Group Obedience Classes

Building the foundation starts here!

Group obedience classes help provide you and your dog with a quality education, in a fun, safe and controlled environment at an affordable price. I offer a variety of classes to suit your needs. Whether a new puppy or an adult dog, there is a class for everyone! Classes are updated on a regular basis so if you don't happen to see a class date that works for you, check back at a later date to see future classes, or email me to ask to be put on a wait list. Aside from the standard 6 week classes, from time to time I will also be offering specialty classes which are either a 4 week program or a 1 day special workshop.

Want to learn about science-based dog training while having a good time and meeting like-minded people? If your answer is yes, then you should consider attending one of my group classes today!
