Go back to school and start off on the right paw …

First off, heading into the classroom as a dog parent means one thing: There’ll be lots of oohs and aahs as you meet your adorable canine neighbors! Meeting other dogs and dog parents leads to the development of crucial socialization skills, no matter if you’re a beginner looking to learn the basics or you’ve had lots of training. Local classes are also a fun way to spend time with your dog — think of it like going on a date; you can’t take your dog to the movies, but you can certainly spend quality time together in a fun class that’s all about him or her!

Custom Local Classes

If you and your dog love being around other dogs and dog parents but you’re unable to attend a scheduled class, then work with Joan to create a custom class! You can train with a group of friends, colleagues, your merry band of regulars at the dog park or any likeminded dog people wishing to learn together, at a convenient time and location that works for everyone.
