Fido and Friend: Dog Training for Kids

In this fun, interactive class, your child will get to take the lead! They’ll discover how to teach your dog basic cues and cool tricks. Plus, they’ll learn more about canine body language and how to appropriately play with their best friend. This class is taught by Natalie, who is both a dog trainer and an elementary school teacher.

For kids ages 9 to 12 and dogs 4 months and older.

Please note: This class will cover basic cues (sit, down, stay, etc.); however, if your adult dog has had no previous training, we recommend attending a Basic Manners class before coming to this class. Please contact us if you have questions.
