Classes

Obedience Classes are a great idea for every dog, regardless of breed or age. The more training you do with your dog the more you will enjoy them. Not only does it create a well-behaved dog, it tires them out. All dogs need a job to do, and all dogs need leadership. Our classes are aimed at teaching the dog who their leader is and building compliance while still having fun.

Classes are kept small so everyone gets plenty of help. 

​Classes are limited to just 8 dogs. Spots are only reserved when full payment is made. This is non-refundable. Call to enroll.
