Dog & Puppy Training in Cary & Raleigh

In Person Classes at Glenwood!

jasey teaching dog to shakeFrom puppies to “older dogs,” our classes will help! Training can start at 8 weeks of age, noting that a dog’s socialization window starts immediately. The sooner your puppy gets started on the right track, the more successful your training will be. However, it’s never too late to teach an old dog new tricks and training can begin at any age.

We offer a multitude of training options to help you and your dog strengthen your bond and learn key companion pet skills. We offer evening group dog training classes that run for 55 minutes for 6 weeks and that have specific start dates. There is also doggie day school available for your dog to work one on one throughout the day with our trainers.

While we do recommend that you do day school and classes in conjunction, we understand that is not always possible. Take a look at what we offer to see what best fits your schedule.

Group Training Classes

At the Glenwood location, your dog will learn sit, down, leave it, stay, go to your mat, door etiquette, loose leash walking, recalls (come), fun tricks, cooperative care skills and much more! During each 55 minute class, students will watch instructor demos and then practice the skills with their own dogs as Jasey coaches. For each class, you will also receive links to training videos and handouts.

Reach out to the instructor Jasey jday@carefirstanimalhospital.com with questions.

Call Glenwood to enroll 919-783-7387. The weekday evening for class offerings may change throughout the year – they are often on Wednesdays!

Group Training Reviews

“You also receive guidance and instruction via videos posted prior to each training class, which is very helpful…I like these classes because we learn fun skills, such as Zen bowl training and twirling left or right. The dogs aren’t just learning obedience, they’re having fun. Also, I like that the skills are demonstrated by the trainer’s own dog. It really helps. I highly recommend this class.” – Sue (Owner) and Mia (Dog)

“Miller and I have really enjoyed the classes so far. It has forced me to set aside time to focus on training, and in two weeks we have already seen so much improvement on her commands.” – Steph (Owner) and Miller (dog)

DOGGIE DAY SCHOOL

jasey training dogIn Doggie Day School, your dog works one-on-one with our professional dog trainers to encourage desirable behaviors such as leash walking, greeting visitors, manners, and tricks while also interacting with other dogs and people.

Dogs in Doggie Day School are exposed to a variety of situations and noises to help them be less reactive. Day School can help stop undesirable behaviors such as inappropriate barking, over-reactive behavior, and jumping up on people. As a pet becomes more advanced our trainers will begin to work with them on special tricks. After each day school session, the trainer will write a report on what your dog learned that day and also give you some homework!

IN-HOME TRAINING

This can be especially helpful if you’re having trouble correcting behaviors in the house, would like more personal attention, or want to start your puppy off with a good foundation. It is an excellent additional resource to the group classes and day school to get a full package of success for you and your dog.
