With over 20 years of experience, Justin brings a wealth of knowledge to his training sessions. He has managed canine facilities across the country, specialized in behavior evaluations for animal shelters and rescue groups, mold detection scent work, and obedience and behavior training for all levels and needs. Justin will tailor training to your needs and to your dog's breed. Not only will you learn the skills, you will also learn the behavior characteristic specific to your dog's breed, a crucial component to understanding and correcting dog behavior.
All group class sizes are kept small to maximize the group experience and one-on-one instruction. If you have taken a class elsewhere, but are interested in joining one of our groups, Justin can help you select the one most appropriate for your dog's skills.

Basic Obedience: Six week course for $150 (plus tax)*
This class will focus on basic level obedience skills - "watch" or focus, sit, stay, down, heeling on leash, come when called, and any other problematic behaviors (i.e. barking, jumping, etc). Note there are different class times offered, please indicate your preference when inquiring about enrollment.
We will upate our website once we know when we can resume classes
**The next Basic Obedience class sessions will be held on (Choose one option):
Sundays from 9:30am-10:30am beginning (TBD)-This class time is FULL
Sundays from 12pm-1pm beginning (TBD)- This class time is FULL
Sundays from 1:15pm-2:15pm beginning (TBD)- This class time if FULL
Mondays from 6:15pm-7:15pm beginning (TBD)- This class time is FULL
Intermediate/Advanced Obedience: Six week course for $150 (plus tax)*
This class will focus on refining the Basic Obedience skills by working through the Canine Good Citizen skill requirements. Examples of this are being able to calmly greet new people and dogs, walking through a crowd in a polite manner, remaining calm in new situations, and practicing the basic skills (sit, stay, heeling on leash) with increasingly difficult distractions. This course will help prepare you and your dog if you choose to pursue the Canine Good Citizen certification, however, this does not need to be your goal to take this course. This is an excellent (and fun!) way to help your dog develop good manners that are useful in all settings. *Please note: the Advanced level is reserved for those who have previously attended our Intermediate class session*
**The next Intermediate Obedience class sessions will be held on (choose one option):
Intermediate: Sundays from 10:45am-11:45am beginning (TBD)
Advanced: Due to the number of participants enrolling in Basic obedience, we have to place the Advanced level class on hold for the March sessions
*Payment is due by the first group class, and is non-refundable. We do not offer partial payments; if you need to miss a session then we will be happy to email you the course content for that day. We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes.
