Pawsitively Mannered

Sometimes, it's just fun to learn alongside other dog lovers! If your pooch feels safe and comfortable around his fellow canines and you're into laughing over their antics, getting a roomful of problem-solving ideas and treading a bit lighter on the ol' budget, this is a great option.

So much to learn, so little time! Mini Classes are a fun, focused way to fit quality training time into your busy schedule. You’ll get your paws a little dirtier learning the specific training techniques you want to practice most without the time commitment of a full-length class series. In each session, you’ll learn what Fido is thinking, get expert tips on how to “talk” in a way he’ll understand, and enjoy just the right amount of practice time. Each Mini Class is one to three sessions, and each session is 45-60 minutes.
