Group Classes & Pricing

Thank you for your interest in our specialized dog training classes! We provide our dedicated expertise in obedience, therapy, and service dog training in fun, family-friendly, affordable group classes that are great for real-world commands and natural distractions. Whether your dog is learning obedience commands for the first time, or is in need of a refresher, classes allow for fast improvements, stronger socialization skills, and increased communication and bond between you and your dog. Classes can act as preventative measures to unwanted behaviors and tackle behavior modification needs. We use professional, safe, humane, and natural methods with the best training and handling approaches for each dog’s age, gender, personality, temperament, and motivation. We’d love to have you and your dog attend our next set of group classes!
