Toni offers both group classes and individual classes tailored to your specific needs, such as:

  • Puppy Kindergarten (4 Week class) is designed for puppies from 8-20 weeks. During class the puppies will socialize and have fun playing! They work on learning all of the basic cues and talk about desensitizing to common household items (vacuum, doorbell, broom, etc). She will also talk about understanding your dog's body language, discuss any puppy concerns you may be having, play some games, learn a couple of tricks and have fun!
  • Manners and Life Skills class (5 week class) is designed for dogs 6 months and older. She will review basic cues, and work on some advanced ones. She will incorporate some "life events" to prepare your dog to be in the real world--walking in a crowd, being OK with different people, learning heel, etc. This is a fun, energetic class!
  • Canine Good Citizenship class (6 week class) is designed for any dog! She will work on very specific cues from the American Kennel Club. Participants may choose to be tested at the end of class to earn their CGC certificate. CGC class is fun and you will be so proud of what you and your dog accomplish together!
  • Private sessions are designed for specific behavioral issues. She will meet in your home, at the training center or at any place where the problem arises!

Dee offers group classes and individual lessons using force-free methods that can be easily used by you and your family. These include:

  • Group classes for both young and adult dogs. A great opportunity for you and your dog to bone-up on skills and learn all the essentials. Advanced classes teach how to master cues and add distraction and distance.
  • Individual lessons are ideal for families with difficult schedules or difficult dogs. Get coaching for selecting the right dog for your lifestyle, for specific behavior problems or skills.
  • We’re excited that Board and Train will now be available while your dog is staying at the Denver Canine Club, either for daycare or overnight. We’ll work with your dog one-on-one and design a program to fit your needs. Owners will receive instructions on what the dog has learned and how to maintain new behaviors.
