Group Classes

Our group classes offer a structured and safe learning environment for both pets and their parents. Our classes follow a comprehensive curriculum that covers essential obedience skills as well as addressing the underlying emotions and motivators. The curriculum progresses in a logical sequence, building upon foundational skills to gradually advance to more complex behaviors. We also focus on responsible pet ownership, emphasizing techniques to foster a strong bond between dogs and their humans and how to safely navigate this crazy world. With group classes dogs will learn skills to help them become well-rounded, behaved companions while owners gain valuable insights into effective training methods, canine communication, and what socialization really is.
