Group Dog Training Classes

To register please click here. Group Dog classes are a series of lessons where you learn with your dog in class then take the dog home and practice the lessons there with your dog.  They are less expensive than individual training, but also require the biggest commitment on your part to make the training effective.

Theme Descriptions

These classes are designed to give a foundation of basic training and basic manners in and out of the house. Each class has a different theme. We set up a different real life scenario and then go through the exercises that will teach you and your dog how to behave in each. The themes are:

  • Café Day – This class is to train to behave in public, on the street and sidewalks. We pretend we are going to the sidewalk café and behave with lots of people around that want to meet and greet your dog.
  • Veterinary, Health and Grooming Day – We show you how to handle emergencies and take you through a grooming and mock examination. We cover some grooming to help you avoid unneeded costs and vet bills too.
  • Outing Day – Taught in the real world, we cover car and street safety and training on the town. We teach some emergency measures in case your dog gets away, and how to handle the dog park.
  • Training Day – We focus on teaching the dog how to pay attention, listen and follow commands. We cover some basic commands and how to teach and when to use them.
  • Household Behavior Day – This class is to cover all about problems that occur at home including guests and workmen in the house. We also address common problems like jumping, barking and housebreaking in addition to taking time for individual questions.
  • Confidence Course Day – This is a fun class where we teach the dogs different surfaces and obstacles. We build their confidence and teach stairs and even include a few agility obstacles.

Canine Nose Work

Nose Work is where your dog really gets a chance to use its best skill. Since their sense of smell is really their biggest talent this class gives them a chance to use it. The beginner class teaches your dog to find food that is hidden using their nose. It gives you and your dog an intellectual and physical training exercise. You can practice right at home and you don’t need to worry about buying a bunch of fancy equipment. Students progress on to searching for odors hidden inside, outside, and on cars! Our curriculum is sanctioned by the NACSW. For more info on the fun new dog sport Canine Nose Work take a look here.

Intro to Nose Work/Continuing Nose Work

This class is for dogs who are new to nosework and for dogs who have completed Intro to Nosework and have good hunt drive on primary reinforcer and are ready for odor. It will be a combination class with dogs working at their own level.
