Group Training

Our group training programs come in level 1 and level 2. Our level 1 graduates who successfully completed their course can enter group training which has all level 1 certified handlers and dogs. Very similar to that is our level 2 group training, it is for all level 2 handlers and dogs who successfully completed level 2 obedience. Our group training classes are very dynamic and always different from the last. We tend to have anywhere from 3 to 5 dogs per class and we provide new challenges and skills for our handlers. In these programs you will learn to handle other people’s dogs during training expanding your personal experience and skills. Due to our obedience programs having a standard in place, every handler will have the same skills and tools for this training. There is no time frame for group training, and it is continuous allowing handlers and their dogs to continue their education and socialization skills in a safe and professional environment.
