Pre-approval for summer classes for graduates of Basic Obedience
Our group classes are great way to get started on the basics. Each class teaches age appropriate obedience, and provides help with common behaviors, socialization and manners. Get help as soon as you register with emailed homework and orientation video to cover everything you should be addressing at home, answering many training and behavior questions. Weekly homework is provided at class, and your trainer is available for questions in between classes. Class graduates receive a Certificate of Completion and their photo on our Facebook page!
