Basics & Beyond Two Part Class Series

Basics & Beyond 2 Part Class Series

 Basics and Beyond is a unique 2 part class series designed to make training easy and fun for everyone. Broken into two six week classes, The Basics and Beyond the Basics, this series is like no other training class you have seen before. To create Basics and Beyond we took our Doggy Manners Obedience and Life Skills class, our Intermediate Group Class, our Pedestal class, and our Canine Good Citizen Prep class and rolled them all into one two part series. That’s right, you get FOUR classes in 12 weeks and will learn not only the basics skills but higher level skills as well!!!

Using proven training techniques and fun games the Basics and Beyond series 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.

The Basics and Beyond series is designed to introduce new skills while building on the skills already taught for a more natural learning experience. This also allows you to get help from a certified trainer every step of the way. Trouble with a new skill, no need to wait to get help. Excelling at a skill? Learn how to expand right away instead stalling in your training while you wait for the next class.
