Dogs don’t live in training rings in Big Box stores. They live in real homes. This class teaches a solid set of obedience skills where they are needed most: either in your home, or in our home-based environment. Your dog needs to work with real life challenges he will face at home like ringing doorbells, tempting countertops, visitors entering, and passing a squirrel in a tree on a walk outside.
You can choose what fits your life and budget best: Private sessions (in your home, or at our location); semi-private classes; OR if you’d like a professional to do the heavy lifting for you, take advantage of our 2- or 4-Week Board & Train programs. We even have a Pup Start Board & Train program just for puppies!
This class, taught by Dan Grant, fosters teamwork, attention and focus, polite public appearances, good communication and strong self-control.
The curriculum includes:
- sit, down, stay
- coming when called
- door greetings
- loose leash walking
- “leave it”
- learning to self-calm
Pricing and Details
- $375 in your home or $275 at my location.

Private Instruction Auditing:
- $80/hr in your home or $60/hr at my location.
- Single obedience sessions to brush up on skills or cover just a few behaviors, designed for those who are unsure if their dog needs a whole package.
Semi Private Class:
- $180 at my location. Saturday mornings 10:30am-11:30am and 11:45am – 12:45pm.
