The group class environment adds an important dimension to your dog’s socialization skills as he/she learns self-control and focus in the presence of other dogs and people.  All Group Classes and Clinics are held at our indoor, climate-controlled facility in Hamburg (see Directions) unless otherwise indicated.  Groups are small and intimate, allowing us to give you and your dog the attention you deserve.   See FAQs for more information.  Please register early to ensure a spot in our group classes!

BASIC II – IMPULSE CONTROL

Now that your dog has some basic skills, we add duration, distractions and distance, change contexts and raise the bar on what we learned in Basic 1 to build even greater focus, impulse control and reliability. More polite greeting exercises, formal stays, “Wait” (at doorways, curbs, stairs), “Stand” (to wipe paws, trim nails, etc.) and “Go to Mat” are introduced.

Prerequisite: Basic I – Family Manners or Equivalent

BASIC III – APPLIED MANNERS

This course emphasizes situational awareness and decision-making and sets up challenging scenarios for you and your dog to work thru. We apply increased distance and distractions to what you learned so far and add new exercises such as Out of the Kitchen, Boundary Ropes, Table Manners, Door Etiquette, Guests at the Door, Meeting another Dog Team and Stand for Grooming/Exam.
