Life With Dog 101

If you have a puppy over 18 weeks, you’ve never taken your dog to a class before, or if you just want a refresher, this is the class for you. We will address all the basic commands, manners, distraction training, and provide guidance for any challenging doggie habits you may be dealing with at home.

Learning Is Fun at Any Age

A newly adopted dog is exciting no matter what age he or she is.  An adolescent dog can be a joy, but let’s face it: there are moments when you’ll wonder what to do with your young dog’s boundless energy. Whether you’ve just adopted your dog, or perhaps haven’t started training your pup yet, our award winning instructors will support you through any difficulties and inspire you with success!
