House Dog Obedience Class

This class focuses on teaching our dogs the manners and skills essential to building a positive relationship and living day to day with our four legged companions. Class sizes are kept small for individual support and attention. In House Dog Obedience I teach you how foundation Obedience behaviors can be applied to real life day to day safety and manners training for your dog.

  • This class is designed for dogs of all ages (20 weeks and older)
  • Sessions meet weekly (unless specified) for six classes total
  • Registration for class includes access to video examples of skills taught each week for your reference!

Everything You Need To Know

    and expand on them to apply them to skills like:

    • Prevent and manage “stealing” off of counters, tables or floors
