One dog keeps his nose to the ground, seeking a lost child by scent. Another guides a sightless owner into an office building, helping his human friend locate the elevator. These dogs both learned their trades thanks to the team at Gimme Grace Dog Training. Kea Grace leads this pack, helping pooches reach their full potential with a blend of classical and operant training, extensive experience in training both professional and pet dogs, and the know-how gained from multiple professional certifications. During obedience classes, family pets learn basic commands—such as how to sit, heel, or answer the phone when asked—or tricks and agility stunts designed to wow passing humans. Some dogs also train for a profession, such as service dogs who assist owners with medical needs or police dogs who learn to track targets, to search and rescue lost loved ones, or to detect bombs and drugs. The facility also takes in overnight guests, incorporating training sessions into their stay if desired. The fruits of the week’s training sessions go on display every Tuesday night, as dogs show off their talents during Pay to Play sessions led by trainers ready to help pups master skills or to referee during impromptu games of Red Rover.
With this package, registered pooches can enroll in any $85 weekly class; classes take place once a week for six weeks. Pre-requisites apply for intermediate and advanced classes, and aggressive dogs and barking cats are not permitted. Young canines get schooled on proper dog-park etiquette, including basic commands, loose-leash strolling, and social interaction, at the Positively Puppies class. For dogs more than five months old, the Manners for Life class effaces improper actions (jumping on people), and the Wallflower class pumps up social skills for shy breeds. Intimately sized classes guarantee ample attention. View a complete list of featured courses here.
