Group Training Classes

Our classes are held at Argus Ranch Agility and Training Facility in Auburn, WA

 

We offer a wide array of small group classes for dogs of all ages, breeds and skill levels.  You will receive individual attention and advice from a highly educated trainer, with many years of experience.

 

Puppies can start classes as early as eight weeks old, as long as they have their first set of shots.  Our puppy classes provide a combination of socialization, training and problem solving. Don't wait to socialize your new puppy!  Puppy classes are rolling admission, so you can join whenever you are ready.

 

Dogs who are four months old and older can start their journey in our Manners Classes, where our goal is to help you to have a well mannered dog, both at home and in the community.  Not only do all of our classes provide obedience instruction, but they also educate you on the behavioral needs of your dog. 

 

In fact, we also offer Reactive Rover classes, which are specifically designed to help overcome fearfulness and aggression towards other dogs.

 

We always encourage family participation in training, with easy to follow instructions and one-on-one advice.  Plus, we only use a Positive and Dog Friendly Approach to training, so you won't have to worry about harmful equipment or forcing your dog to behave.  We teach you how to motivate your dog to behave using rewards such as treats, toys, attention and real life rewards.
