Six Weeks to Success Group Obedience Classes
Group obedience classes are designed to teach you training techniques in a progression that works best for you and your dog. Some dogs are motivated by food, some are motivated toys, and some are motivated by your attention or praise. We take our experience and help you apply what works for you and your dog. Plus you get the added benefit of learning by watching each other.
All group classes are held at Star Riverwalk Park, 1000 S Main Street, Star, ID. Click here for directions.
