New Dog Owner Session


Register for a private session with an Applewoods trainer for a crash course in living with your new best friend. This 1-session course is perfect for foster dogs and newly-rescued or adopted dogs. A collar and leather leash ($60 value) is included in the price of registration, along with instructions on how to use them.

This one-hour class will cover:

  • How to form a new relationship with your dog
  • Teaching your dog to be quiet and relaxed while sitting by your side
  • Teaching your dog to settle (the “off” switch)
  • How to manage the untrained dog at home
