*if your dog is reactive around other dogs or people, please contact me for private sessions. We can work together to prepare your dog for a class setting in the future. Forcing your reactive dog into a class setting that isn't specific to reactivity is considered "flooding" and can make the reactivity much worse. We want learning to occur in safe environments, always.

These classes/programs will be hosted by myself and Kiara with Dawgz Mobile. This way we are able to help each of you, one on one, to get the attention that you and your dog deserve.

We look very forward to meeting with you, your family and your dog.


Early Development Program - $240

We are offering an Early Development Program for puppy and adolescent dogs. This program will NOT be a typical "basic" class - we will be creating a course to help you and your young dog through everything from puppy socialization to adolescent focus and confidence building. 

This class is 6 weeks and is eligible for puppies and adolescent dogs, aged 10 weeks to one year.

Basic Puppy Class - $180

This will be a basic puppy skills class, available to puppies 10 weeks to 6 months of age.  The class is 6 weeks in length.

Bomb Proof Puppy Class - $240

This will be a class geared more towards creating well socialized, confident puppies.  We will be meeting in new environments each week.  This class is available to puppies 10 weeks to 6 months of age and is 7 weeks in length.

Manners Class - $240

This class is for dogs over 6 months of age.  We will be working on basic manners, primarily relating to focus, trust and impulse control. This class is 6 weeks in length.

Leash Reactivity/Arousal Workshop - $225

This workshop is held over a 2 day weekend, 2.5hrs each day and is for dogs of all ages. Dogs who are either leash reactive or are easily excitable and having troubles focusing, would benefit greatly from this workshop.
