Total Recalltest

This 3-week (only 3 classes, so coming to all three is very important!!!) workshop will focus on two main behaviors: wait and come. We will explore why our dogs don’t come when called, how to change their behavior from “Maybe I will, maybe I won’t,” to “I cannot wait until you call me so I can come running!” We will explore strategies to change our relationship and our behavior to ensure this is our dog’s favorite trick, and discuss some common mistakes we all make that cause our dogs to not come when called.

Wag it! Gamestest

“Wag It! Games” is a new sport created by Sumac Grant-Johnson that “Offers a variety of relationship based dog training activities full of smiles and wags”. It combines “Shadow Skills”, a variety of heeling maneuvers (right, left and behind) including spins, crosses, flips, U turns and finishes, “Sniff it Skills”, “No Need for Speed Obstacle Course”, and “Dog Ball” where dogs learn to maneuver a ball through a course using their noses only. There are 3 levels of competition in Wag It!

Canine Body Languagetest

Canine Body Language Part 1:  We will discuss normal and appropriate behavior, to understand calm and relaxed body postures.

Canine Good Citizentest

The CGC Program is a two-part program that stresses responsible pet ownership for owners and basic good manners for dogs. All dogs who pass the 10-step CGC test may receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club. As you work with your dog to teach the CGC skills, you'll discover the many benefits and joys of training your dog. Training will enhance the bond between you and your dog.

Fun and Focustest

This 6-week class includes games and exercises designed to help our adult dogs be more attentive, calm, and focused.  We will explore intermediate and advanced leash handling skills, longer stays (including distracted stays), automatic sits, automatic waits, down from a distance, stronger recalls, obedience from various positions (teaching our dogs to mind even when we are laying down, for instance), and both basic & advanced pointing games.

Puppy Preschooltest

Pups work on bite inhibition and handling exercises. All puppies must have started their vaccination series and be between the ages of 9 to 14 weeks. Attendance is FREE! We offer this class at no cost because socialization saves lives! Puppies can ONLY be properly socialized and learn bite inhibition in the first few months of life.

Although this class is free- preregistration is required. 

Please submit your intake form, and expect an email from us to let you know of your next step for class.

Puppy Kindergartentest

We keep class sizes small with just 6 pups per class and mainly off leash to help ensure good manners. Besides basic commands we will also discuss house training, crate training, puppy proofing the house, nutrition, grooming and much more. All puppies must have started their vaccination series from a veterinarian and be between the ages of 9 to 18 weeks to start (this means puppies can start this class anytime between 9 to 18 weeks old). Classes are 6 weeks long and puppies come to all 6 hour long classes.

Puppy Prep Schooltest

This class will help with further socialization, continued manners as well as body awareness and confidence. We have off leash play time in every class! Some new commands as well as hand signals will be introduced, and each week the pups will work on a different piece of agility equipment. Whether the plan for the pup is to continue doing any dog sports or not, this class will help maintain a level of obedience that will carry them on to adulthood.
