Step two
Register for Orientation

Think of our Orientation as “Dog Training 101.”

You’ll learn how we train dogs positively, what to bring to class, how to read your dog’s body language, and more! This class is offered every 4-7 days, so you can start training your dog ASAP.

Step three
Enroll in classes

Get started with core manners classes.

Read our COVID-19 Flex Class Guidelines before registering for classes.

Once you’ve attended Orientation, take our 4 core manners classes in any order. They’re designed to be repeated until you & your dog have mastered those skills. Then, jump in to our advanced manners classes AND classes on fun activities like agility and trick training! They’re all included in your Flex Pass.

What Our Students Say

“Class sizes are smaller than other places I have been, allowing for a less chaotic environment but still plenty of socialization and time for one on one guidance.”

Chelsie & Rhodie

“You will be successful, and you won’t be standing around bored because something is too easy for you.”

Meghan & Jenny

“Because the classes are kept super small, there’s always lots of helpful one-on-one time, with the opportunity to ask questions or get assistance with a particular exercise.”

Emi & Wilson

“The trainers help owners work on small, incremental training methods with your puppy to get big results. They make training approachable and fun!”

Katie & Zeke

Class Policies & FAQs

Your safety, and the safety of our team members, is our top priority. Please read our COVID-19 Flex Class Guidelines for details on what changes we’ve made and what policies are in place for classes.

Dogs participating in Flex Classes must be friendly or neutral toward unfamiliar dogs and people. If your dog lunges, barks, and/or growls at other dogs, check out our Reactive Recovery linear class – it is specifically designed for dogs that behave this way. If your dog shows aggression toward you or other people, contact us for a referral to a professional who can help you one-on-one.

Dogs who are disruptive during class will be managed with visual barriers or asked to leave, and there are no refunds if your dog’s behavior is inappropriate for class. If you are at all concerned about your dog’s suitability for group classes, please contact us before enrolling.

Your dog is limited to attending one class per day. If you have multiple dogs, you can attend back-to-back classes with one dog in each class.

Yes. All students, regardless of their background, must attend Orientation first – even professional dog trainers! Orientation covers ground rules for class, what to expect in each Flex Class, the basics of our system of dog training, and how to practice some of the most important exercises.

If you have previously attended our Reactive Recovery classes and are transitioning to Flex Classes, you do not need to attend Orientation – the content is covered in Week 1 of Reactive Recovery.

If you are in any other program – Puppy Day School, Intensive Training Programs, private lessons, etc. – you must attend Orientation before coming to any other classes.

Anyone handling a dog in class must attend an Orientation class first. Our classes are fast-paced and all handlers must be on the same page before joining us. If your friend, housemate, significant other, pet sitter, uncle’s cousin’s wife, etc. has attended Orientation with us, they may bring your dog to class.

We keep our class sizes small so you get plenty of one-on-one attention from your instructor. With the exception of Orientation, our Flex Classes are capped at 6 dogs per class. Some of our classes with more space requirements, such as Come This Way and Recall Mastery, only take 4-5 dogs per class.

Most classes take place in our training hall, which is over 3100 square feet – plenty of room for social distancing! When classes are scheduled to take place elsewhere in the facility, class sizes are further limited.

Yes. They must wear britches at all times during class.

Current clients are more than welcome to “audit” any class in our program without their dog. In fact, many owners report that they learn better and retain more information without their dog present!

Yes! AKC STAR Puppy testing is included free with our two larger Flex Class Passes (STAR Puppy & Canine Good Citizen). Your puppy is eligible to take the AKC STAR Puppy test after attending six manners classes with you. (Orientation & sports classes do not count toward this six class requirement.)

We offer AKC Canine Good Citizen testing approximately quarterly. Testing is included free in the Canine Good Citizen Flex Class Pass, but our tests are open to the general public. These tests are posted on our class calendar.

In order to keep our class sizes small, we limit the number of active class passes at any given time. Expiration dates will only be extended if your dog is sick or injured, and you provide a note from your veterinarian (on letterhead) with a specific range of dates that your dog is unable to attend classes.

We understand that life can get in the way of dog training sometimes, but to keep things fair for all of our students, this is the only circumstance under which we will extend an Class Pass expiration date.
