Obedience and Enrichment Classes

3 dogs minimum, 6 dogs maximum per class; length of sessions is dependent upon class size in order to provide plenty of individual attention and activity.

You're never too young to learn!AKC S.T.A.R.Puppy Class

Saturdays at 8 AM — with Hope Saidel
appropriate for all puppies 2 to 12 months, limited to six puppies only, six-week class, $225
Gain valuable insights into how dogs learn and the best ways to teach them through positive reinforcement and training games. From potty training to nipping, jumping, stealing socks — all aspects of a puppy’s potential “naughtiness” will be addressed. Your pup will also get the chance to experience socialization with other puppies and owners in a safe and monitored environment, setting a good foundation for positive social interactions as they grow. Start working on positive obedience skills like loose-leash walking, calming behaviors, coming when called, polite greetings, and staying in place.
This class requires treats, a sense of humor, patience, and a willingness to practice at home — no more than five minutes at a time, as many times a day as you like.
Participants can elect to earn their AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Certificate — but this class is for all puppies, not just those wanting the title!
Added benefit: the early class time tires your puppy out for the rest of your Saturday so you can do what you need to do!
June 8, 15, 22, 29 and July 13 & 20 (no class July 6)

Manners / Household Obedience

for dogs ages 10 months to adulttraining at Rex's Place for every stage of a dog's life

Saturdays at 9 AM — with Hope Saidel, limited to six dogs only, six-week class, $225

Learn training games to reach the mannerly behavior you’d like to achieve with your dog. Great for dogs going through their adolescence (terrible twos), or adult dogs who could benefit from working on positive behavior skills.
This includes (but is not limited to) loose-leash walking, coming when called, stays, etc. Depending on the needs of the participants, anything from crate-training to counter-surfing, from jumping on people to barking will be addressed.
There’s no need to remember all the games from class – a weekly recap/summary will follow with detailed reminders. Participants are expected to play three to five training games with their dogs each day, each no more than five minutes at a time. Less than 1/2 hour per day to a well-mannered dog!

Led by AKC CGC and Trick Dog Evaluator Hope Saidel, this class is active and fun for both you and your dog.


Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Class: Go For The Gold!Get the Gold! Border Collie with large Gold CGC medal

Saturdays at 10 AM with Hope Saidel

appropriate for dogs ages 10 months to adult, limited to 6 dogs only, six-week class, $225

The AKC’s Canine Good Citizen certificate is the gold standard for basic behavior and obedience, but it’s so much more — it serves as supporting documentation that your dog will be a good rental tenant, it’s a key step toward really advanced skills that you might want your dog to master, and most of all, it’s a huge milestone in the path to you and your dog really understanding each other.
Our 6-week class works with you on the skills to be evaluated for the CGC certificate, building on basic manners and obedience. Game based training and positive reinforcement are used throughout the course. The only equipment needed is a six-foot lead (no retractable leashes) and plenty of high-value food treats. Small class size ensures that you and your dog will get plenty of individual attention and support. You are not required to apply for the CGC certificate at the end of the class, but it sure is fun!
