am so happy that we found your class. You have a heart of gold and really care
about not just the dogs but us untrained people as well. My husband Larry was
very impressed with class last week and was able to see in action what we are
working on so he can follow suit." Denise Van Der Pol, Juneau
really happy with everything she has learned so far and I enjoy learning from
you! ...going to your class has made life much easier. I have some friends who
recently got a yellow lab pup and I highly recommended your class to them. It's
really helpful to learn how to mentally connect with the dog and cooperate with
them. I'm able to keep her healing at my side without a leash for miles! Thanks
again!" - K.S., Juneau
our classes as "Excellent", Sabrina Nelson said the greatest benefit
of our training was "that the dog listens and obeys commands."
Stickel found our class "Excellent", really liked the Flexible format
and appreciated the numerous alternative techniques we offered, to resolving issues.

is "low/no impact" work as there is no jumping, and obstacles are done

Beginning puppy/dog obedience/learning class in basic (positive) training techniques
to achieve a cooperative, healthy, happy, balanced dog, who will respond to basic
cues, alone or around other people or dogs. Appropriate dog-to-dog meeting, interactive
play and handler response is introduced. Whether your goals are for an enjoyable,
well-behaved family pet, a working dog or agility or show, getting started on
the right "paw" sets the stage for a lifetime of wonderful relationships
and activities. This course gives the handler/owner the tools to achieve this
end, and provide a safe environment to work in. This class is not for dog/people
reactive/aggressive dogs-check with us for other options.
Dogs and humans learn at different rates and in different ways. Because of our
background in many types and styles of training, we are able to provide many different
ways of approaching an issue, and personalize it as needed. The Flexible schedule
allows great opportunity for introducing other techniques and methods, as needed,
for individual dog/handler issues. Students should be prepared to practice at
home with their dog.
age: 8 weeks and older
Handler family members welcome (no additional charge.)
- Children must have separate supervisory person, other than dog handler. They must
be quiet and be able to do quiet activities (read, draw, etc.) during class.
eight classes (six group classes plus two private classes), including Quick Start
orientation class, to be completed within three months, or 12 classes (10 group plus two private) to be completed within five months, of class payment date. This flexible schedule
accommodates the needs of many students for the days when they need to be out
of town, or are unable to attend class for other reasons. Skip/miss a week or
two (or more), without penalty or loosing time or money, as would be the case
in the consecutive week format (where if you miss a class and you can never totally
make it up.)
with-dog classes are held once a week, at the Dojo, on Fridays (except certain
Holidays or as announced), from 6:00-7:00pm.
at your own pace:
of the personalized, flexible nature of the training course, your dog may be able
to enter at a higher level, or quickly move to higher levels if able to perform
the skills. If needed, they can also remain at a skill level until achieving success
at those skills, avoiding a situation of having to try skills they are not ready
for, just because that is what the instructor has to cover that particular week.
This builds a strong foundation of self-confidence, thoroughly deals with individual
challenges and does not create confusion because the dog is not ready for advancement.
Expect homework each week.
