Many people think that dog training classes are just a series of exercises and maybe some socialization. They are much more, especially as you advance. Organized dog training classes help teach you how to best communicate with your dog, provide an opportunity for your dog to socialize with other dogs and help with many behavioral problems. Much like people, every dog is different. Your pet may be hyperactive, laid-back, serious, silly, shy, or over confident. Regardless of their differences, dog training is a necessity for all dogs and will benefit your entire family. The more you learn how your dog’s mind works and the better he/she understands what you expect, the stronger the relationship will become. This stronger relationship will help with the challenges of dog ownership and allow you to enjoy your pet more fully. We offer three levels of training classes; puppy, beginner, and advanced obedience. Our classes are offered on Monday and Tuesday nights in the fall and winter, and Tuesday and Wednesday nights in the spring. All dogs must have proof of current vaccinations, be flea free, worm free, and not be contagious.
