Group Classes

These are classes for dogs who are friendly, social, and quiet.  Classes are kept small at a maximum of 6 students for the best learning environment and student to instructor ratio.  In our Basic Foundation Skills Class, students learn sit, down, come, stay, loose leash walking, touch, and moDOG-ABILITIES-BCAS-JUNE grad1re.  In our puppy class, we emphasize socialization, off leash play, and basic manners to prevent problem behaviors.  All of our classes are structured around games, real life situations, and mostly importantly, to be fun.

Board and Trains (limited basis)

Your dog stays with us for a minimum of 2 weeks.  Single problem behaviors can be worked on as well as general obedience behaviors. Dogs must get along with other dogs, be crate trained ( can go in on cue, relax, and are quiet), and not have a high predatory instinct.
