Basic Skills for Adolescent & Adult Dogs

(Beginner Class)

In-Person Class

About this Class:

Your dog wants to spend time with you. You want a well-mannered companion. In this class, you both win! Working as a team, you will help your dog learn basic skills and practice training exercises while working around other dogs. This class is also a stepping stone to many of our other classes.

We use only positive methods – no choke, prong, or electronic collars. Training is fun for both you and your dog!
