Sessions are for dog teams who have completed Levels I & 2, have specific goals, or simply want to glean their skills. Team enjoy training and being with their dogs. Fostering a confident relationship that is reliable under a broad range of conditions and circumstances, we combine a flow of off-leash training, sequencing, cross-training, reverse healing, switch, training games and pet assisted therapy team training practice. More challenging distractions, distance work and discrimination are carefully encourage. We have non-competitive equipment for dog sports / rewards.

This is great for therapy dog training, along with exposure to medical equipment, stability balls, and all that a dog will encounter in the real world.   

Group classes are family-focused using Awareness Centered Training - ACT by Maureen Ross and LIMA (least invasive, minimally aversive} - Association of Professional Dog Trainers.

Classes are small, no more then 8. Semi-private (2 teams) can be arranged for those who prefer. E-mail Dog Talk. Learn more at private training.  

Class is designed to teach “you” skills to easily integrate into daily living & learning with your dog(s).

Class is not appropriate for habitual, reactive behaviors that require modification (resource guarding, aggression, biting, extreme fear and stress). Please journey to Behavior Counseling.

Socialization and Manners (SAM) All Levels

Socialization and manners (SAM) are the springboard to healthy interactions dog-to-dog, and between dogs, children and society. Visit Dog Talk Media YT to view short vignettes of dogs in action or DT Media for articles on Children and Dogs. Play sessions should be short, supervised and well matched. A guided learning experience gives pups/dogs an opportunity to safely engage with others, learn self-control, and recognize/practice body language and communications skills.
