For dogs of any age with no prior training. In this class, your dog will learn basic obedience cues, but in the context of real-life exercise . . . sitting politely for greetings, walking nicely on leash, developing impulse control and much more.

To Be Announced
Is your dog easily distracted; unwilling to or too wound up by playing with a toy around other dogs; reactive or easily aroused, anxious, stressed, or shut down; unable to control their impulses when excited; unable to be quiet and relaxed in their crate in a class or trial environment?
If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, then you and your dog will benefit from this class! We work on building your dog’s confidence, teaching them how to relax, and asking them to replace their current behavior with different ones!
FUN AND GAMES CLASSES

Walk With Me!
In this is a 2-hour workshop we’ll teach you how to show your dog how to walk politely on leash! We’ll start working inside then take our walk outside.
Okay, how many times have you called your dog to come to you and he ran in the opposite direction? Yup, we’ve all been in that situation before! Rocket Recall is your answer to that. In this class, we’ll show you how easy it is to have your dog come to you each and every time you call! And because we teach recall using games, this class is loads of fun! Let’s face it, this is one of the most important emergency cues you and your dog will ever learn!
