Puppy Classes

Puppies are super cute, super endearing, and can be super challenging! Every waking moment is filled with exploration & learning...

Our puppy classes harness that uber-cuteness & take on the challenges, giving you a sweet puppy with valuable life skills. Whether you're planning on taking your pup to champion-level dog sports, or be a well behaved pooch at a cafe or friends house, we can give you the skills to get them there.

Our classes are designed as opportunities for your puppy to have a fabulous time in a controlled, safe, environment, plus the chance for your to be armed with the latest information on how dogs learn, setting you up to have a responsive, brilliant dog!
