Teen Manners Class

For 6 Month to 2 Year Old Dogs

No one really talks about how difficult adolescent dogs can be! They have more energy and emotions than both puppies and adult dogs. They tend to lean towards independence and even flat out refusal, because they are always choosing what is fun over what is expected of them. They need more exercise, more mental stimulation, more attention and more TRAINING than any other age group! Our Teen Manners class takes all of these things into consideration. We work on teaching you how to work with your dog, instead of working against him. We will work on sit and down stay, come when called, walking nicely on leash, dropping items willingly, polite greetings, leaving items alone when asked, and waiting patiently for food, at doorways and when having their leash attached. You will also get to explore the wonderful world of enrichment and learn how it can (and will) change your life with your dog! This is a rolling enrollment class. You choose the dates that work with your schedule. 

Six Session Package - $160

Twelve Session Package - $310

Back To Basics Class

For Dogs 2 Years Old And Up

All dogs need some training, and it's never too late to teach an "old" dog new tricks! Whether you have a new to you rescue dog, or just never got around to training when your dog was younger, this class is for you! We will work on sit and down stay, come when called, walking nicely on leash, dropping items willingly, polite greetings, leaving items alone when asked, and waiting patiently for food, at doorways and when having their leash attached. You will also get to explore the wonderful world of enrichment and learn how it can (and will) change your life with your dog! This is a rolling enrollment class.

The goal is to keep each dog comfortable and within their comfort zone while teaching them the basic skills and manners that all dogs should know.  We will work on sit and down stay, come when called, walking nicely on leash, dropping items willingly, polite greetings, leaving items alone when asked, and waiting patiently for food, at doorways and when having their leash attached. You will also get to explore the wonderful world of enrichment and learn how it can (and will) change your life with your dog! This is a rolling enrollment class.

Beyond Basics

For Graduates of Teen Manners, Back to Basics or Similar Class Elsewhere (Unsure? Please ask for instructor permission before enrolling!)

Are you ready to take your skills to the next level? Our Beyond Basics class does just that! We work on increasing the difficulty and fluency of basic behaviors by adding distraction, distance and duration. Skills are improved though a series of fun and sometimes competitive games, including some from the well-known "Control Unleashed" off-leash training program. This class is both fun and functional! This is a rolling enrollment class. You choose the dates that work with your schedule.

Settle & Chill

For Graduates of Teen Manners, Back to Basics or Similar Class Elsewhere (Unsure? Please ask for instructor permission before enrolling!)

Like their people, dogs sometimes need to learn how to relax and be able to self regulate. In this class we will explore different skills to help our dogs settle on their mats or in their crates while life happens around them. Common scenarios might include human dinner time and visitors to the house. Dogs will also learn to redirect away from distractions, and build the skills of Leave It and Trade. This class meets 4 weeks in a row. No make up classes will be offered. 

Four Weeks - $120

Walk This Way

For Graduates of Teen Manners, Back to Basics or Similar Class Elsewhere (Unsure? Please ask for instructor permission before enrolling!)

Loose Leash Walking is all about the connection between you and your dog. In this class we will work on attention and focus, play games to make walking together fun and safe, and work on moving calmly past distractions such as other dogs and people. There will also be a focus on creating a rocket fast and reliable Recall (coming when called). This class meets 4 weeks in a row. No make up classes will be offered.
