Weekly Workshops

This class will be held once a week and is available to dogs that have previously attended 3-4 private lessons, our seminar weekend, or one of our drop-off training programs.  Dogs with many different skill sets will be attending.  The goal of this class is to provide a professional environment for optimal training scenarios.  There will be multiple instructors available.  This class also includes “field trips” or off site training such as visits to the pet store and other various, dog friendly areas.

Trained Retrieve:

This is a very valuable exercise. In this exercise your dog will learn to retrieve items on command, no matter the item, 100% of the time. Not only is this beneficial for hunting and service dog work, but it is also great for building confidence and creating a much stronger bond with the owner. Many advanced exercises rely on this exercise as their foundation.
