Homeskooling 4 Dogs classes are for those who want to learn how to lead, care and connect with their dog to achieve control & cooperation, not submission. No type of electronic collars, prong or pinch collars of any type, nor any type of chain collars will be used or permitted. (They are not necessary to train a dog to a high standard) The training is based on a system of rewards and positive reinforcement. You will not be wearing a treat pouch, nor using a clicker. When training dogs, it is important that you act like a leader, not an adversary, or a food dispenser. Our training is not a class on inflicting punishment, nor do our classes look like most participants have a feeding disorder. Our classes are designed to be fun, and educational. All training is designed to give you greater control and understanding of your dog.

Dogs that have attacked another dog or human, or do not permit the owners to handle, groom, or check their teeth are not ready to participate in a group class. We offer private evaluations, consultations and training for these dogs.
