New Classes & Workshops at Superior Dog Training!

Lizzie gives a head tiltWe’ve been busy here at Superior Dog Training and wanted to let you know how you could take advantage of a TON of new classes, workshops, and events that Superior Dog Training is now offering and will be offering in the near future.

Whether you’re interested in one of our new specialty classes to help you in an area you might be unhappy with your dog’s performance,  or want to try something new with your pup… we’ve got you covered!

Manners Program Redesigned!

The biggest change here at Superior Dog Training, now underway, is our new “Life Skills” Dog Training program. We decided to redesign our old Manners program to better prepare dogs and their people for living together in real-world situations.

So we  started from the ground up, creating great new modules like “Movie Night” and “Walk in the Park” where we recreate experiences you’ll face everyday here in the classroom and teach you how to help your dog understand what’s expected.
