Class Benefits

Off Leash Classes filled with Fun and Learning

Our classes are primarily off leash, while we continue to address leash skills too. Off leash play in class allows us to teach your dog skills for playing nicely with doggy friends. And learning new things is always better when it includes fun with friends!

In Go Anywhere Dog™ Level 1 Dog Training Class you'll learn effective modern rewards-based teaching methods for dogs and learn to understand your dog at a level you never knew possible.

Real World Dog Training Class

You'll learn how to use these behaviors to replace the common nuisance behaviors dogs’ love, but us humans would rather live without.

Dog Life Coaches are always available at class for lots of Questions and Answers.

The Go Anywhere Dog™ Program leads you to achievement of the Canine Good Citizen certification and prepares those interested for Therapy Dog qualifications.

Human and dog friendly rewards-based methods.

In this fun 5 week class, we'll help you and your dog begin a great life together. We use people and dog friendly rewards-based methods. Each class includes play, structured learning, question/answer time and problem solving to help you turn your dog into a Go Anywhere Dog™.

Minneapolis Dog Trainer, Jody Karow CTC

I want to help you bring out the very best in your dog and you.

Dogs are magnificent fun and their ability to adjust in social family life is inspiring.  In learning about dogs navigating our modern world, I've discovered we're not as different as we think.  I'd love to be part of this journey with you.
