Dog Training Workshops

Our favorite way to train by far! Workshops are much longer sessions that allow us to cover more topics in great detail, offer demonstrations with dogs of all ages and backgrounds as well as provide a comprehensive and fun way to train your dog without having to commit to weekly scheduled training! We teach behavioral exercises to practice with your dogs and then proof them by making exciting games and competitions out of them. Training your dog has never been so much fun!  

ATTN: There are no workshops on the calendar at this time but more will be added soon! If you're interested in getting updates as soon as our workshops become available, please enter your email address in the form below to be notified. No worries, we will never share your email or send spam. You will only be contacted as workshops become available.  

Our Workshops:

Remarkable Recall
 
Off-Leash Skills

Please note, in this workshop, we will be letting every dog off-leash. If your dog is not friendly, confident, and sociable, please do not sign up for this workshop. It would be unfair to your dog and others in attendance. Be advised that any dog who shows signs of too much stress, fear, or reactivity will be asked to leave the workshop for the sake of their wellbeing.  Dogs of all ages are welcome. MUST provide proof of up to date puppy vaccines/rabies & bordetella form your vet.  

Workshop fee: $275
