Training isn't just for the young.  You can teach an old dog new tricks.

Most group training consists of six 55-minute classes. A new client orientation is included for anyone starting Puppy Kindergarten and Beginning Obedience.

Class content, leadership and training equipment are all discussed at orientation. We also touch on common issues such as mouthiness, housebreaking, crate training and jumping. Come prepared with questions.

Attending orientation is important so that you have a good foundation for your first class. If you are not able to attend orientation, you must make arrangements to pick up your orientation packet before you start your first class.
