Upcoming Classes and Seminars

Where current science meets the art of training your dog.

Puppy Junior

This is the class for your younger puppy. In this class puppies are 8 - 12 weeks with one set of vaccines when they start. They're adorable as they learn how to find their way around. But there's the chewing, and the potty training; and the crate training, and the collars and leashes, and obedience. So much to learn for both of you! This course has puppy play as well, as long as the puppies have a suitable playmate in class.

Saturdays at 1:15 pm

Don't forget that if you begin training with your young puppy our puppy package

will take you through your journey right through puppy power with 20% savings.

Puppy Power

This course is six weeks for the pre-teens and young teenagers. Puppies are 13 - 24 weeks old in these classes when they begin. They should have two sets of vaccinations. These youngsters are still cute as buttons but they're learning a lot more independence. This is where your relationship with your dog shines through as we begin to work on some of the harder concepts for the youngsters like self control and focus, relationship and basic obedience. We add in stay and some easy recall games. We learn more about their health and we put more emphasis on leash skills. We let the puppies have play time as long as there is a suitable playmate in class.

Levels Obedience

Levels works in a series of 6 week courses. You stay as long as you need to in a Level and move up when you're ready. 6 weeks at a level will work for most dog/human teams but you may need longer or less time.

Level 1

is for the older adolescents, new to you dogs, and dogs that need a refresher. These dogs are 6 months or older and this is where the concept of the pet dog shines. We work on obedience and focus. We go through the basic obedience cues plus some while using lots of games for that so important relationship with your  family member. We introduce recall games, loose leash walking, and ongoing handling with your dog. There's body language, self control, avoiding common dog issues and more. The more you know, the better partners you become with your dog.

Monday April 25 7:15pm

Sunday May 1, 11:00 am

Level 2

is for the dogs that are intermediate. They know most of their basic cues and can do them most places. They understand a stay and will recall fairly well over short distances. In this level we ask them to stretch a little further, stay a little longer, be a little faster, work on leash (and sometimes off) reliably in the face of distractions. We work on heeling and we do some fun things to keep everyone motivated. Onward and upward.

Fun and Games

CARO Rally (beginner)

CARO stands for the Canadian Association of Rally Obedience. This is a dog sport where teamwork rules supreme as you and your dog work together to conquer a course full of obedience challenges. It's fun for all dogs and their people and it sharpens your obedience work AND your relationship. This course is taught in 6 week segments and CARO Rally has multiple levels and lots of room for growth.

Tricks, Games, and Obstacles

Working and playing with your dog on the fun things is a great way to encourage focus and teamwork. Often the dogs become so absorbed in the stations that they ignore everything around them. Lots of fun to be had here and titles to be earned if you wish. You get to go home with a tired, happy dog. This course is taught in 6 week segments and there are multiple levels to work through. Let's play!
