Welcome to Happy Acres dog training group classes. We keep our classes small. Four dog and handler teams to be exact. This allows us to give each student individual attention during the 45-minute class session. Classes are held in a engaging, clean and temperature-controlled training studio. However, if the weather is nice we train outdoors on our spacious training field.
Our students have access to us, their trainers, via email or through our secret group on Facebook called Puppy SOS. Puppy is SOS is a new community for those who have taken or take classes here at Happy Acres Dog Training. The goal of this group is to support and encourage people to ask questions about dog training during the week or that came up in class but they didn’t feel comfortable to ask.
We work through 12 basic behaviors in our introductory level classes. You learn how to teach your pup with scientifically based training methods that are fun for you and your dog. And on graduation day, there is a test of sorts that will help you identify your team’s strengths and areas you still need to work.
BUT the training and support doesn’t stop there! We offer classes that take you to the next level of training! Adult Trans4mation 2 refines heeling on leash and continues to practice the come command. The behaviors practiced in level 2 will prepare you for the AKC Canine Good Citizen test and Certificate.
Don’t forget to have fun or try your hand at competitions. We offer K9 NoseWork, Parkour, Tricks and Exercise classes. These are fun for you, good for your dog’s mental health AND strengthen the bond with your pup! Why just have a dog? Let’s train a great dog!
Unless otherwise noted, Classes are $165 for 7 weekly sessions | Each Level.
