Curriculum

- Socialization: this class focuses on letting dogs interact or play with others in a controlled environment. Owners learn more about body language, appropriate play, and when to step in. This is a great way to prepare dogs for dog parks or other off leash environments. This class is only for dogs who are already friendly.

- In between play, we will have training breaks to practice behaviors the dogs already know, but now with the distraction of other dogs around.

- We will also practice coming when called. Eventually your dog should be able to come to you even off leash with other dogs around.

Specialty Classes

Specialty Classes are available on request if enough people are interested. Prices vary depending on class size. Please contact me to be put on a list if you are interested in one of the following, or if you have another special request.

Tricks Class:

Learn various tricks such as shake, high five, spin, bow, kiss, speak, retrieve, tunnels, jumps, "find it" nose work, or any other requests.  

Reactivity Class:

For dogs that bark at other dogs or people on leash. In this class we will practice teaching your dog to focus on you with other dogs and distractions around. We will work up to being able to walk passed each other on leash.
