Most of our classes are "session" classes with a particular start and end date. We have a few classes that are rolling admission, flex classes. This is indicated in the class descriptions below
Class costs vary, but most group classes are $190 for 6 one-hour classes.
Our Manners classes follow a "levels" program where you can move up at your own pace. This step-by-step approach teaches a dog how to succeed in a variety of situations. We also find that this training makes it more enjoyable for the owners by moving along as skills are gained, and progressing on your own timeline. The Levels system will also help you to understand when your dog is ready for our sports and other advanced classes.
Vaccinations and other health info: please upload your dog's vaccination record when signing up for class, or bring to your first class. Puppies should be vaccinated appropriately for their age. All dogs and puppies must be vaccinated in accordance with state law and your veterinarian's advice.
Our group Puppy Kindergarten classes will get your puppy (under 20 weeks) off to a great start! We work on the beginnings of basic obedience skills, such as sit, down, leash walking, come when called, with plenty of time to discuss puppy issues and socialization. Puppy classes are offered on Monday and Wednesday evenings and Saturday afternoons. Our Puppy K class fee includes a copy of the book "The Toolbox for Building a Great Family Dog" by Terry Ryan
We offer day school for pups under 6 months, or older with instructor permission. Pups come and stay with us for a half day. Our day school provides the perfect combination of play, rest and learning for younger dogs who may be too overstimulated by regular day care. Day school is currently offered on Mondays and/or Thursdays from 12-5. The cost is $240 for 4 days.
For dogs older than 5 months. Start fresh with new skills or brush up if you haven't been training for awhile. We will cover Sit, Down, Stay, Come when Called, Leave it, Leash Walking and Polite Greetings. Each dog/handler team progresses through the levels at their own speed. Manners classes are offered on Monday and Wednesday evenings, Wednesday mornings, and Saturday mornings or afternoons.
Does your dog bark, lunge and get stressed when they see other dogs, people or strange sights? Learn skills to help yourself and your dog stay calm in these situations.

Classes are held on Sundays and occasional Tuesdays.
