The Most Effective Dog Classes in Marshfield

Some of Our Favored Classes


All dogs that will be dropped off with us for Boarding or Training MUST have current vaccination documents as well as a NEGATIVE FECAL certificate preformed by their vet within 48 hours of dropping the dog off.   If these documents are not produced your dog will not be accepted at this facility!!!! 

Group Classes

We offer 'level based group classes' which allow each dog/handler team to work at their own pace in mastering the 5 levels. We allow you 6 months to accomplish this from the date you sign up.

Orientation begins with a lecture on equipment, the principles of dog training by today's standards, and an overview of level 2.

Level 2 covers sit and sit/stay, down and down/stay and loose leash walking. No more being dragged by your pooch!

Level 3 continues on the basics of level 2 but adds distractions that you will encounter in the everyday world with your dog. We also add resistance stays, calling your dog to come and to sit infront of you politely, and also to sit from a down using only verbal commands.

Level 4 teaches you how to navigate left and right turns without tripping over your dog, about turns with sudden stops and run outs, longer sit and down stays, and finally long distance recall to a sit front.

Level 5 begins the off leash heeling with pace changes, sits in motion, downs in motion, quick halts with automatic sits and lots of distractions during the long distance recalls.

Level 6 culminates all previous levels and includes a test on all aspects of the classes. Certificates are awarded when you pass!
