Set yourself up for success by starting out with a minimum of distraction.

Many people think they need to be together with other dogs in a classroom to socialize their dog.  But the best way to improve a dog's social skills is to expose them to challenges gradually, in a setting where they can experience calm feelings.


It’s most effective (and pleasant) to teach foundation skills without the distraction and frustration of dogs barking and wanting to meet one another. 


We will guide you in how to provide social experiences and distractions in a gradual way that is less stressful for everyone and promotes better learning.

Meanwhile your dog will learn to behave around common challenges in the place you need manners most: your own home.

In our online group class you will enjoy individual coaching and also learn from watching your classmates train.

Course fee $119.99
