  • Canine Core Method Training Classes
    All dogs can be part of a successful and social team if you tap into their primal desire to: Hunt and Connect. Using their prey drive, you will create a lasting bond with your dog that not only heals old wounds, but creates new channels for social behavior. From this foundation we “teach” the dog obedience. However, obedience doesn’t come from following commands, it comes from the dog feeling in sync with his handler.                                                         
  • Here are some upcoming dates for Canine Core Method Training Classes:
    • Tuesdays starting April 24th, 7:00-8:00pm with Leah Twitchell
      This is a 5-week class.
