Rally/Agility Combo 1 Class Is it Rally? Is it Agility? No, it's both combined! This is a unique class where we have combined low intensity Agility with Rally Obedience. The dog/handler team will start off with a few Rally signs. But in between the Rally Obedience signs there might be a tunnel or a barrel or a low jump instead of another Rally sign. Great for dogs with physical disabilities that can't do traditional Agility due to bad hips or elbows or whatever the case may be. Also great for people that just want to do something fun with their dog. This class will build confidence and teamwork and will be fun for both the handler and the dog! Come check it out! NEW CLASS BEGINS Monday, December 14th at 6:15pm in Hartland. Class is limited to 6 dogs.

Our Training Philosophy

Training is the most important thing you will ever do for your dog. How you approach training will forever affect the relationship between you and your dog.

We believe in positive, force-free training methods, which have been tested to show great results. We use a reward-based training approach that makes the learning experience fun for the dog and will ensure that your dog will put its "best paw forward", listening to and obeying your commands. We keep our classes fun for both dogs and owners while learning in a friendly, positive environment.

Best Paw Forward, which celebrated its 10th anniversary in the dog training business in 2012, was named No. 1 for Best Dog Training on the WISN-TV A-List for the sixth year in a row in 2014.
