Have fun and be amazed
I like to have fun. And I like to see my students and their dogs having fun, too. Even better, I like to see my students and their dogs achieve great things together while having all that fun. Results and fun—that’s what my classes are all about.

Basic Manners Dog Training Class
I want you to see a positive change in your dog in the real world, where it really matters. That’s why my basic manners class is organized around real-life situations, so your dog easily transfers his classroom learning to life at home and out in the world. My basic manners program is broken into two short 3-week classes to fit easily into your schedule:
Basic Home Manners
We’ll cover all the basics for a polite dog who’s a joy to live with, including sit, down, stay, and leave it. Our goal? A dog who knows how to handle life with humans. No more begging, no more pestering you when you’re trying to prep dinner or get some email answered, no more jumping on guests, no more stealing food from counters and the coffee table.
Basic Out & About Manners
This is manners for the outside world. We’ll teach come when called, walking nicely on leash, leave it, and basics like sit and down. Imagine a dog who walks calmly by your side, greets new friends with a polite sit, ignores nasty “treats” on the ground, and actually comes when you call her name.
Bonus: Canine Good Citizen Test
When you take both Basic Home and Out & About Manners you have the option of testing for your Canine Good Citizen title. A CGC title can be a great help when you’re renting with a dog or hoping to talk your boss into a “Take Your Dog To Work Day.” It also provides nice bragging rights.
When: Basic classes are Tuesdays at 6pm. Fall (September – November) Spring ( January- March)
$90 for 3 weeks + Orientation session without dogs (Choose from Basic Home or Basic Out & About)
$120 for 6 weeks of class + Orientation session without dogs (Save $60 when you sign up for Basic Home and Out & About together)
Puppy Training Class
It’s never too early to train. In fact, the earlier you train the more likely you are to enjoy the adult dog of your dreams. Did you know that most behavior problems in adult dogs are preventable during puppyhood? It’s true. Puppy class is an amazing investment. It gives you relief from puppy challenges like house training, chewing, and puppy biting. It gets your pup going on her basic manners—sit, down, stay, come, etc. And it helps her grow up into a well-balanced adult dog who loves people and other dogs and knows how to handle herself at home and in public. Hard to argue with that!
When: Tuesday at 5pm, for 6 consecutive weeks (Our unique open enrollment program means you can start anytime. Your puppy won’t get younger—join us now!)
Class Tuition: $120 for 6 weeks of class + Orientation session without puppies
In my opinion, there’s no better fun you can have with your dog. Agility is truly a team sport, and in addition to being a blast it does wonders for getting dogs and people working well together. Have a great time, get some exercise, and end up with a dog who is super focused and responsive—it just doesn’t get better.

Advanced Students: Thursdays at 6:30pm
Agility Fun Days: Offered quarterly
Private and Semi Private Lessons: Scheduled at a time convenient to you and your dog-loving buddies.
