Training Classes

Overview

Dog Training Classes

We offer a full schedule of training classes for dogs and puppies.

Start with Family Dog or Puppy Kindergarten, depending on your dog’s age! Family Dog classes are for dogs over 16 weeks old, and Puppy Kindergarten is for younger pups. After that, attend single-topic workshops to advance your dog’s skills.  You’ll find the details below.  Please read Class Policies before signing up.

Family Dog and Puppy Kindergarten classes start with an orientation that is for people only: dogs stay at home. Workshops are for dogs and people who’ve completed Family Dog 1 to attend together.

Family Dog Workshops

For graduates of Family Dog 1 or Family Dog 1 Small

After Family Dog 1: Single-topic workshops are designed to let Family Dog graduates come back and build on what they’ve already started, helping your dog to add new skills and develop existing ones. Small groups allow dogs at different levels to work in the same class, so you can concentrate on what’s important to you and repeat topics if you like. One 45-minute session.
