Obedience Training

Follow a methodical, step-by-step program to teach your dog trained skills and address behavior problems. Our obedience classes are unique in that they follow a systematic curriculum that is simple to follow, while allowing for flexibility to fine tune training to each individual dog. These classes also work to address a wide range of behavioral concerns ranging from mild (such as jumping, and nuisance barking) to severe (such as anxiety, fearfulness, and aggression).

In addition to in-person training, each client benefits from a variety of additional resources:

  • Online written and video training guides

  • Step-by-step, day-by-day training instructions so you always know exactly what to do

  • Online coaching and access to your trainer between in-person lessons

Homework commitments are significant but the results are more than worth it! Completion of our Foundation obedience group class is required for most of our elective courses. All of our obedience curriculum is also available in private lesson format.
