This small group will meet outdoors (weather permitting). With 8.25 acres of park to explore including options for swimming or wading, we have plenty of opportunities to work on public manners such as loose leash walking, recall, greeting politely, and more!

Please keep in mind that this session is held in public and the environment may be unsuitable for some pets.

Our group classes function a little differently than most, in that all classes run on a rotating schedule so that you can join in whenever you like! All of our classes are served “a-la-carte” style, at $30 per session, you are not required to purchase a certain amount of sessions in advance. Instead, each daily topic is listed on our monthly calendar so you can attend the topics that are important to you in any order you prefer, and repeat or skip lessons as you like. This puts you in full control of what your pup learns, and what is important to you, without hurting your pocketbook.

Pre-enrollment is required to attend class.

All participants must wear a flat buckle collar, harness or head collar (e.g. halti or gentleleader), and a non-retractable 6 ft leash.

Pet Parents should bring a sandwich-size bag with some of pet's food and some small treats.

Pinch, choke, slip, or electronic collars are not permitted when working with Simply Animal Behavior and Training Center for the safety of you, your pet, and the staff. 

Banned collars can be traded in for big discounts on any of our services.


$30 per session, payment method required to reserve appointment, charges will not be made until after the appointment time.
