The first class is an orientation WITHOUT your dog. We use this first hour of class to discuss how to set your dog up for success at home and address any issues that you may be experiencing. We also discuss the class structure, expectations and our training philosophy.


If your dog gets very worked up when seeing another dog while ON LEASH: barking, growling, lunging (even if they just want to play) every time they see a dog when you are out on walks, Basic class is not for you. Instead, please check out our Peace Walks class HERELeash reactivity is a common problem that requires it’s own special class. Dogs who react in this way would not be comfortable, or capable of learning, in our other group classes as the presence of the other dogs in class would be quite overwhelming. Peace Walks and our other Classes For Reactive Dogs are set up differently. If you have questions about whether or not your dog might be considered reactive, please don’t hesitate to call or email us.
