​Basic Obedience Unlimited Package

Eligible: Puppies over 8 weeks, select adult dogs

In addition to our regular private lessons, we offer a package of unlimited private lessons for 1 year, as well as access to our group basic obedience class when you and your dog are ready! This is a great option for young dogs to help work through the "teenage" months and help them become a beloved, behaved member of your family. With dedication, you will have a dog who can go anywhere with you and receive compliments!

Duration: 6 one hour sessions
Eligible: Dogs 6 months or older, Completion of 101 class

This group basic obedience class builds on the skills taught in our 101 class. During this class, we will review the foundation skills learned in the first class, and move on to using bigger and better distractions to help proof that obedience! This class will also cover the down, down/stay, and start building up the recall. 
We are very proud to share that our group class includes enrollment for life! Once you and your dog have completed a class with us, you are welcome to return with your accomplished graduate to continue polishing your skills, work on things that might slip, or use the new dogs to work on more advanced distractions! 

Duration: determined by each individual

Eligible: Any dog

Our private lesson program is appropriate for any dog! Whether your furry friend is just a little bit "too much" for group class, or you would be be more comfortable learning in a one-on-one environment, private lessons will work! We can also use private lessons to teach skills that aren't currently offered in a group class setting.

Private lessons are often a good place to start if your dog is very reactive or if you need to develop better leash control before joining a group class. If you aren't sure what might be best, we can help you to choose the right program at your initial evaluation.

Eligible: Dogs 6 months or older

Our group basic obedience class is geared towards giving you the tools to navigate the urban jungle with your best buddy. We will cover loose leash walking, sit, sit/stay, and a bed stay. We will also begin laying the foundation of a great recall and help you to work on common manners such as proper greeting behavior (in the house and on walks) and socialization.

Basic obedience skills are some of the most essential you can teach your dog. These skills will allow you to enjoy your dog without needing to constantly be worried about his behavior; they can also be life-saving! We believe that, taught to a sufficient level, obedience will give your dog more freedom than he could have previously imagined. 

 Whether you need help with manners in the house or out for a neighborhood walk, we can help! We offer several basic obedience programs to fit your needs:

​Understanding your dog and knowing how to control him, develop his potentials, and resolve behavior problems, emotional conflicts and frustrations are no less essential than love and respect.
