Smrtdog class sizes are kept small to ensure individualized attention.
Class size is generally 3-5 dogs.
Specialty classes are designed to take your training to the next level. Whether you are interested in volunteering for therapy dog work (Canine Good Citizen), wanting to put your dog’s new skills to practice (C.L.A.S.S.), curious about games and obstacle training (Fun & Games), or need some extra practice with impulse control (Control Unleashed $195 for 6 weeks), specialty classes help you achieve more specific goals.
All of the specialty classes are $125 for 4 weeks, except the Control Unleashed class which is $195 for 6 weeks.
Class dates and times are subject to change. Class dates are consecutive weeks, unless otherwise indicated. Occasionally, weather or illness may require last minute cancellation of a class, in which case class dates will be extended by one week. Occasional teacher substitutions may occur. A minimum of 3 dogs/handlers are required for a class to run. When a class date needs to be rescheduled, your understanding is appreciated.
What to bring to all SMRTDOG classes:
- Flat collar or front clip no-pull harness (such as Sense-ible Harness)
- A leather or nylon leash. No retractable leashes please.
- Poop bags for clean up.
- Your dog’s favorite treats, preferably something soft and in small pieces
Get 3 friends together and we will customize any of the smrtdog classes just for you.
We can customize a training workshop, a training class, a lecture for any organization including doggie day cares, rescue organizations, shelters, dog training clubs, etc.
Payments are due BEFORE the start date of class.
We will make an effort to accommodate you in the event the class is not right for you or your dog OR a start date is cancelled due to not enough sign ups. The payment can be applied to private sessions if necessary.
Registration is online.
IS A GROUP CLASS RIGHT FOR YOU AND YOUR DOG?
If a puppy (or dog) is in his socialization period (or adolescent period) and is showing signs of fear, failing to acclimate to the situation or becoming excessively reactive or disruptive, then the puppy (or dog) is not in an appropriate setting for learning. The puppy (or dog) may benefit from private training and/or behavior modification.
