Basic canine manners are a must in a world where dogs are part of the family. Our class teaches your dog the basics of living with and among humans with grace and charm. Using real-life scenarios, your dog will practice polite sits for greeting guests and strangers; down stays so you can get some email answered, cook dinner, or enjoy a visit from a friend; walking nicely on leash, coming when called, and leave it for neighborhood pee trips and bigger outings, and how to make new dog friends.

If your dog could use some extra walking finesse, this class is just the thing.

Canine Good Citizen Group Training Class
A CGC certificate can open a lot of doors. Many landlords require it for renting with a dog, and many workplaces do the same for permission to bring your dog to work. Plus you get bragging rights and a very polite dog. We’ll get you and your dog ready to take the Canine Good Citizenship exam, which includes sitting to greet strangers, polite leash behavior with other dogs, out-of-sight stays, rock-solid recalls, and more.
Therapy Dog Group Training Class
If you’ve got a calm, ultra-friendly dog who loves to be the center of petting attention, you may have a therapy dog. Learn how to assess whether you and your dog are a good match for therapy work, and the skills and protocols involved in safely bringing joy to seniors and children in living centers or hospitals. We can’t think of a better way to spend time with your dog.
