Basic Class

Simpawtico’s Basic Training Class is perfect for dogs who have either never taken a class before, or who need to brush up on rusty skills. Modern, innovative techniques move beyond simple lure-reward training and capitalize on several approaches. Conducted in an atmosphere of encouragement and guided practice, you’ll cultivate pride and peace of mind knowing how to develop your dog’s manners and skills.

This class will also help you develop a deeper bond with your dog, regardless of whether or not the dog has had training before. That makes the Basic Training Class perfect for newly adopted dogs of any age. This is a great way to help teach your new dog about yourself, your expectations, and your home.

This class is conducted on-leash. All breeds and ages are welcome!

Last night was Hailey's first night at "school". While she was a bit overwhelmed and wanted to just run and play, Ian was able to simply just walk over to her, and talk to her, and she would just melt at his feet, so to speak. He has a way with dogs that I have never seen before. EVERY dog in the class responded to him and did exactly as he requested of them. He loves dogs, you can tell and the dogs can tell. Now if we could only get Ian to come live here, Hailey would be excellent! Great guy, great place, excellent trainer!
