Join us for Confidence Class, a fun 6-week training series designed to help boost your dog's confidence and socialization skills, as well as your confidence as a handler. Each class is 1-hr and the classes are consecutive.
If your dog is uncomfortable with new people, places, objects, and/or noises, this is how you can start to help your dog blossom and become less fearful as well is will help you ensure you're communicating effectively!
Any dog can benefit from learning new skills and achieving new goals!

Please note, as we are concerned about the health and well-being of all dogs both before your class and after, we require the following:
-Evidence of current vaccines DHPP, Rabies and Bordetella (pref not more than 6 mo since administration)
-Negative fecal exam which includes the usual fecal float as well as the giardia antigen test (which most vets won't do). We can run the fecal exam at our Studio for $45 and we encourage this option since is cheaper and far more convenient for everyone ;)
These are our requirements for daycare dogs as well- therefore any dog in our building upholds the same strict standards.
Between the above and being altered by 6mo of age, your dog would be eligible for daycare with us too- something we highly encourage for shy and fearful dogs needing more confidence.
