Need help deciding which course is right for you and your dog? This might help!


Have a new puppy or are considering getting one?
Raising Your Pup! is a one-time, 2 1/2-hour class for humans only that helps you feel prepared with your new puppy and answers a ton of questions.

Young puppy between about 8 weeks and 4 months old? You too will want to look at the Raising Your Pup! class above.  Plus, you have 2 choices of classes: Puppy Kindergarten (as above), or Beginner Obedience & Manners, which is geared to helping pups learn their manners.

Older puppy between about 4-5 months  old? If he’s had no training at all, little socialization, and is still very much a puppy, you might consider the Puppy Kindergarten class. Or, you can consider the Beginner Obedience & Manners course!

If your dog has had little or no training, Beginner Obedience & Manners is for you.

Want your dog to earn his BA for dogs™, MA for dogs™, or PhD for dogs™ ? Help him earn each title in Intermediate Obedience & Manners, Advanced Obedience & Manners, and PhD Obedience & Manners.

Your dog knows his basic commands and you want to go further and continue honing his skills? Your next step is Intermediate Obedience & Manners, and then Advanced Obedience & Manners.

You’d like your dog to prepare to be a therapy dog? If he has his basic obedience, Therapy Dog Training is for you.

Want to be amazed by the power of the canine nose and teach your dog to locate items by scent? Nose Work is the class for you guys! No previous training necessary, either.

Want to do agility with your dog and learn the basics of using the various equipment? Have a look at Intro to Agility.

Dog knows his basic obedience but you want to add to his manners at home and with other people? Home & Social Manners is definitely for you.

Want to make sure your dog knows how to behave and listen to you in the real world, not just class? Training in the Real World is the class for you if your dog has already completed Basic Obedience.

Want to have some fun with your dog? As long as he will sit, down, and stay on cue, Trick Dog class might be right up your alley. You can have your dog earn his Trick Dog title by the end of this class and walk away with some neat tricks! Dog Games is another super fun class – it’s all games like Musical Mats, Simon Says, obstacle course, etc, that are so fun your dog won’t even know he’s polishing his obedience. Lots of laughing and cheering at this one!

Your dog doesn’t “fit” in any of the above? No problem! That’s why, for private and day training, I offer custom-designed courses!   Contact me and let’s talk!
