Classes

My semi-private classes are limited to no more than 6 dogs. These sessions focus on teaching basic obedience and do not typically have time to address difficult individual issues. For individual problem solving, please consider private training.

Each group class is held once a week on the same day of the week as the start date, unless otherwise noted in the class description. Prices are for the entire session. To register for a class, please contact us.
