Special Events

Mark your calendar for our annual Doggy Day (RDO Day)

Saturday, September 10th, 2016!

You can reserve a booth (indoors and outside) at any time, or just mark your calendar for a day filled with fun and activities!

We’ll hold the CGCA®-test during Doggy Day. The CGC®-test will be held as usual in September, with a possible additional day in February after our High School Class. For 2016, that would be Sunday, Feb 28th and Sunday, Sep 11th


All our classes run once a week for full 60 minutes, with an additional 15 minutes in between allowing for switching over. We have some classes starting every month!

We offer classes for all pet dogs, starting at 9 weeks of age. Improve your dog’s manners, using positive reward-based methods. Come to our agility or other sports classes to give your dog an outlet, no matter if you want to compete later or not.

Reward-based training works for any type of dog: assertive, shy, stubborn, active, reserved, unruly, overly smart, not so smart (they might only pretend)… Our training will improve your relationship with your dog(s) - your dog learning to respect and trust you and you becoming a better advocate for your dog’s needs.

Does Your Dog Have C.L.A.S.S.?
Practice real-life skills in our CLASS-BA Course and then test your dog to earn a Bachelor’s degree! B.A. skills include wait at the door, come and leashing up manners, loose leash walking and attention, meet and greet (people), leave it, wait for the food bowl, stay, and settle. This course is a 6-week class, with maximum 6 dogs. All exercises will be practiced in form of games and role plays, including some higher level (M.A., Ph.D.) exercises each week as well.
