AnimalSense provides a variety of group classes to rival the number of breeds, ages and temperaments of dogs who take them. From puppy basics and socialization to building confidence in shy dogs, to canine sports like agility and nose work – we can help you find the class that best fits you and your dog’s needs.
No matter which class you select, you’ll benefit from our limited class size that enables you and your dog to get a great deal of one-on-one attention from our experienced trainers. Many group classes are led by both a Senior and Junior Trainer so that you receive individualized attention throughout your lesson.
Anytime Enrollment: Because proper puppy socialization is so important, we offer a four-week Puppy HeadStart class that allows you to select your own start date so that it fits your busy schedule! We will send orientation videos for you to view before coming to class to get you up to speed on many FAQs regarding training puppies. This class can be taken more than once.
We love rescues here at AnimalSense so much that we offer a $25 discount on all first time, stand-alone classes for rescue dogs. We even have a class designed with rescue dogs in mind. In It’s Never Too Late, you’ll work on basic handling and obedience skills to encourage good canine manners and facilitate communication and trust. (Note: the rescue discount does not apply to package prices.)
All of our classes have a maximum of 6 dogs, depending on the location. The smaller class size will enable dogs and humans to have a more personalized experience while still benefiting from a multi-dog learning environment.
Our specialized class for dogs who show aggression toward other dogs or people on leash is unlike any other. We limit the class size and set up the classroom so that your dog can work within her limits. Please note that the first class will be held with people only. Dogs will attend the following 5 sessions. (Discounts do not apply to this class.)
