Private Sessions

We offer six-week group classes ($119) as well as private instruction.  Our group courses are:  Puppy (10 weeks to five months); Beginner (five months to old as the hills); Intermediate, Advanced, Trick, and Therapy Dog.  Trick class just requires that your dog has been through either the Beginner or Puppy class.  Therapy Dog requires that your dog has solid manners.  Each class builds upon the skills learned in the previous class until you have the best dog possible, maybe even Lassie-like.


Both the Puppy and Beginner classes cover basic manners, safety commands, proper socialization, and problem prevention.  The Intermediate class builds on that base by adding more complex concepts and performing reliably despite distractions.  The Advanced class refines the polite-in-public skills, adds even more difficult situations, and prepares your dog for the American Kennel Club's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certification.
