Sometimes it just works better together.

We have several different group class options that cover a range of topics. Our classes incorporate the latest science-based techniques and we only utilize positive reinforcements to teach behaviors. In-person group training classes take place out of The Animal Care Center at Cherry Way in Gahanna, Ohio.

Vaccines are required to attend a group class. If your dog has not been vaccinated,
check out our in-home training program.

Puppy Class (for dogs 8 - 12 weeks of age at sign-up)

Class is 5 weeks long and sessions last 45 minutes each.

Puppy class is a socialization class where dogs learn what is safe and not safe in the world. Learning appropriate play with other dogs as well as interaction with other humans is vital to their success as adults.

While the class is focused on socialization, we do cover topics such as potty training, nail trimming and sit/stay. Many behavioral issues are preventable in a well socialized dog. This class sets your puppy up to be confident, happy and comfortable in the world of humans.

Classes are offered Wednesday evenings at 7 or 8 pm.

Specific Topics Covered Include:

  • Potty Training
  • Crate Training
  • Socialization to novel objects and equipment
  • Exposure to veterinary exam tables and kennels
  • Appropriate socialization with other dogs and people
  • Owners will learn how to keep their puppy from play biting as much
  • Owners will learn to teach their pup to sit and stay
