Obedience Level 1: Fundamentals
5 week class | $299

This is a great place to begin learning the basics of positive reinforcement and clicker training! You will be introduced to basic management skills and tools to help stop unwanted behaviors and set your dog up for success, as well as the three main ways to train a new behavior: capturing, shaping and luring.

Once a new behavior is learned, we will show you how to effectively add a cue. The basic behaviors/cues we work on include: name game, touch/recalls, sit to greet, leave it, down, go to the mat, heel/side, and the beginning steps towards loose leash walking.

On your first day you will be sent home with a new treat pouch, clicker, and martingale collar.  Handouts will be sent via email.   Your dog will also benefit from learning how to focus and work around other dogs and people!

Obedience Level 1 group class also includes 60 days access to the online classroom for hybrid learning.

Obedience Level 2: High School
5 week class | $225

Once your dog graduates from Level 1, it's now time to find out if they truly have their new behaviors on cue. You will also learn how to steadily progress the difficulty of these behaviors so they become more reliable, and learn about stimulus control.

We progress with loose leash walking, as well as show you how to add in some self control at home (such as sit and stay for their food bowl).

For a fun change of pace, we also get you started on how to teach your little ones some tricks!

Obedience Level 3: College Prep Training
5 week class | $225

Now that your dog has all of their behaviors on cue, it's time to get serious about duration, distance and distractions!

Learn how to increase your dogs ability to follow cues with various levels of distractions, as well as how start getting more behavior for less rewards. You will also learn how to teach your dog to listen to cues from a distance rather than just right in front of you.

We introduce hand signals and some new cues for known behaviors, such as teaching them that the doorbell means to go to their mat! We also throw in some new tricks to show off!

Obedience Level 4: Ph.D. Training - Advanced Loose Leash Walking
5 week class | $225

After progressing with your dog's walking skills through the first 3 levels, we now want to take the final step towards having a dog that walks politely on leash.

We practice with advanced distractions (both for you and the dog) and learn some new skills to help you avoid any issues or obstacles you may face while walking your dog!
