Small Dog Classes

Petite Pals: Adult Basic Manners

Class Description: Class Description: Class Description: Intro Training for Small Dogs

Being small should not be an excuse for lower standards; small dogs are just as trainable as dogs of any other size. This class is for the littles: 25lb and under. Perfect for newly adopted adults and those dogs that need a refresher course that covers essential family dog skills.

Your small dog will learn essential commands like sit, down, stay, waiting calmly for food and at the door, watch me/attention, trade and leave it, coming when called, loose lead walking, and how to calmly greet strangers. A special priority in this Small Dog class is socialization, since small dogs must be extra tolerant of handling.

This class is the stepping stone from which you and your dog can move to more advanced training, sports, therapy work, and an almost unlimited range of games and titles.

Small Dog Playgroup

Class Description: Class Description: Class Description: Playgroup for Dogs Under 20 Pounds

Ready... Set... Play!

Small dogs need positive social interactions just as much as big dogs do. Playgroups help little dogs build and maintain their dog and human social skills while staying comfortable and safe. Dogs and their owners play, romp, share toys, and socialize off leash in our heated and air conditioned fully matted training room.

Playgroup is for dogs who have not demonstrated reactivity or aggression with other dogs. If you have any questions about whether your dog is suitable, talk with one of our trainers.

Every small dog playgroup is supervised by a training instructor.
