While it may be true that puppies don’t come with instructions, counseling with our veterinarians about feeding, housebreaking, socialization, and basic training will set your pup up for success as a family member.

Next to good veterinary care, training and socializing your puppy are the two most important things you can do to ensure your pet has the best life possible.

At North Oatlands Pet Center, our compassionate and knowledgeable trainers work hard to instill in your dog skills and good behaviors to last a lifetime!

Our training classes are designed to meet the needs not only of puppies and adolescents but show and therapy dogs as well. When you enroll your canine companion in one of our training classes, you can rest assured that the instruction will be professional, cutting-edge, and compassionate.

Our group courses are for six pets at a time. Each lesson lasts one hour. At a cost of $165 per pet, the entire course runs for seven weeks, with one lesson per week. 

Dogs enrolled in these classes will receive beneficial socialization, as well as training on a wide variety of topics, including sit and stay, leash etiquette, and basic obedience.
