Our group classes are a cost effective way to train your dog! Each dog owner will learn to communicate and train their dog in basic obedience and behavioral manners. In this small class environment, you and your dog will get to practice new learned skills around controlled distractions. Behaviors taught in class include focus, sit, down, come, stay, basic leash walking, greeting other dogs and people, and leave it. Our trainer will also cover how to apply these skills in your day-to-day life as well as maintain good behavior and communication with your Canine.
