Dogs World North offers the most flexible group training classes available known as Levels Training.

Levels obedience training is a group program offering unlimited training sessions during the period you are enrolled. With a levels membership, you can come to our drop-in classes as often as you like. Get as much or as little training as you want, or need, based on your own expectations for your dog. Some students may come as often as three times a week! Check our schedule to see when each level is offered. Move through all four levels or choose to stay at a lower level. The choice is yours!
 

Level 1: Starting out. Level 1 will introduce the basic commands sit, down, stationary attention, and the name game.

Requirements to move to Level 2: Dog can sit and down on command. Dog will readily respond to his name with mild distractions.

Level 2: Manners Training. We will work on walking politely on a loose-leash without pulling, paying attention to the owner while walking and ignoring other dogs. We will also begin working on recall and stay. Level 2 includes problem-solving information for behaviors such as barking, digging, chewing…etc.

1-on-1 Dog Training

In some cases it's easier for dogs to focus and be trained in a one-on-one atmosphere. Our popular 1-on-1 Dog Training program is personalized to match the needs and personality of you and your dog and will give you the confidence to eventually join a group class. 1-on-1 Dog Training focuses on behavior modification and provides a setting in which he/she can have optimal concentration on learning. We recommend 1-on-1 Dog Training for dogs with behavior problems that have been learned and need to be unlearned. 1-on-1 Dog Training at Dogs World North is available for all levels of learning, basic through advanced.

Board and Train

Our Board & Train program allows your dog to have 1-on-1 Dog Training while he/she stays at our facility. The program lasts for 6 weeks and is personalized to meet the needs of you and your dog. This provides a focused, distraction-free setting in which your dog can learn and retain necessary skills. The price of the Board and Train program includes exit sessions.
