Classes

At Dog's Best Friend Training, we believe classes should be fun, effective and family friendly. Our dog training classes are designed to not only teach you how to train your dog, but how to communicate, and use that knowledge to have a polite, well-mannered dog. These dog training classes help get dogs and their owners started off on the right paw. Dogs love class, and their owners tell us it is the highlight of their week!
