Group classes are currently being taught at Delightful Dog Professional Play Care for Dogs. https://www.delightful-dog.com/ It is beautiful 25,000 square foot facility with a large training space.

We offer puppy classes as well as basic obedience Fundamentals Level One. Classes are taught on Sunday afternoon. Fundamentals Two  or more advanced obedience will be offered in late fall. 

  • Puppy Classes-This class includes socialization time at the end of each class. The first class is without dogs where we will cover house training, husbandry issues and other issues that concern you with your new puppies. Class time will include beginning basic behaviors of sit, down, come, leash walking, leave it and drop it. The cost is $175 for six weeks.
  • Puppy class is for dogs 10 weeks to 5 months. Puppies must have been in their home for 2 weeks and have at least one set of vaccinations. If your puppy will be turning 5 months while in class that is generally ok. But you will need to talk with us before signing up.
  • Fundamentals One-This class is for dogs 5 months and over. This is a six week class. The first class is without dogs and the cost is $175. This class is meant for dogs that have not had any obedience training or for dogs that need a refresher on the basics. Included in this class is sit, come, leave it, wait and stay, leash walking, come, jumping up and more. Dogs need to understand and be taught impulse control. Creating structure and boundaries helps them develop impulse control. This will make your life and your relationship with your dog better.  Your dog must be “engaged” with you for training to be successful and a bond to develop. We will help you develop this special relationship.
