The Canine Learning Academy Essential Skill Series is a 4-part program comprising of: Leash Manners, Basic Household Manners, Come When Called and a fun Class to teach your dog some tricks to help around the house!

Walk This Way

Do you walk your dog, or does your dog walk you?

Taking your dog for a walk should be a joy, not a struggle. If your dog pulls, lunges, leaps, barks, or squirms on leash, this workshop is for you. We’ll focus on heel, leash control, distraction training, and more!

Important: This class is not suitable for dog that barks at other dogs. If you’re unsure if your dog is appropriate for this class, please contact us before enrolling.

Settle and Stay

Does your dog get rambunctious, overly excited, or uncontrollable sometimes?

This class focuses on self-control exercises that will help your dog be calm around distractions. We will teach dogs how to relax on a mat, settle around distractions, practice impulse control, and more! This class is perfect for newly adopted dogs and adolescents. 

Recall All Day

Does your dog come to you when called?

If not, then this class is for you! We’ll work on achieving a reliable and fast recall, getting your dog to turn on a dime when he hears you call. This is one of the most important behaviors that we can teach our dogs, that’s why we have a whole class dedicated to it!

If you dream of taking a relaxing walk with a dog who comes when called with enthusiasm and pays no attention to distractions, join us for this fun and important class!

My Little Helper

This is a fun class where we’ll be teaching dogs how to perform tricks that help you with everyday chores!

Teaching your dog to do useful tricks will not only be cute, but will provide mental stimulation, brain games, and physical exercise for your little helper. Dogs will learn how to turn on and off lights, how to put their toys away, how to open and close doors, and many more skills.

This is a great class for busy dogs or future service dogs!
