Companion Dog Programs

Offered in your choice of a private or group setting, these programs provide the foundation your dog needs for success. Best suited for dogs and puppies older than 5 months of age, designed to teach you to train your dog.

Foundation work includes teaching your dog to relax by your side in all situations, to pay attention at all times, to heel (walk without pulling), to sitstanddown, and to hold a stay in all three positions, to come when called, and to place (go-to-your-spot).

Our beginner Companion Dog Programs (private or group) are specifically designed to cover the foundation in six sessions. We also offer a intermediate and advanced obedience classes to help your dog fine-tune and master specific skills.
