Dog Training at Dogism

“Properly trained, a man can be a dog’s best friend.” ~ Corey Ford

We understand that your life is busy and complicated enough. We want dog time to be fun and easy. We strongly believe in keeping it simple when it comes to life with a dog. Our multi-service training facility is here to help you achieve that simplicity.

Advanced registration is suggested for most classes. Check out the calendar tab for times and start dates. Just give us a call or send us an email (you can use any of the contact links on any page) and we will supply you with everything you need to know before coming to class. But just in case you want to pop in at the last minute, we always need a copy of your dogs shot records, a regular 5′ or 6′ leash (no retractables please) and we suggest you wear comfortable shoes. Your dog suggests you bring some soft and yummy training treats as well!
See you soon!

TRICKS 

If you think dog tricks are all about jumping through hoops or playing dead, you don’t know our dogs! Our tricks classes are based on the Do More With Your Dog and AKC Trick Dog programs. Tricks are a wonderful bonding activity for owner and dog as well as good mental stimulation for the dog. Learn tricks for fun or work towards different levels of titles. Everyone, even the dog, takes a bow at the end of these classes.

Canine Enrichment

Maybe they are not going to become the next Mozart, but our dogs enrich our lives in so many ways, we need to return the favor.  This class offers a new doggy version enrichment each week to stimulate dogs brains and to offer new and novel objects for all their senses.

Senior Dog Enrichment

Specifically for our grey muzzle friends, this class offers mental stimulation for our senior dogs who may not be able to physically get out as much as they used to.  Enrichments will vary, ranging from puzzle toys and treat searches to scent boxes and easily navigated physical obstacles.

This is NOT considered physical therapy.  If you are unsure about your dogs ability to participate, please consult your veterinarian.

PRIVATE TRAINING

SPECIAL TRAINING AND SEMINARS

From time to time we will offer training and seminars on specific needs or fun topics. Keep checking back for what’s new!

Leash pulling and heeling seminar – date TBD
Pulling on the leash and erratic walking is a common issue. This seminar will focus on techniques to reduce leash pulling and ways of having a more controlled walk when necessary.

Kids and Kanines – date TBD
Kids and dogs can be the best of friends. However, sometimes young ones do not fully understand that dogs speak a slightly different language then we do. This seminar will help children understand doggy body language and how to act around dogs they know and dogs they do not know.

CONTINUOUS VS. SESSION CLASSES

Classes described as “sessions” have been designed to run for a determined number of weeks. Skills and behaviors follow a curriculum and build on each other from week to week. At the end of the session, you are ready to move on to the next level. There may be a short break between one session ending and a new one beginning.

Continuous classes are held every week and are designed to allow anyone to start at any time. The same skills and behaviors are taught week to week, so dogs and handlers will be working on different levels. While there may be some overlap and review for those just joining, the curriculum has been designed to keep all levels challenged until they are ready to move on. Trust us; there is more than one way to sit and down your dog!
