From groups to private sessions, we have the perfect class for you and your pooch!
We offer classes for all ages of dogs at all levels of experience! Browse through our course curriculums below:
We offer multiple Puppy Classes each week including Puppy Social Playtime where your puppy will learn the basics of socialization and obedience as well as AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Class and Champion Agility where your puppy can earn advanced AKC manners certifications and learn the basics of competitive agility.
Comparable to a gym membership for your dog, our innovative class structure is more flexible than a traditional 6-week class because we offer unlimited training sessions during your enrollment. Instead of being limited to one class on the same day and time each week, your Urban Pooch LEVELS membership allows you to attend as many class sessions each week as you’d like if those classes are at your dog’s training level.
Sue Sentowski is a certified K9 Nose Work instructor (CNWI) with the National Association of Canine Scent Work (NACSW) and competes with her dogs Splash and C.J., both of whom are currently at the NW3 level.
Our Board & Train packages allow your dog to live and work with one of our trainers for either 1 or 2-weeks at a time. Our expert trainers can solve any behavioral problem. A week of Board & Train can give your dog the extra help they need to develop good manners and healthy habits.
Our FitBark Membership is a one-of-a-kind program that offers monthly and weekly rewards for pooches based on their activity. The FitBark Activity Monitor enables dog parents to electronically track and understand their pooch’s activity, thereby promoting health and well-being.
FitPaws is a curriculum of classes designed around the specific needs of your unique dog. Whether you want to help your puppy build confidence, help your performance dog achieve better scoring or give your senior dog a higher quality of life FitPaws can help. In FitPaws, we touch on the 5 aspects of Canine Total Health: Mental Health, Balance, Strength, Cardio and Flexibility.
