We offer various types of classes so you won't struggle finding the right one for you.

Group training has many benefits:

We did the hard work and created the lesson plans for you

This means you just need to follow along and watch your dog learn

You join a group of other pet owners just like you

It's nice knowing you aren't alone and can share your successes & struggles without judgement

Group classes are economical

You get the training you need at a very reasonable rate

Covers a large scope of needed behaviors

If you have a puppy or dog needing basic manners skills these classes are for you





"Jordan is fantastic. Not only is he super knowledgeable, he goes above and beyond to help you and your dog. Whether it be in a group or individual lessons, you will not be disappointed."

Building on to what you learned in the Introductory class, we ask more from your dog by adding the 3 D's (duration, distance, and distractions) to their training and begin to work on more complex behaviors such as "place", "stay", and heel walking. This class sets you and your dog up for success in diverse environments and prepares you for more situations you may encounter on a daily basis.

Prerequisite: Introductory Obedience or equivalent through DTA.



Peeping Dog

$199 - 6 weeks - 5 spots per class

Master manners and confidence by completing the Advanced Obedience Class! In this class you will continue to add the 3 D's (duration, distance, distractions) to each cue and learn new cues/behaviors in the process. If your dog is a member of the family and frequently goes on family outings or if you simply want a really well trained dog, this class is for you. CGC (Canine Good Citizen) testing is an option after this class as well! 
Prerequisite: Intermediate Obedience or equivalent through DTA.
