We offer a variety of group classes. Please see our schedule below for upcoming classes. Group classes are a great experience for all dogs and owners, as our trainer will teach you how to train your dog effectively using proper reinforcement techniques. Class is a great way for your dog to learn new behaviors and practice them around distractions.

Private Dog Training
Private Training is specifically designed for one-on-one training with your family and our trainer. Training can be held in your own home, at Camp Bow Wow, or wherever your dog is experiencing problems. Private Training may be subject to a consultation in which our trainer will evaluate your needs and create a training plan. This option can be utilized to brush up on your pup’s basic obedience, develop household manners, implement a training plan for your new dog or puppy, or solve behavior problems (including aggression and/or fear), and more. This program is perfect for any dog or family seeking individual attention.
Play & Train
