Disclaimers

For everyone’s safety, if your dog has ever growled, snipped, aggressively barked at, lunged for, or bitten anyone or thing for any reason please do not proceed to payment for these group dog training classes. Instead, I would love the opportunity to help you address these behaviors with some private dog training. It’s important to start understanding what’s causing these responses while establishing desired alternate, healthy habits. For more information, visit http://feetandpaws.com/services/private-dog-training/

Though we will be outdoors and social distancing, I may ask to take your dog and their leash from time to time during class in order to demonstrate, and then handing them back to you. You are invited to tell me if this makes you uncomfortable (at any time during the series) and would not like to participate. This is absolutely fine. If you are comfortable with it, you should take any precautions you feel necessary (wear gloves, use hand sanitizer, etc).

Policies/Expectations

Limit of one dog per student.

Each student is allowed to bring one other person.

Properly worn masks (over nose and mouth) and socially distancing required for all humans at all times.

If you or any family member(s) at home are feeling sick in any way, including but not limited to fever, shortness of breath, cough, upset stomach, recent loss of taste or smell, etc., let me know asap, and do not attend class.

All sales are final.

Each team is allowed one make up class for use during a future series of the same level.

Written notes on the class’s content will be provided via email after the first class.

6 Foot Rule: Class and the park is an exciting environment for our pups. To help them focus on you, ALWAYS keep your dog at least 6 feet away from other dogs and people (unless otherwise instructed by the trainer), including those in and outside of class, at all times.

What People Are Saying

  • I thought my one-year-old Australian Cattle Dog (a rescue dog) might be un-trainable because he wouldn’t respond to treats. Tracy gave me some guidance as to what treats to try and how to use them. Teddy is wrapping up his basic training class and has come a long way in just six weeks. He responds to seven commands that Tracy has instructed us on how to use, and I am sure he will be able to learn new commands easily as I continue to challenge him. I recommend Tracy and the Feet and Paws classes to anyone who has a new pet.

    Sean S.
  • I have taken both private and group dog training classes with Tracy, and I LOVE her patient and positive training style. She is a highly effective and knowledgeable trainer of both dogs and their humans! Her safety tips are invaluable. For me the most important thing was to learn dog behavior and communication so that I will know how to help and train my dog in any situation, not just how to get him to sit. I love Tracy’s way of teaching from the dog’s perspective, so we can continue to deepen our understanding and bond. She shows how any dog can be trained with positive reinforcement.

    Sara L.
  • We attended 6 of Tracy’s dog obedience classes. I have a rescue Yorkie who, while I have worked with her for a year, still has a couple behavior challenges. I am a pretty experienced dog person and I learned a few “new to me” tricks. Tracy’s class is great for beginning the basics and will work, if you practice and are consistent!

    Laurie F.
  • We hired Tracy to teach us and our 8-week old puppy basic training skills, obedience and potty training. Tracy is fantastic and has an amazing way with dogs: effective, yet gentle. We knew nothing about dogs (first puppy) and we came a long way in just a few sessions and have also decided to sign up for her group classes to continue improving our dog’s socialization skills. Highly recommended!

    Lucrecia S.
    Private Dog Training & Dog Training Classes
  • We took the beginner obedience class with Tracy and truly enjoyed the experience. This is a great class to learn the basics of training your dog. It’s very informative for both pups and people. Every week our dog enjoyed the class and came out knowing new skills. Tracy gave tons of great tips and techniques to practice at home to get your dog to the level you want them to be. This class really helps you to learn to speak your dogs language and create a happy and well adjusted member of your family!

    Todd B.
    Dog Training Classes
  • Tracy is fantastic! We took her intro training group class and had her over for private training as well to address our dog’s fear of being in the car. I don’t know where we’d be without her. Our pup has learned a ton and so have we. And we all have a lot more confidence and capability now to keep learning! We would definitely recommend for new pup owners and anyone who wants to deepen their relationship with their dog.

    Taylor D.
    Private Dog Training
  • We took Puppy Class with Tracy and had a great experience! Classes were fun and definitely helped us establish good communication with our high energy pup. We like her positive training techniques and plan to do more classes with her.

    Sarah G.
    Dog Training Classes
  • Training with Tracy has been wonderful! I don’t know if I just got lucky or if she always has small classes, but my class was so small that my dog and I got a lot of attention and were truly able to learn.

    Tracy is so helpful in providing guidance to both dog and owner and tailoring it to their specific struggles. Not only is she great with the set training for the class, but she always has an answer when you ask for advice in other areas as well. My dog and I have already learned so much.

    Her energy is amazing and she’s so helpful and such a pleasure to learn from. We’re finishing up our beginner class and I definitely plan doing intermediate and advance with Tracy as well!

    Madeline B.
    Dog Training Classes
  • Tracy is very intuitive and knowledgeable with dogs. We took a beginning class with our recently adopted rescue pit-mix. She was able to help us stamp out our dog’s anxiety and respond to simple commands at the end of the course. Practicing consistently during the week is key. Highly recommended.

    Julie T.
    Dog Training Classes
  • We loved our classes with Tracy! My nine year old daughter attended as well and Tracy was not only good with our dog (a Maltese/Poodle mix) but also patient and a great teacher for my daughter. As a first time dog owner Tracy has taught us a lot of tips and tricks that really seem to work. Based on my observations of her interactions with the others in the class, she also seems very adept at tailoring suggestions for the personality and temperament of the dog. Great class, I highly recommend!

    Julie H.
    Dog Training Classes
  • We took our dog Coco to Tracy and we are already seeing progress. Tracy is amazing! I love how she gives honest feedback and gives us helpful tips that is helping us better train our dog. Tracy makes the class fun. I highly recommend.

    Iris G.
    Dog Training Classes
  • My dog and I took beginner obedience training with Tracy. My dog has a lot of anxiety issues, because he was a stray that I just took in a few months ago. Tracy’s positive energy is amazing. I really looked forward to class every week!

    We’ll continue training with Tracy, as I can tell that it’s helping my dog learn to trust humans. I highly recommend you try Feet & Paws too!

    Erika C.
    Dog Training Classes
  • We have been attending Tracy’s obedience class with our young dog since he was five months old. (2+ months). Tracy is amazing with a wide variety of dogs, patient, methodical, and has helped us in many ways, large and small. She definitely has the touch and is able to explain so many small things that need adjustment between the human and the canine. We are getting results with our rambunctious puppy and I’m grateful for her talent, kindness and helpful class. We recommend her enthusiastically.
