Dog Training Classes

Dairydell dog training classes provide practical tips for women (and men) on stopping common household behaviors like jumping, barking, digging, counter-surfing and more. Owners learn quiet control to change their dog’s behavior (no yelling or bravado). They will take away valuable lessons for becoming more effective in other areas of their life as well.

  • Do you dread having visitors because of your ill-behaved pooch? Worried about how he will act when Mom or the grandkids come to visit? No problem! Dairydell has a NEW, super-quick and easy class just for these behavior emergencies. We call it, “Manners 911”

    It’s a 3-week targeted course that focuses on the most common behavior issues owners face, showing you how to turn your dog from Naughty to Nice in no time: no jumping, no counter-surfing, no barking, no wandering off when you ask him to Stay and no ignoring you when you call him to Come.

    If you are looking for a cookies-only training program, this may not be the class for you. However, if you want to STOP unwanted behaviors the way a mother dog would quietly but clearly teach her young, you'll be amazed and thrilled! Read more about our Nature-Based training style HERE

  • This only-at-Dairydell class combines the fun of agility, the control of obedience and the excitement of a rally course.If you have a new agility dog, this class will help improve your control and ability to direct him through a course. If you have a dog already trained in basic obedience, Rally-gility will make obedience FUN, as we add skill through the weave poles, tunnels and more to his otherwise dry repertoire.

    The "rally" element of Rally-gility means that each week a "rally course" is set for the dogs, with numbered cones that call for a certain obedience or agility activity at each one (I.E. "Sit" at cone #1, "Heel Right" at cone #2, "Weave Poles" at cone #3, etc.) VERY fun, and a great way to keep your dog's obedience or agility skills sharp! During Winter months, the course is held indoors, so weather is not a concern.

    Try it - you'll be hooked!

  • Imagine! Having your dog help find your keys or cellphone! Instructor Lesley Zoromski was fortunate enough to meet and train with Dr. Debby Kay - renowned pioneer in the field of scent detection work. Dr. Kay currently works with the BATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms) as a contractor with the US government, training dogs the world over to detect explosives and other dangerous materials.

    Our class curriculum is patterned on the same foundation training techniques used in teaching bomb dogs– but instead of graduates searching for explosives, class dogs will learn to find more innocuous scents for fun. Imagine learning how to teach your dog to find your keys or cellphone!
