Summer “Focus on…” series


Introducing our new summer “Focus on…” classes! These three week classes will focus on specific training elements, going in-depth on each topic. There will be three sessions, June, July and August. Take one, two or all three! Classes are suitable for all ages and skill levels with the exception of Focus on Socialization (Puppies only), Focus on Out and About (Intermediate and higher level dogs only) and Focus on Advanced Skills (Intermediate and higher level dogs only).

Class list:


Focus on Leash–This class will spend three weeks improving your leash skills, helping you and your dog achieve a loose leash walk.

Focus on Recall–“Come!” One of the most useful and most frustrating commands in dog training. This class will spend three weeks just focused on teaching and improving this important skill.

Focus on Greetings–Polite greetings in public, managing other people’s interaction with your dog, helping your dog remain calm in exciting situations, and learning calm door greetings–all of these will be covered in this three week greetings class.

Focus on Basic Skills–Sit, Down and Wait are often considered the foundational skills in dog training. This three week class will focus on not just teaching them, but on growing them into useful, functional skills that your dog understands anywhere, anytime (even without food!).

Focus on Tricks–Learning tricks means learning the way your dog learns. In this three week class you and your dog will have fun learning a variety of new tricks while increasing your bond and understanding of each other.

Focus on Socialization–Specifically for puppies, this three week class will introduce sights, sounds and experiences to your puppy in a safe way, while covering some of the important puppy skills, such as handling and self control.

Focus on Out and About–Our popular Out and About class in a three week version! Suitable for intermediate and higher level dogs.

Focus on Advanced Skills–A three week version of our Advanced Skills Challenge, designed to push you and your dog to test your skills in new ways.
