Your dog’s most important job is to be a good companion to you and your family!
Would you like your dog to come when you call, walk nicely on leash, greet guests politely, and wait at the door instead of running past you? Does your dog need to learn manners and obedience? We can help! We’ll share the secrets of successful dog training to get your dog working toward the good behavior goals that matter the most to you.
We use positive-reinforcement training methods, so you and your dog strengthen your relationship while training for best behavior.
NOTE: Group classes are open for registration. Peruse our list of classes. Registration is also open for a group service dog consultation Jan. 6 and a group pre-adoption consult for service dogs and ESAs on Feb. 10. Learn more about group consults. If you’re interested in private lessons (for either pets or service dogs), we are currently booking for the week of Jan. 22, 2019. Get in touch to schedule, for a referral, and/or to be added to our wait list to be notified of earlier openings. Thank you!
We offer a variety of training options to meet your schedule and training needs:
- Group Classes — We offer group classes in Orange, MA. Our most popular class is Family Dog Manners & Obedience, which gets your dog started on all the basics like sit, down, stay, come, settle, wait, and polite leash walking. We offer other classes based on demand. Learn more about group classes.
- Behavior Consultation — Have you taken your dog to training classes, but you’re still having problems at home? Dealing with bad behavior or not sure what the right approach is for training? We can help you sort through the chaos and confusion to create a plan that will get your dog on the road to the best behavior. Every plan we create is as unique as you and your dog! Learn more about behavior consults.
- Day School — Want a well-behaved dog but don’t have the time to build it from scratch yourself? We will come to your home and train your dog, then transition this training to you so you can maintain your dog’s new habits. Learn more about Day School.
- Dog Owner Training Lessons — Arranged to fit your schedule, we set up private lessons for your and your dog in your home to train the good behavior you need. Learn more about Dog Owner Training Lessons.
