Bark Ranger Classes

No more jumping, pulling or not listening.

Basic manners has never been so fun!  We use strictly positive reinforcement to train all dogs to listen and have great manners. 


For more than twenty years we have been excited to offer dog training classes based on the most up-to-date forms of positive reinforcement training.  The Bark Ranger program is 2 levels and is specially designed for dogs over the age of 6 months.  The classes are held at the clinic, which provides your dog with fun experiences inside the veterinary hospital.  The classes are semi-private with only 6-8 dogs per class so pre-registration is required to save your spot.  It’s never too late to teach an old dog new tricks.  Don’t wait; sign up today!   

Adult Manners covers:

  • Problem Prevention

  • An Introduction to How Dogs Learn

  • How Dogs Communicate

  • An Introduction to Clicker Training

    • Basic cues such as sit, down, come, walk on leash, etc.

    • Control in distracting environments

    • Duration of behaviors such as walking on leash, settle and stay

    • Manners such as sit for an open door and sit politely for greeting

    • And so much more!
