Whether you intend to go on to shows, trials or just want to have a great dog, we have the right fit of classes for you. Everyone learns in a fun, positive and safe atmosphere!
We will be closed 7/3, 7/4 and 7/5 for 4th of July weekend. No classes or Puppy Social.
Level 2 Manners Picks up where Basic Manners left off and concentrates on those hard to train areas. Improved manners and reliability, more emphasis on heeling and automatic sits, preparation for off-leash heeling, more attention exercises to keep your dog focused on you rather than another dog or person, proofing the recall so that it becomes automatic and reliable. All exercises take cues learned in Basic Manners and practice them at greater distances and with more distractions. Go to mat, drop on recall, fronts and finishes are also covered. Level 2 is a great way to prepare for Canine Good Citizen, Therapy Dog, Rally Obedience and Outdoor Adventures. Basic Manners class is a prerequisite.Class size is limited! It's great fun...come join us!
Rally 1 Rally is a sport, held in conjunction with obedience training, where the dog and handler proceed at their own pace through a course of directional signs in a manner similar to Agility but with obedience signs at each station instead of obstacles. The dog and handler team heel from sign to sign and perform the exercises indicated on the sign at each station. It is fun and a great way to continue working on cues and learning new skills. Class size is limited! It's great fun...come join us! Basic Manners 1 is a prerequisite.

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.
