Group classes for dogs in Baltimore, Maryland.

Every dog deserves an education. tm

Learn how to have a confident, well-mannered companion dog for life. It all starts with communicating in a way your dog understands. All classes taught by an experienced, certified professional trainer. You’ll learn how to teach and motivate your dog using the most powerful reward you can offer, your praise and affection. In most classes we incorporate basic agility equipment as a fun way to build your dog’s self-confidence.

Our group pack walks are an excellent opportunity to expose your dog to other dogs in a controlled environment. With practice they will learn to walk politely on leash and remain calm around other dogs and people. For dogs 5 months and older. FREE for dogs who have completed a training course with Pauline. All others are welcome to join; please make a donation to our rescue dog training fund.

Canine Body Awareness Class
4-week gymboree for dogs 5 months & up

We’ll be having a ton of fun teaching your dog how to use our extensive collection of equipment while increasing your dog’s flexibility and body awareness. This class is an excellent source of mental stimulation and enrichment for every dog, which helps keep them sharp and burns energy in a healthy way. [$150]

There are no prerequisite classes, however due to the nature of the class - working on leash in close quarters with other dogs and people - your dog just generally needs to be under control and not lunging. If your dog is reactive towards dogs or people, please contact us before signing up.
