Group Class


“You got a dog to have a friend. You want training so your friend is more pleasant to live with.”

We resisted offering a group class for the longest time, as we were never really happy with how they turned out. I looked at many models and tried many approaches. We have A LOT of clients who have been through big box store group classes and their dogs were still a nightmare because they failed to do the one thing you went there for in the first place. Make your dog more pleasant to live with!

Our group class is different.

You should be able to enjoy your dog! We want you to know how to handle new and unfamiliar situations your dog may get into down the line. With us, you have support for your dog for his entire life. We are proud to offer you 'Pack To Basics' style Group Classes as designed by Chad Mackin!

Happy Dog Club Benefits:

  • Lifetime Club Membership for the price of one class.
  • Come back to any future class for more practice, for as often as you like!
  • Free access to our private communities on Facebook and Google+
  • Personal account on our website with access to video demos for all training exercises.
  • Lifetime access to your trainer with any dog-related questions.
  • The membership stays with your dog, even if he/she has to change families.
The Happy Dog Club is different. We don't try the impossible by promising you a perfectly trained dog in six weeks. That's unrealistic. It takes a lot more time to train a dog to be reliable in all circumstances. We want to help you to enjoy your dog. Have fun learning new skills and feel confident in yourself with your dog as new situations arise. We want to empower you to focus on what matters to you. Come back to any future Happy Dog Club Group Class to learn more if you like. You decide how much you want your dog to learn.
