Online Learning
Train Anywhere, Anytime

Online Classes

Benefits to Online Classes:

  • Train at your own pace, any day of the week 

  • Group class times don't work for your schedule 

  • Dog does not do well in group settings (extremely fearful, aggressive, reactive, etc.) 

  • Train from any location 

  • You learn best by being able to rewatch demonstrations as you practice 

  • Everyone in the family receives the same information, so everyone can be consistent! 

Our opinion: We think the best option for most people is to do both In-Person Group Classes and the Corresponding Online Group Class.

Benefits to Online & In-Person Classes:

  • Get a jump start on teaching the skills before your in-person group class starts. This helps set your dog up for even more success during the in-person class as you are not teaching a brand new skill with distractions, but rather adding distractions to known skills and sets you up for success by allowing you to absorb & digest more of the information! 

  • Your dog learns to focus through the distractions of a class environment, and you learn proper mechanics that are easier taught in-person. 

  • If you are absent from an in-person class due to work, or life is just too busy, you still have access to descriptive how-to's and videos to show you how to teach that week's skills.

  • How do I make a reservation?
    You may email with specific dates to see if we are available, or you can fill out a board & train application by clicking on the Register Now! button from the Board & Train page. When you click on that button, it will forward you to our software Paw Partner. Here, you will need to login to your account, or create an account for you and your dog if you are a new client. Once logged in, you will want to make a Reservation -> Boarding -> fill out all the required information until you have checked out with the non-refundable* deposit to reserve your spot. *You will be notified and your deposit WILL be refunded if we do not have availability to accept your board & train date range.
  • Can I bring extra belongings?
    No. We do not allow extra belongings during your dog's boarding stay to ensure the health, cleanliness and safety throughout your dogs stay. If you bring additional belongings, you will be sent home with them.
  • What vaccinations do you require?
    For Puppies 16 weeks and younger we require: -Bordetella (Kennel Cough) -2nd series of Distemper (DHPP) For Dogs older than 16 weeks, we require: -Bordetella (Kennel Cough) -Distemper -Rabies We agree with, and accept limited vaccination protocols as long as titer testing is done to prove immunity. In addition, boarding dogs are required to be up to date on flea/tick medication and heartworm medication.
  • Is there a multi-dog discount?
    Unfortunately, due to the limited availability with dogs going to trainer's personal homes overnight, we do not have any multi-dog discounts at this time.
  • Do you train aggressive dogs?
    Yes, and no. It depends on what service you are looking for and what outcome you are seeking. Most aggressive or reactive dogs are referred to one of our Reactive Remedy Private Lesson Packages. These are 3 or 5 week programs to learn how to manage and reduce the reactivity or aggression seen, and to create a more neutral dog at the SIGHT of another dog or person. It is not to make your dog friendly to other people or dogs, as we cannot guarantee that. True aggression, is almost always caused from genetics, which we cannot change. We do not accept human aggressive dogs into our programs other than private lessons, for the safety of our staff. We do accept dog-dog reactive and aggressive dogs into some of our programs on a case by case basis. Most often, dog reactive dogs do not display the behaviors when the pet parent is not present, so Private Lessons are our recommendation to reduce the behavior.
  • What type of trainer are you? What methods do you use?
    We are a balanced training facility. We do not adhere to one specific ideology. We know dogs are all indivuals and that there is no one-size-fits-all to training. Instead, we continually grow our knowledge base and understanding of a variety of techniques so we can tailor the training to your specific needs and your specific dog. When laying foundations, we rely heavily on positive reinforcement. In fact, the vast majority of our training is done with positive reinforcement. However, we do not limit ourselves to one set of tools and use the full learning paradigm to train dogs. We may use food, treats, toys, prong collars, electronic collars, and anything else that a dog may find motivating. The most important aspect of integrating various tools into training is remaining fair and consistent. We believe in clear communication. We find that motivating dogs by rewarding them for behaviors we want and providing consequences for those we don’t want provides the clearest form of communication. Consequences and rewards are relevant to the dog, of course, so our methods vary with each dog. Our goal is to teach the humans, but also train the dogs in a way that is as clear, fair and enjoyable as possible.
