Training Classes & Schedules
New Dog or Puppy? Our Good Manners Classes will start your new pup out on the "right paw"!
***If you have just added a new dog or puppy to your family, your dog must be in your home for at least 2-3 weeks prior to attending class. Dogs must be fully vetted prior to coming in and free from all contageous diseases and parasites. Evidence of a clear fecal is required.
Please note, class sizes are limited and often fill quickly. Please register early!
All classes run for 6 weeks and are $150 unless otherwise noted.
We are adding new classes all the time.
But first....Let's talk about training methods. We are a positive reinforcement based training center. We use what is rewarding to your dog, whether that is toys or treats. We do use a clicker, and if that is not comfortable for you, we can show you how to use a word marker. We reward the behavior we want.
We do not use corrections. These include, but are not limited to; choke collars, prong collars, shock collars aka e-collars. We take a very strong stand against these training methods. That is not to say they don't "sometimes" work, it's just that we don't believe in using them. If you are attending any kind of training class or doggie social using whips, shock collars, rolled up towels, or any of the above, even if it's suggested that these are gentle methods and "positive", they are not compatible with our training methods. You can't go back and forth and get results. Cesar Millan does not live here!
An Intro to Obedience Class designed for Puppies & Dogs 10 Weeks and up. We will learn all the basics: sit, down, stay, coming when called, walking on a loose leash and much more!
We will start with an introduction to Clicker Training and discuss common problems and solutions. All training methods are positive, reward based.
Classes are 45 minutes long with 10 minutes for questions and shopping!
Prep School and Agility FAQ's
My dog has a CGC, CD, or another title, do I have to take Prep School?
Yes, Prep School is a requirement for acceptance into our Agility Program. All dogs, no matter the level of training, start in Prep School.
We have taken Agility classes at another training center, do we need to take Prep School?
Yes, we find that other Agility classes are not structured in the same way that we are, and the dogs do not always have the foundation training they need to succeed in our classes.
I cannot make the time slot for the scheduled Prep School, is there another option?
I'm sorry, but no, our schedule is packed and we are not able to make exceptions. Our Agility Program is extremely popular. While you don't have to compete in agility with your dog, the classes are geared towards competition. We do not offer "agility for fun" type classes.
If we attend Prep School, will that guarantee us a spot in an Agility Class?
Not necessarily. Our instructors will determine if your dog is a good fit for Agility Class. While there is no "pass or fail", we may suggest you take Prep School a second time if your dog is not ready to enter class. If you are ready, we will then place you in a class when we have openings.
5:30 - 6:15
A great class for you and your dog to take training to the next level! Learn self control, solid stays, recalls and so much more in a fun, rewarding atmosphere. For dogs of any age, this is the next step after Good Manners or foundation training for any dog related sport.
