We are excited to offer dog training classes based on the most up-to-date forms of positive reinforcement training. We offer puppy kindergarten and adult manners classes. The classes are private, one-on-one training that occur once weekly for 6 weeks. Don’t wait; sign up today!

Puppy Kindergarten Class (For puppies 8 weeks-6 months of age)

Puppy kindergarten covers an introduction to clicker training and how dogs learn, problem prevention, and learning new cues such as:

  • Focus
  • Sit
  • Down
  • Stay
  • Recall
  • Go to place
  • Nose target
  • Paw target
  • Loose leash walking

Adult Manners Class (For dogs 6 months and up)

Adult manners class is for those dogs who need a refresher course for basic manners. It also includes an introduction to clicker training if you and your dog are new to training. Some of the manners that we will cover in class include the following:

  • Focus
  • Sit
  • Down
  • Stay
  • Go to place and settle
  • Nose target
  • Paw target
  • Loose leash walking
  • Sit for an open door
  • Sit politely for a greeting

We will work on an individual basis with adding distractions, distance, and duration to each of these behaviors.

Behavior Modification Training (For dogs of all ages)

Behavior modification training is for those dogs who are aggressive, reactive, or anxious. We use positive-reinforcement training to help counter-condition and desensitize dogs to various triggers. Before any training sessions, we ask that you schedule a phone or in-person consult with our trainer.
