Basics & Beyond

Basics & Beyond

Basics and Beyond is a unique 3 in 1 obedience group class designed to make training easy and fun for everyone. To create Basics and Beyond we took our Doggy Manners Obedience and Life Skills class, our Intermediate Group Class, and our Canine Good Citizen Prep class and rolled them all into one. That’s right, you get THREE classes in one and will learn not only the basics skills but higher level skills as well!!!

Using proven training techniques and fun games Basics and Beyond will get you and your dog on the right training path for a lifetime of success. We focus on getting the skills down while also improving the bond between owner and dog.

Basics and Beyond meets twice a week for 12 sessions total. This allows you to get help from a trainer every step of the way. Trouble with a new skill, no need to wait a full week to get help. Excelling at a skill? Learn how to expand right away instead stalling in your training while you wait for the next session.

This class also offers options for AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy and Canine Good Citizen testing. You do not need to be registered with AKC to complete these tests.
