5 Weeks of Fun and Learning

Sign-up for doggie training classes with our expert Julie who has been teaching classes and working in various animal shelters for the last 20 years. All classes meet on Sundays for 5 consecutive weeks in an air-conditioned playroom with 3-5 other dogs and their pet parent. Each week you and your pup will learn new skills that you can easily continue to practice at home. All lessons are taught using scientifically proven learning theories to give you the skills necessary to eliminate undesirable habits and reinforce great behavior. The best part is the deeper bond you'll create with your pup after all the fun rewards.
