help from the instructor and class assistants. We are looking forward to having you join us for a class!
