Mini-Courses & Seminars

Large badge graphic for mini-courses

From time to time I offer one-session workshops and seminars that focus on specific elements of dog ownership. Oftentimes these are practical in nature, and sometimes they’re purely for fun. Class length, prices, and scheduling varies. These are open to everyone, regardless of whether you’ve trained here before or not.

  • Solving the Jumping Up Dilemma
  • Excessive Barking
  • Preparing for new Baby
  • Hiking with your dog
  • And lots more in the works!

Class space will be limited for these mini-courses and seminars, so make sure to join the mailing list to stay in the loop (and receive a FREE 33-page Buyer’s Guide, too)!
