Our New Classes:

Doggie Dance Class

New Classes forming now for this fun and exciting sport. It is just basic obedience moves choreographed to music .The moves are taught using both shaping and luring.  The object is for the dog and handler to interpret the music in an athletic and artistic way. Each routine will demonstrate the joys and fun of bonding with your canine partner through motion and music.

Tricks Class, Next Session starts soon from 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

WHAT MAKES THIS CLASS UNIQUE? It’s a self-paced class. Pick from a menu of tricks. It’s a (4) week class. Work WITH a dog or WITHOUT. Great for those dogs that aren’t ready for the class setting, but love to learn at home. Positive training methods (like all our classes). Learn to shape, capture and target behaviors. Build better communication with your furry friend. Have loads of fun while enhancing your relationship.
