Which service is best for you?

Our Group Classes give you the socialization and distractions that your dog needs to reliably listen to you, so they come when called, walks nicely on the leash, etc.

Our Private Lessons at your home are beneficial for immediate results or behavior issues that cannot be handled in a classroom environment.

Our K9 Training School will give you the relief you need, and save you time and frustration.

Home Manners Classes

(3 mos and above—for younger pups, consider a Private Lesson to get going on the right paw!)


Starting with Home Manners, you can establish your dog’s house and neighborhood manners. You will build the basic foundation before moving forward to Community Manners.

Included in your class is our seminar called ‘How to Have a Well-Mannered Dog’. We offer it monthly for our class clients. We also have class commands and behavior handouts as a reference during your training classes.

The skills you will learn to use through leadership will help you communicate easily with your dog so s/he will listen to you for everything. Learning commands, such as Sit, Down, Wait, Off, Settle, and Come will teach you to build your dogs self-control and also focus on your expectations. We will show you that walking with your dog in a polite manner can be a healthier bonding experience. Learning correct behavior makes it easier for your dog to understand not to jump on people, bark at other dogs and people, politely greet people and their dogs, not destroy anything in your home, and nip at people. Our goal is for you to have a happier and more fulfilling relationship with your dog by communicating with your dog in a way that s/he understands.

Community Manners Classes

(Prerequisite: Home Manners)

This class focuses on having your dog learn to have manners in your community, at parks, at pet stores, eating at a café, etc. You will be applying your basic Home Manners skills to a public atmosphere with distractions.

Having your dog listen to you around joggers, strollers, kids on bicycles and people walking their dogs are real-life situations that you can enjoy with your dog. We show you how to accomplish this at 6 different parks in the Raleigh community.

We will cover the next step to the Come command to solidify it in public where it counts the most, incorporating more distance work to your foundation.

And we role play for the AKC Canine Good Citizen Certification. You may take the test with us to prepare you for any future activities with your dog such as pet therapy, agility, etc.

Rowdy Rovers

If your dog is over-excited, rambunctious, and hyper at home and in public, this is the package for you! Lunging, barking, or reacting aggressively or seemingly aggressively toward people and/or dogs is a very unpleasant experience for you and other people. We will show you how to teach your dog to behave politely in public around people and dogs, and to remain calm around various distractions and situations. The goal is for you to be proud of your calmer dog in public.

You will start with a Private session at your home environment for 1.5 hours so we can eliminate any behaviors that are transferring to the public issues as well as ensure that your dog is listening to you prior to the public venue. Your session comes with 3 free classes at a Raleigh park on Saturdays at 10:00 am to adjust the dogs’ behavior out in a public atmosphere. (Time of class changes with the seasons)

If you are not available on Saturdays, you may set up Private Training instead.

Only $279 for the session at your home! AND includes 3 free sessions at a public venue. Register now to save your spot and enjoy a dog to be proud of!

Location Day Start Date Time
Raleigh Saturday Ongoing (Dates given after Private Session) 10:00 am




Pet Therapy: A Specialty Class!

(Prerequisite: AKC Canine Good Citizen Certification)

This class is for adult dogs who have the AKC Canine Good Citizen certification.

If your dog absolutely lives to be petted, guess what? Your dog might be a great candidate to give joy to the elderly in nursing homes or kids in hospitals or schools. The class prepares you to test for your pet therapy certification so you can visit nursing homes with a well-behaved canine that you can be proud of. We will give you the options for the organizations who test for pet therapy during class. This class is also great for further socialization and training.

We offer this class a few times a year as clients request it.

Only $129, for 5 weeks for 1 hr/week! Register now to save your spot.
