Group Training Classes

Training is something we do with our dogs, not to them.

Attending a Two Dads and a Dog group class provides your dog with valuable social skills.

Once you register for our group classes, we encourage you to contact us at any time during the 5-week session with questions or concerns. We feel it is important for you to address dog-training issues as they occur rather than having to wait until your next class for help.

Puppy Classes

 

Your puppy is like a sponge – totally resilient, eager to learn, soaking up everything he can about life and the world around him. Now is the time to encourage new experiences, to teach him what you want him to do, to establish trust in you and confidence in himself.

Puppy Manners - Part 1

Our 5-week interactive puppy class focuses on helping you learn about proper socialization techniques for your puppy as well as teaching basic good manners such as Polite Greeting, Sit, Down and Come, and real life skills such as Drop It and Leave It. Our goal is to set your puppy up to be a well-mannered, confident, adult dog.

$125 – 5-WEEK COURSE, includes 5 one-hour training sessions

Puppy Playtime

Are you unsure of what good puppy play looks like? 

It’s so important to make sure our young puppies build confidence through appropriate socialization and experiences. Puppy Playtime sessions provide an opportunity for your puppy to have short and positive interactions with other puppies, people, new surfaces, sights, sounds and smells. 

These are stand alone sessions, rather than a course, and so you can attend as many as you wish. Numbers are strictly limited and booking is essential. Puppies must be vaccinated to attend.

$25 – session

Puppy Manners - Part 2

This course is for puppies that have completed our Puppy Manners One or similar course and know the basics such as sit, down, stay, and come. It is designed for puppies that are ready to work the basics in much harder situations. 

 

$125 – 5 WEEK COURSE, includes 5 one-hour training sessions

Adult Dogs

We have developed courses and workshops for dogs with little to no training or for those wanting to learn how to train their dog using positive reinforcement. This course is designed to teach your dog basic household manners; help you determine what motivates your dog and how to use that to quickly and effectively train the behaviors you want; teach problem solving for both you and your dog; build reliability around distractions such as other dogs, people, and noises; and  manage common issues such as barking and jumping.

Basic Manners

Your dog will learn behaviors such as sit, down, stay, come, watch, wait at doors, greet people nicely, leave forbidden items, walk on a loose leash, and drop items when asked. The goal is to have a well-mannered dog at home and when out in public.

$125 – 5 WEEK COURSE, includes 5 one-hour training sessions

Workshops

 

Our workshops are designed to help dog owners and their dogs address important behaviors that are sometimes more challenging  in nature due to the unintended reinforcement of unwanted habits.
