Beginning your training journey with Group Dog Training Classes!
You saw his pleading eyes in the shelter or finally brought home that adorable puppy you have been waiting for. You love him and want to do everything you can to make him an awesome family member. Training classes are the logical next step!
“I wish he wouldn’t jump on the neighbors”
“He just doesn’t listen outside of the house, when other dogs are around!”
If either of these sound like your situation, let me help!
Start here with group classes!
At the Freckled Paw we use a series of games to teach your dog concepts that will carry through his entire life. This fun and effective approach will teach your dog to love learning, and you to love training, while developing a dog who just “gets it!”
Using modern, effective and fun methods help your pup want to do what you ask them, even with other people and dogs around! Classes held at Holly Ridge Manor also offers their own distractions of horses, golf carts, a plethora of other dogs, and occasionally a herd of deer! These outdoor classes offer you the opportunity for training in a more challenging environment than a boring indoor space. This gives you the chance to really make sure your dog knows the skills to be successful anywhere!
Work through our Obedience Levels with a new dog, or join one of our 3 week “extra” sessions for a chance to practice particular skills your pup maybe struggling with. Check out all our group options below!

Basic Obedience in Levels!
Don’t get left behind in a training group when life happens, or get stuck repeating things your dog is good at while you wait for “graduation day!” Levels training lets you move forward when you are ready to make the skills more difficult! With all the levels in one class, you can see what the finished behavior will look like, and make good training decisions for your dog! Games in class allow for all levels of learning to be successful, and makes training fun and easy to understand.
Purchase a package of sessions and come to group class when it fits in your schedule.
Got a trip planned this Saturday? No problem, hop back into class next week!
Know you need lots of training? Come to class every week for lots of practice, or pair your level class with one of the Fantastic Fido Series classes to move your skills along faster!!
Every dog will begin in Level 1, once you have mastered the tasks in that level you and your dog will graduate to the next level and begin working on the next set of skills. No set timeline, no comparing to others in class, just you and your dog learning how to work together!
Get to know the skills required for a well behaved pup. We will cover clicker basics, Sit, Down, Go to Mat, Name Game and basic leash handling skills. All dogs will start here!
!Now that you know the skills you need, lets make it harder! Learn about keeping your dog successful as you make the skills more difficult. We will add in Come when called, Stay, and “leave it”.
Add distance and duration to the things your pup already knows. We will also work on polite greeting behavior and leash walking. In this level your pup should be able to reliably complete all behaviors in public!
Getting ready for AKC Canine Good Citizen Certification. All behaviors should be reliable in many different situations!
