Take your obedience skills out of the classroom and up to the next level. This follow-up course to traditional intermediate or advanced classes applies what you have learned in the classroom to real life situations. Each class takes place at a different local location, including parks, trails and malls, giving us the chance to practice our skills out among real distractions. We’ll be working on loose leash walking, obedience skills, meet and greets, and what to do when things don’t go as planned.

Our local area boasts some of the most dog friendly places in the country. This course is designed to help make sure you and your dog are prepared to take advantage of that safely and with confidence. Classroom learning is an excellent tool for learning obedience skills but, as many of us can attest, the way our dogs behave can change dramatically from one situation to another. Practice in real world situations is critical to proofing a solid stay, teaching a joyous and consistent recall, and having an enjoyable and relaxing loose leash walk. That’s why on location training can be such a huge benefit. Ideal for dogs and handlers interested in becoming a Pet Therapy team, this is also a great course for anyone who has ever dreamed of taking their dog to work, to dinner, or on vacation. Come hit the trails (and parks and shopping malls) with us!


Beginning in the September class session, participants in in-person classes must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and will be required to mask and distance, and to fill out a COVID-19 Attestation before each class (we will provide the form). If you are not vaccinated, we are happy to help you with virtual classes or lessons.

Please reach out with any questions:

All dogs must be current on their vaccines and have had a recent (within 6 months) clear fecal exam.

NOTE: Aggressive dogs are not permitted in Flying Ace Puppy School group training classes. We are happy to refer you to local trainers who specialize in dogs with aggression issues.
