Advanced Obedience Class
Classes designed for dogs that have graduated from one of our other programs, such as puppy-preschool, doggy overnight camp or a private lesson program. Group classes use the knowledge and commands previously learned to help dog and handler work around and through distractions. Each class is focused on the needs of its participants. Pre-registration is required.
Private lessons are designed for puppies and dogs of all ages. We will come to your house and evaluate your dog and help with any issues. We will begin basic obedience instruction to develop the language between you and your dog. We will work with you and your family in the comfort of your own home and provide all the homework and training supplies necessary. Each lesson is between 1 and 1.5 hours depending on you and your dog.
Refresher Day Training
