Learning to interact with other dogs and pay attention to commands and instructions is a key skill for any dog. Class size is limited to ensure personal attention AND, for all of our standard courses (6 weeks or longer), we offer complimentary doggie daycare on the day of class. With over 50 courses covering everything from obedience (basic to advanced), behavior modification, sports, fun & games and public appearances, we have a class for you!

VACCINES / ILLNESS – You must provide proof of required vaccinations in order to participate. For off-leash puppy classes, pups must be 10 days past their first DHPP vaccination. For ALL OTHER CLASSES, the following vaccinations are required: Rabies, Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus, Canine Influenza (H3N2) and Bordatella. Any dog that shows signs of illness will be removed. Please do not bring your dog to class if they are vomiting, have diarrhea, are sneezy or coughing.

The CLASS ENTRANCE is under the black awning at the back of the building.

ONLY CLASSES FOR THIS QUARTER ARE LISTED ON THIS PAGE. As always, please contact us if there is a class you want to see offered or if you would like to be contacted as soon as the next quarter is published and online.

Puppy Specific Offerings

Designed to provide an obedience foundation through positive methods, these classes are open for pups between 10 and 20 weeks of age and who are least 10 days past their first DHPP vaccination. Off-leash Puppy IS NOT an obedience class. It is a socialization and “life with a dog” class designed to establish a foundation of success for young pups. Learn how to set-up your home for a puppy, prevent problem behaviors, house training, crate training, health and wellness and critical socialization skills.
