Group Dog Training Classes
     Our Group Training course includes 6 weekly classes over a 6-week period. Classes are typically held at the same time, on the same day each week. Group classes can be great for owners who work best on a timeline, and for some people, knowing that they've got classes scheduled each week lights a fire under their butts to do the homework!

   By virtue of being conducted in a class environment, group classes have socialization opportunities built in. This does not necessarily mean your dog will come to class and play with other dogs; socialization is a general term that in the dog training world means exposing your dog to a lot of different stimuli including other dogs and people.

   For this same reason, we like to hold classes over the period of a course in different locations; indoors at our training center, outdoors, and depending upon the students, we may take an excursion.

   Keep in mind that if your dog reacts negatively towards other dogs or people, a group course may not be the best choice when embarking upon training. That's not to say that reactive dogs are all incorrigible; we're merely stating that other training options may be more effective initially. Sometimes dogs react negatively to people, other animals, objects, situations, etc. that they're not familiar with, so if your dog has not previously been properly socialized, we wouldn't want to flood his or her senses to the point where he or she reacts fearfully or aggressively to an unfamiliar situation. It would be smarter to instead acclimate a reactive dog to training in a more appropriate environment first, then introduce him or her to a group environment later. After all, how fair would it be to subject a dog to trying to learn while it's being overwhelmed by an environment to the point of reacting negatively?

   Enroll in a group training course today. If you're not sure if Group Training is right for you, you might want to consider a Phase Training Program. Of course, you can always contact us, and we'll gladly help assess whether or not group training is a good fit for you and your dog.

Feel free to ask to see a demo and we'll show you an example of a dog who has learned to Heel, Sit, Stay, Come, etc. off-leash, in the face of distraction anywhere in the real world (not just some training area), including at a dog park with other dogs running around like maniacs!
