Looking for group dog training classes?

What you should expect to accomplish during one month of sessions with Errol & Tia:

  1. We will teach you to be able to use the correct body language, eye contact, and vocalizations.
  2. You will understand the importance of your dogs essential resources and how to provide them in such a way that it kicks starts pack-drive in your puppy or dog.
  3. The basic obedience commands. Your dog will learn to sit and stay, the perfect recall, the down and stay (which I find to be the most useful of all obedience commands), to walk with a loose leash, to heel, the go to your place command, handling prey drive properly, and much more!
  4. To learn to socialize your dog not only to other people, dogs and animals but to different situation’s, different types of floors, closed and open stairs, elevators, crowded public places and outdoor events.
