Classes

Classes are a great option for training your dog.  Whether you are looking for a lower cost option with still huge impact, live outside of our service area, or are looking for something where you can learn at your own pace. It seems strange to think about how you would work with your dog using the computer and without the trainer being there, but it can be such a great resource!

Our classes give you the opportunity to work at a "self-study" pace with your dog at a very affordable level and allow you to really focus on working with your dog on the skills you really want to improve. You also get the opportunity to maintain access to incredible resources for longer than the class length so that you can really take your time to complete everything!

All of our classes also include opportunities to interact with our trainers and get their feedback on your training! Not only do you get to make progress at your own pace, train in the comfort of your own home (and your PJ's if you wish!), but you still get guidance and feedback from our amazing trainers! It's the best of both worlds.

Get all of the details on all of the options below!

The Amazing Hound

Feeling a little cooped up with your dog? Not sure how to keep them entertained and away from chewing on your walls? Have a dog that's a little too smart for their own good? Enjoy putting on shows with your dog and showing off all their cool skills? If you answered yes to any of these, this may be just the class for you!

The Amazing Hound is a tricks class split into two levels.  Tricks are a great way of working your dogs brain, especially in a small space, and you can even earn titles for your dog! You can earn trick titles through Do More With Your Dog or the AKC.  In Level One we will spend time going over a lot of foundation skills for trick training and teaching 8 of the tricks on the Novice Trick Dog list for the AKC. In Level Two we will take things to the next level and learn some more complex training concepts as well as 6 more tricks on the Novice Trick Dog list. If you complete both levels you will be able to submit a video to get your dogs NTD title!

For each Level you will get access to the forum for four months (two months longer than the length of the class).

The Savvy Hound

Not sure where to start on your dogs training journey? Feeling like you might need to go back to the beginning to fix some things? This is the class for you!

 

The Savvy Hound is our "Basic Obedience" class. It is also so much more than that. We like to refer to this class as a deep dive into Basic Obedience. Of course the main focus of this class is to teach your dog the basics: Sit, Down, Stay, Leave It, Loose Leash Walking, Coming When Called, and Touch. It's other focus though is teaching you all about dog training, and making sure that we have complete, long lasting behaviors taught to our dogs.

 

In this class we will spend time making sure that you understand the difference between capturing a behavior and luring it, and when to use each. You will know how to fade your lure effectively, and transition a skill to a verbal cue only. You will have the foundation of knowledge to begin to teach your dog off leash skills as well, and how to easily fit training into your daily life. Our deep dive is all about teaching you to concepts to be able to finish this class, and then head to the next level!
