$95 for a Six-Week Group Training Class for Dogs ($195 Value)
Owners join their pups for small group classes, most of which are led by both a senior- and junior-level trainer to ensure plenty of one-on-one attention for each interspecies pair. The organization’s nine locations offer up to 30 classes per week, and each class takes place one hour per week for six weeks. Class subjects range from basic puppy socialization to honing a dog’s scent detector in order to teach creative problem-solving or open up a career as a sommelier.
Owner Lindsay Rapp surrounds herself with a staff of canine-whisperers who employ both human and animal psychology to help owners and pets live long, happy lives together. Agility training equips dogs for high-intensity play or auditions for basketball movies, and other courses tailored to families with children keep the peace by preparing dogs for a new baby or preparing families for a new dog.
