Puppy Tricks

This is a fun and empowering class for both you and your dog – it’s  not your typical training class.
Our workshop doesn’t focus on having perfect obedience,  it’s about enjoying fun the moments with your puppy. By taking part in this workshop your puppy will learn fun tricks, that you can show off to your friends and family and you will form a closer relationship with your dog along the way.
This is an indoor course with individual attention so you and your puppy can  move at your own pace-  no experience needed !  
You will learn how to break down complicated tricks into specific parts, and how to put individual pieces together to complete a trick. Once you understand how to train tricks, the possibilities are endless as to what you can teach your dog.
Some of the tricks you will learn include
·         High-five, Paw/ Shake
·         Spinning
·         Touch
·         Leg weaves
·         Roll over
and much more!

Rescue Dogs

Have you just rescued your new best friend? Or thinking of adopting? Many rescues can come from troubled backgrounds so we are here to help. We want to help prepare you on having a new pet in your home.

New Baby Old Dog

For most dogs, a new baby means a major life change. But training and preparing for baby’s arrival can prevent parents from having to choose between canine and child. We will tell you what your dog needs to learn in order to accept their new lifestyle, keep your baby safe, and keep chaos away! We will also help you understand the best way to introduce your dog to your newborn, and how to help them bond for a lifelong relationship.

Doggy Do’s & Dont’s for Kids

We want to teach children how to interact nicely with the family pet new or old in a language they will understand.
