Homeskooling 4 Dogs classes are for those who want to achieve control & cooperation, not submission from their dogs. Our classes are designed to be fun, and easy enough for your dog to understand. All training is designed to give you greater control and understanding of your dog.

Our training is not a class on inflicting punishment, nor do our classes look like participants have a feeding disorder. You will not be wearing a treat pouch, nor using a clicker. It’s important that you do not act like an adversary, or a food dispenser. Dogs will be trained using a properly fitted martingale collar, or a properly fitted “Y” harness for those not able to wear a collar. 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 Dog Training 101 Foundation's classes (classroom only, no dogs at this class) are held at the Animal Friends of the Valleys Animal Shelter in Wildomar. The Dog Training 101 Foundation classes is required to participate in the hands-on training in group class in Murrieta.
