Obedience Classes


Great dogs don’t just happen.  Learn how to mold your pup into a calm, well-mannered dog.  This is the only class that includes social playtime for the puppies.


Our Kindergarten class for dogs of all breeds and ages.  It’s never too late to have a well-mannered dog.

Junior High

Teach your dog the two most essential aspects of training.  Your dog will come back to you and stay where you want them to around various distractions, people, and other dogs.  Take your training a step further to prepare your dog to be out in real world situations.

High School

You and your dog must always think safety first!  Imagine being able to stop your dog from crossing a busy and noisy street by a single motion of your hand.  Train your dog to stay in one place around crowds.  Get your dog ready for joining you in all of your adventures.

Kids’ Class

A+ Dog Training makes sure that responsibilities are equally distributed among family members!  Can’t decide what activity to put your child in for the summer?  How about a dog training class?  Your child will learn what it means to be a responsible pet owner and relieve you from a few more household chores.

Community Pack Walks

If your goal is to enjoy walking and socializing your dogs, this is your perfect opportunity…because it’s free!  Tom wants to get to know you, your family, and your dog! Come join us a for a walk and meet other dogs and dog owners. Walks last from 45 minutes to one hour with open sidewalks and lots of garbage cans for potty breaks. Come and go as you please!

Puppy Socials

Get advice from a professional dog trainer, be around other puppy owners that are going through the same things you are, and be able to take a one hour break from the chaos your puppy is causing.  This is when you can take a step back and enjoy watching your puppy interact with other non-fully vaccinated puppies in a controlled environment.  Puppies can teach each other so many things in an hour’s worth of play compared to a week’s worth with their owner.  Let’s make it happen!

One Hour Club

Imagine hosting a Tupperware party, but your product is an A+ dog!  We will show you and your guests the etiquette of “dog park manners” in your own backyard.  It’s like having your own dog party!

Other goals could be a basic obedience starter, practice answering the door and eliminate barking or bolting, a neighborhood walk without dogs pulling, kids & puppy play, and even a family/friends bbq with the dogs around!   Our most popular demand is a One Hour Club Pool Party to train dogs how to safely get in and out of the pool.

Dog Walking Service

If it’s too cold, too hot, or you’re too busy to walk your dog then this is the service for you.  Going on vacation?  We can walk your dog and leave the house sitting to your best friend.

Because dogs will be dogs, there is not always a guarantee with dog training.
