Below is a list of classes that run every week at Pawsitive Kinection. To inquire about enrolling or if you have questions about a specific class, please contact us.
We offer a variety of classes geared towards a positive, fun learning experience for both the dog and handler. We do offer private lessons when time permits, and are happy to custom tailor classes for our students and their canine partners.
With each class we try to build the curriculum around current students and their dogs. Not all dogs are created equal and not all dog owners are created equal. We think it's important to take advantage of the strengths of each dog and handler partnership and build their education from the ground up.
If you have specific training or class questions please feel free to contact us to discuss what would work for you and your dog.
Private lessons are also available and will be tailored to your individual goals.
