Our GROUP CLASSES include six
one-hour sessions held once each week
for the course price of
$120.00 including many extras.
We provide ONE ON ONE BEHAVIORAL COUNSELING
at no extra charge.
You can CALL at any time: day, night, weekends, etc.
Once you COMMIT to us, we are COMMITTED to YOU.
You will get HELP/INSTRUCTIONS even before your classes start.
All household members are
encouraged to participate in the training.
We teach YOU to train your dog and
get the CONTROL and RESPECT
from your dog while ENJOYING your dog.
You will be
learning "off lead verbal control" -- where the leash becomes a
FORMALITY and not a NECESSITY.

1. BASIC CLASSES (w/Graduation):
Basic classes include
graduation at the end. Dogs of all ages can be taught these AMERICAN
KENNEL CLUB (AKC) exercises: HEEL, SIT, SIT STAY, STAND, STAND STAY, DOWN,
DOWN STAY, RECALL and FINISH (and many socialization exercises). In the first
five minutes of the first Basic class, the handlers are taught how to control
their dog on a loose lead and collar.
Handlers need a properly-fitted
collar (some dogs and puppies may be able to use a regular buckle
collar or a "martingale collar"). A 6-ft leash, NOT CHAIN or
RETRACTABLE, is required in order to do all of the
exercises during the entire course.
Please bring current shot records for your dog to the first class.
Please note: Puppies must be at least 12 weeks old at the start of the
