Puppy socialization done right saves lives. Prevention of fear (which causes aggression) is our goal. Yes, we teach sit, down, stay, leave it, drop it, recall etc. but most importantly we give you the skills to raise a socially confident dog you enjoy sharing your life with.
Looking for a small group setting for some foundation dog training skills? We’ve got you. 3 dogs per class ensures instructor attention is maximized and customization of skills based on what you and your dog need. Skills taught: marker training, sit, down, stay, leave it, drop it, wait, leash skills, recall targeting, go to your place, come when called (and more!).
Looking for a fun activity for you and your dog? Dog tricks are great mental stimulation for your dog and help you build your training skills in a fun and interactive environment!
Tricks taught (not limited to): spin in circles, peekaboo, take a bow, wave, leg weaves, roll over, play dead, crawl to name a few!
Students that complete the tricks can get their Novice Dog Trick Title!

Sandy has been certified by DogBiz as a force and fear free dog walker since 2016. She began assisting Bravo group classes in early 2020 under the guidance of Renee. Sandy is on track to graduate with a Diploma of Canine Behavior Science & Technology at CASI by Aug of 2021 and will be aiming to obtain her CPDT certification shortly after. Her philosophy and advocacy in bridging our lives with our dogs in a trusting manner includes meeting where the dogs are and not where we want them to be. Additionally, by viewing our relationship with dogs from a place of “look what I can do for the dog” and not “look what I can make my dog do”.
