Our goal is to offer the best possible training foundation for you and your dog. All classes are limited in size to 6 dogs. There are six classes in each session. The first class is a special orientation of two hours because you need to understand how your dog learns and the reasoning behind the training methods we recommend. All other classes are one hour in length. We are positive reinforcement trainers and emphasize the correct use of positive reinforcement in all our classes because it works best.

Currently we offer group classes for behavioral obedience, puppy kindergarten, puppy hikes, and agility on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings as well as Saturday mornings. Growler Classes are two hours in length and are offered in 8 classes or 4 class per session options. Growler Classes are also limited in size to 6 dogs.

Best Buddies group classes (except Growler) are taught by Diane Thompson at Raspberry Ridge Sheep Farm

(Note: AKC Competition is fun but VERY competitive. If dog or owner lacks the prerequisites listed below, we ask that they take a refresher session of 6 weeks of weekly “Best Buddies Pet Obedience Class,” or the equivalent. Dogs & owners will be tested the first day of class.)

Dogs must:
1.) Be able to loose leash walk (You can be vocal, but you cannot use treats this test) without dropping attention from handler (no leash tightness or pulls) for at least 1 minute, and
2.) Be able to sit-stay on command and whenever the handler stops moving.

Owner must:
1.) Understand the basics of positive reinforcement training and how to use a positive reinforcer effectively, and
2.) Know what a positive reinforcement trainer should do when a dog does something “wrong.”
