Group Classes

Paws4ever offers fun and accessible group classes to help you and your dog bond and achieve your training goals together! Group classes are taught by professional trainers and use positive and proven-effective methods.

 

Paws4ever does NOT allow the use of unlimited slip or choker style training collars, pinch or prong style collars metal or plastic, nor any electronic collars at any time on our campus. We believe science-based, positive reinforcement training is the best way to build communication, cooperation, and trust between you and your dog. 

COVID-19 NOTICE

Masks are now optional indoors. Social distancing and frequent hand washing are encouraged.

*We ask that you do not visit if you have any illness symptoms, including fever, cough, or shortness of breath, or know that you have been exposed recently to someone who is ill*

We will continue to assess and update classroom rules as we follow guidelines from health professionals and the state to determine the safest course of action for our dog training classes.
