Don't wait for bad habits to develop -- prevent them now! Our small group classes and private sessions teach you and your dog to cope when out on a walk or when guests arrive at your home, and even as therapy dogs or at agility, obedience, rally and dog show competitions. 

PuppyLove is for pups 8-18 weeks old on the first day of class. Early socialization in a safe, well-run puppy program can actually increase neural pathways in the brain for pups that start when they first come to their new homes at ages 8 and 16 weeks. 

Basic Manners is for adolescent and adult dogs. Start today to fix any bad habits that have already snuck in there, and to prevent future problems.
