Training

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.

REACTIVE ROVER (1 PET & 1 PET PARENT)

$300 FIVE 1-HOUR SESSIONS

Some dogs vocalize to tell us that they are scared, upset, or overly confident. This class looks to find the cause of your dog’s distress and understand it. Then we work on changing how your dog perceives things that might trigger her. The goal of this class is to develop a solid foundation of the ‘why’ so that we can start to transition your dog’s distress into calm and happiness.

Sign up for our waitlist:

Comfortable Clothes

Wear comfortable clothes and shoes that you can move around in.

Treats

A sandwich bag about half full of small, high value, easy to eat treats are important.

Equipment

A regular flat collar with a quick-release snap off and a 6-foot leash. If you would like to use a no-pull device, a Gentle Leader or Easy Walk Harness will help you! As a fear-free facility, we do not use any other types of training aids.
