TRAINING CLASSES

Canine Group Classes


Canine group training classes are now available. Classes are 4 weeks in duration, with a maximum of 6 dogs per class.  Classes are divided based on age for health reasons and to ensure proper early socialization.  Our classes focus on teaching basic obedience, helping caregivers with puppy issues,such as biting and house soiling, and allowing puppies to socialize with each other and other people during class. We recommend the whole family participate in classes, including children.

All Group Classes cost $100+tax per 4 weeks.  

Reactive Dog class is pay as you go- $25+tax per session.
