Due to the Covid-19 outbreak and to support the safety and health of the overall community, Applewoods has paused registration for all Group classes until it is safe to resume. Private instruction is available on a case-by-case basis with our “Back to Work” instructional DVD available for order for self-training.
Applewoods’ Elementary Class is a 6-week program to introduce you and your dog to the canine training basics while socializing with the community around them. This introductory course will cover the proper way to use a leash, basic commands such as sit, stay, place, and come, as well as help address any behavioral problems you may be struggling with such as jumping, pulling, chewing, and mouth grabbing.
We use a proven, balanced, layer-upon-layer methodology. No clickers, treats, or toys… just old-fashioned and incredibly effective training. Dogs trained at Applewoods learn to think and are given the privilege of taking responsibility for their behavior while, at the same, time learn emotional and physical self-control.
Our Elementary Class is the stepping stone to the Middle School program, where you and your dog will continue your journey to an off-leash lifestyle. Save $25 by signing up for both the Elementary and Middle School Classes with our Companion Package. The program includes access to our online training forum and one piece of training equipment.
