This six-week course is designed for both 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 family-friendly – children age 8 and up are strongly encouraged to attend and be active participants in their dog’s learning!


In order to minimize COVID risk, all human students are required to wear a mask when we train indoors, and we are also limiting attendance to two handlers per dog. Thank you for understanding. We want our students to learn and have fun in a way that is safe for everyone!
