Step 3 Adult Classes

Watch your dog reach all of your dog training goals!

All students begin at Elementary School, regardless of your dog’s prior training. Rest assured that depending on your dog’s training level, you may only need to take one class in Elementary School before moving up to Middle School! By starting him in the first dog training class, we are ensuring that your dog has the foundation required to move forward, and that you both understand BlueDog’s training philosophies & techniques.

How Our Program Works

The dog school at BlueDog works entirely different than any other dog training facility.  Our program works more like a gym membership!   

You begin by purchasing a 2 or 6-month membership and then during that time you can attend unlimited classes, starting immediately.  Your dog will begin in Elementary School where he will learn a set number of skills (you’ll receive an email with your syllabus of these skills as soon as you sign up.)  Once he can show us that he knows all of those skills, he’ll graduate to Middle School where he’ll learn even more skills!  

In addition, from day one you’ll have access to many of our great extra-curricular activities.  An entire description of the classes that your dog can attend can be found here.  Experience seven days a week of options for your dog’s education!

The goal of our Adult Dog Program is to help your dog become a superstar and earn his AKC Canine Good Citizen certificate!
