Obedience Meet-Ups

Our obedience meet-ups bring dog obedience training into real-world locations with real-world distractions.

These classes build directly on the shaping, communication, and engagement skills each dog learned in the Foundation Skills Class and is designed for dogs who are clearly ready to move forward with higher expectations.

The overall goal of the dog obedience training class is to teach our dogs to live successfully in the social world that we live in and be well-behaved participants in our everyday lives.
