Dog Training Orientation

Dog in glasses reading - Training Orientation

Have you ever wondered  why your dog keeps jumping, barking, or digging despite you telling (or yelling at!) him to stop?  Whether dogs have morals or  actually live in packs?  What’s the best way to communicate with a dog?  Our Dog Training Orientation answers these questions and more; it’s where your training experience begins!

Orientation is a required session for new human students before starting group classes, private lessons, or dog tutoring services.  It involves watching a recorded video and completing an associated comprehension quiz – you can do it without leaving the comfort of your couch!


Access to our recorded Training Orientation will be emailed to you following registration.  You can then watch the video and complete the quiz at your convenience! You will need to complete the quiz that accompanies the video before your registration for class or private lessons are confirmed.  Click the link below  to get started!

Completing Orientation is a no-risk opportunity to learn valuable information about dogs and even better, how to train YOUR dog.  There is NO COST for completing our Dog Training Orientation and NO obligation to enroll in a class, but registration online or over the phone is required to attend. 

The presentation takes about an hour and goes over the following:

  • How dogs learn & why they do what they do
  • Debunking common dog myths and demystifying common dog behavior
  • The basics of our family-friendly training approach for working with dogs of all shapes, sizes, ages, and breeds
  • How to prepare for class or private lessons – including what to bring and how to make the most of training time
  • A copy of our mandatory Veterinary Release Form must be submitted prior to starting in-person group classes with your dog
