GROUP CLASSES

We offer group training classes for both puppies and adult dogs indoors in Boca Raton and Loxahatchee, Florida. Advance registration is required.

“ Marti's class is for we dog owners who love to help their dogs be energized, obedient, active, attentive and, mostly, have fun! Each class is different, yet consistently right on to help the dogs behave well, watch us, pay attention and have a good time! That attitude is what Marti instills in us and therefore in our dogs.”
