Our Training Academy Classes

S.T.A.R. Puppy Pre-School

S.T.A.R. Puppy is a brand new program from the AKC designed to get your puppy off to a good start and on the road to becoming a Canine Good Citizen. It’s a fact that what your puppy learns during the first eight to sixteen weeks of age is going to play a major role in what kind of adult dog you will have. This hands-on course covers all the basics, including socialization, feeding, house training, basic obedience, handling, problem prevention and the keys to communicating with your new best friend! We will then put your puppy’s skills to the test.

Basic Obedience Class

In this class, we will work on basic on-leash obedience. Your dog will learn to walk nicely on-leash without pulling, to sit-stay, down-stay, come and go to their “place” on command, and to “leave it” when told to. Most importantly they will learn how to work around other dogs! For dogs ages 18 weeks to senior; no prior obedience experience is required!

Intermediate Obedience Class

Can your dog sit, down, stay, and come if a tennis ball or toy is flying by?  How about if other dogs or people are strolling by? In this class, we take the behaviors that our dogs already know to the next level, through distraction, distance and duration so our environment does not dictate whether our dogs can listen!  This is an intermediate class that requires solid basic obedience skills.

Advanced Obedience Class

Once you and your dog have completed Basic and Intermediate classes, it’s time to take your skills to the next level. You and your dog will practice high-level leave its, sit and down stays, and come over longer distances and through multiple distractions. All class attendees should come to class with a 20-25 feet lead ready for a challenge!


Are you looking for a fun activity to do with your dog that strengthens your relationship and sharpens his obedience skills? Rally is right up your alley! This class prepares you and your dog to work as a team to complete a timed and number course with up to 15 different obedience exercises. Graduates have gone on to compete in AKC and APDT Rally Trials against dogs from all around the country!

Really Reliable Recall

A solid recall is a valuable behavior for dogs of all sorts, including dogs who compete in sports, do therapy or assistance work, or provide the valuable service of being someone’s beloved companion. The better the recall, the safer your dog is when off-leash!


Therapy Dog International Prep Class

We’re excited to now offer this preparatory class, designed to help orientate your dog to the AKC Canine Good Citizen and Therapy Dog International Therapy Dog Tests. During each class session you and your dog will practice test items, including sitting politely for petting and high-level leave-its, to get as ready as ever for test day. Testing fees are included in tuition!
