Dog Training in
Washington County, RI
Do you have puppy classes?
We do not have a puppy specific class, but all puppies are encouraged to join our group classes!
We do offer a special discounted puppy private lesson program as well!
What does flexible scheduling mean?
You purchase a Class Pass for all group classes except Calming Chaos. Let’s take the Mayhem to Manners Class Pass for example. This class pass gives you 7 classes. you can take any 7 classes on the schedule on whatever day/time works best for you.
Normally you take classes on Tuesdays, but you have another commitment on a particular Tuesday. No big deal! You can take a class on Monday or Wednesday instead. Or you can take a week off altogether.
Vacation coming up? No worries. Because you have 9 weeks to complete the Mayhem to Manners Class Pass you can easily skip a week or two!
What are the benefits to flexible scheduling?
Never need to miss a class.
You can plan your dog’s training around your needs.
You can try new classes such as K9 Nose Work® or Tricks without a long term commitment.
Different dogs & people in your classes so your dog learns to work around a larger variety of dogs.
If you’re struggling with one or two things like loose leash walking and recalls you can take more classes that focus just on those topics.
Do you have advanced manners classes?
Our Marvelous Manners Class will bring you from Basic to Advanced. The class is meant to be repeated until you are happy with your level of training. We customize our training to each individual team, even in our group classes. For more advanced training, check out our Conquering CGC Class!
How many dogs are in class?
Indoor Classes are capped at 2 students during times of COVID.
Otherwise, classes range from 4-6 participants depnding on the class.
Can I bring more than one dog to class?
Yes, but for manners, tricks, and CGC classes there must be 2 adult handlers.
K9 Nose Work® classes frequently have 2 dogs belonging to one handler. Dogs wait in vehicles between their turns so one handler can handle several dogs in one class.
Do you offer CGC & Trick Dog testing?
Yes! Keep an eye out on the calendar and our newsletter for announcements. Generally offered every few months.
Can I bring my whole family to training classes?
Yes, but children should be over the age of 10 and able to sit quietly during class. Children are welcome to train their dogs with parent supervision.
We are happy to work with children in private lessons.
Do you offer Therapy dog classes and/or testing.
No, but Conquering CGC! is a good step towards becoming a therapy dog team. Often times the CGC is required to continue on to therapy dog work. We do not offer therapy dog testing.
Do you have daytime classes?
Yes! We have a Tuesday afternoon class that meets outdoors at the park!
Do you train service dogs?
No, but we can gladly pass on recommendations for those who do!
