Group Classes

Our group classes and puppy socials are offered in our indoor facility located at 1011 D Detroit Ave. Concord


We are different from your average dog training company!

Our students get customized emails after each class with videos and reading! Puppy class students are added to our exclusive Pup Talk group on Facebook and Reactive Dog Students are added to the Reactive Dog Support group. Our trainers are always available for questions between classes via email and we are always dedicated to using modern, force-free methods! Lastly, classes  are capped at 8 dogs, and any class with more than 6 dogs, gets a second trainer added. We want you and your dog, to succeed!
