Group Dog Training Classes

Our group classes are small. We typically limit them to no more than six to eight dogs per class (depending on class) so that you and your dog get the assistance you deserve. We make training fun so lessons are easy to learn and practice. In our classes you will learn:

  • How to teach your dog desirable behaviors and prevent bad habits from forming
  • How to deal with common behavior problems
  • How to gain and keep your dog’s attention
  • How to teach your dog to practice impulse control
  • How to train your dog to do basic obedience behaviors (sit, down, stay, come, loose leash walking, leave it, watch me), and more!
  • How to use recommended equipment properly and safely
  • How to be your dog’s best teacher, leader, and friend!

Our Chico CA dog training classes include:

  • Personal attention to you and your dog due to our small class size
  • Selected equipment including treat bag, clicker, wrist band, and long line
  • Extensive training handouts filled with helpful information and designed to guide you through your program
  • Personal “fittings” and proper use lessons for other recommended equipment such as specialized harnesses, collars, head halters, and leashes
  • Graduation certificates and photos
  • Socialization opportunities – with dogs and people
  • Training in our safe, comfortable indoor center and secure outdoor environment
  • Opportunities to continue your training through continuing ed classes and clinics
