Calm, positive training that holds the dogs attention and makes them want to work. Not all dogs are the same and we find a reward that the dogs like to use as positive reinforcement. Treats, toys, pats, and play time are used as rewards for correct commands, good behavior, and steady improvements. Each dog will learn that working well equals rewards and fun! Making learning quick, easy, and enjoyable.
WHAT DO I NEED FOR GROUP LESSONS?
You will need to bring treats, collar, leash, and potty bags. We also encourage a toy that can be used as a reward. You will need to provide proof of vaccinations on your first lesson. Talk to your vet about getting this paperwork and vaccinates updated.
HOW OLD DOES MY DOG HAVE TO BE TO ENTER TRAINING?
All ages welcome! There is no such thing as a dog too old. Your young puppy has to be vaccinated for Rabies (this is usually between 3-4 months old).
WHAT REQUIREMENTS DOES MY DOG HAVE TO HAVE TO BE PART OF THE PROGRAM?
Aggressive dogs in ANY way (food, people, other dogs, toys) are NOT allowed in group lessons. Please see our Private Lesson program to work through these issues.

As thorough of a history background as we can have for your dogs will help us understand their way of learning quicker
