Pet Dog Training
Designed to help people train a well-behaved pet dog and/or resolve minor behavior concerns such as pulling on leash, jumping up on people, barking when someone comes near, etc. We also help with basic obedience skills - sit, down, stay, and come when called.
We offer both private lessons and group classes.
Private Lessons - each lesson is up to one hour and costs $50*. There is no multi-week commitment.
'Drop-In' Group Classes - each class is one hour and costs $20*. Attend one or as many classes as needed to meet your goals. There is no multi-week commitment. No advance reservations required.
