Happy Tails Dog Training Classes
 

Help your pet be the best he can be! A well-behaved pet is the goal of obedience training. You’ll learn how to socialize your pet and how to prevent unwanted behaviors. Plus, your dog will learn the basic doggy manners that make living with your pet a joy.

Once you are through the basics, the two of you may want to explore more challenging skills, like Rally or Agility. See our list of class descriptions to choose the class that’s right for you.
