About the Event


Hi Packleaders!


I have developed a group training class using the energy of the pack to teach our dogs to be well mannered and under our control at all times so that we can take them everywhere.  


 Whether you are just looking for an opportunity to improve your relations and control of your dog, raise a well balanced dog or prepare your dog for therapy work,  you and your dog will be transformed by this class.   You will be amazed how quickly your dogs will learn from this approach when we harness the energy of the group and the dogs.   


This is NOT for doggies with aggressive behavior. I offer private sessions to address aggression to enable you and your dog to participate in group classes.  The age guideline for this class is between 3 months to 3 year old, in good health and fine with dogs and people.  

What we will cover:  Getting your dog's attention "Focus", Calmness in Public, Loose Leash, Recall, Greeting Strangers, Greeting other Dogs, Proper Dog Play.


What is required from you:  Have an open mind, be willing to put in the work and have fun.  Family members are welcome as long as their is one primary handler that is commited to coming to all the classes.  Children must be under your control. 



Rules Of Engagement:

  • No retractable leashes or harnesses allowed.  Slip Lead, Pinch Collar, and/or  The Sidekick (Transitional Leash) are recommended tools.  You can order The Sidekick at  For tiny dogs, I recommend the Mendota slip leash (3/8ths 6').  For powerful breeds that are strong pullers, I recommend Herm Sprenger 2.25 or 3.0 Pinch Collar and 6' thin leather leash.  

  • Show up at least 15 minutes early to get acclimated and find our location.

  • If you are late, it poses a disruption to the pack.  Do your best to be on time.

  • Be responsible and keep a healthy distance from other dogs and people.

  • One dog per handler. You may bring a partner and/or children over 12 under your control.

  • You and your dog must be in good health and able to walk on uneven terrain and do moderate walking.

  • **Please wear athletic shoes or hiking shoes as we will be walking on uneven ground.

  • Bring water for you and your dog in a backpack. No handbags. You need to be hands free!


  • Trainer reserves the right to remove anyone disruptive to the class with no refund.
