Problem Pooch Class

Problem Pooch class is a wonderful opportunity to get expert tips and advice on dog behavior and training issues.

  • Are you thinking of crate-training and not sure it’s right for you?
  • Does your dog have home-alone issues?
  • Potty-training not going so well?
  • Need help starting things off right with your new companion?

Join us to find answers to your questions and get help for common behavior concerns. This class is perfect for first-time dog owners or those with newly-adopted dogs. We limit the class size so everyone has a chance to ask questions and participate. This class is for people only, bring your questions but leave your pets at home.
