Classes

All Classes are Open to the General Public

Everyone is welcome with dogs of any age or breed, or combination of breeds. All of our classes are taught by club members who volunteer their time and talents to help train others to train their dogs. We believe in positive reinforcement for an enjoyable training experience for both dog and handler. We teach everything from Puppy Kindergarten for a well behaved puppy, advanced Obedience and Rally classes for competition, trick and dance classes and much more. Our Puppy and Beginners classes are popular with pet owners who are looking for a well behaved companion in the home and on the street. Instructors strive to meet the goals of each handler, whether they want a well socialized pet or a top competition Obedience or Conformation show dog.
