This six-week course is designed for puppies and adult dogs ages 12 weeks and older. Owners and dogs will both be instructed, so that the dog responds to its human family members, not just to the trainer!

Included in the curriculum are commands such as sit, down, stay, and come, plus leash walking instruction and even a couple of tricks! Students will also learn how to teach their pets to wait at doorways, how to sit for petting, and how to “leave it!” Our courses are very family-friendly, and older children are encouraged to attend.
