7:00 pm - 8:15 pm


Our next Indoor “Group Training Classes begin Tuesday, May 15, 2018 @ 7:00pm for Puppy/Beginner/Novice/Intermediate. Our Group Classes are Official *AKC/CGC & AKC/*S.T.A.R. Puppy Approved.

We will be working indoors for these classes. The 7:00pm group will be for puppies/beginners/novice/intermediate dogs from 16 weeks and older. Please note, the groups are OPEN to ALL breeds (mixed & pedigree) and sizes. Our group classes are a step above the regular puppy/beginner/intermediate group classes offered elsewhere as they are personally run by AKC Approved Instructor/Evaluator Alice Marino and offer each puppy/dOg the opportunity to be tested for the above mentioned AKC Recognized Titles.

All classes will include socialization, obedience, lOve and participation during class as well as “pack” homework and follow AKC/CGC protocol. Proof of current vaccinations are required and must be presented prior to start date! These can be emailed to directly.

The fee of $300 must be paid in full in advance by May 8, 2018.
Cash, checks, *Square, *PayPal, *American Express, *MasterCard, *Visa and *Discover accepted (*small service fee). Gift Certificates are also available but MUST be approved by RufF lOve dOg traiNIng prior to Group Class start date.

Indoor “Group Group Classes” are the perfect place for you and your “best friend” to meet with a Holistic Certified Professional Dog Trainer/Animal Behavior Specialist, AKC/CGC Approved Instructor & Evaluator and New York’s first Certified Personal Trainer for People & Pets to learn proper socialization skills as well as receive an introduction to some of the techniques needed to unleash your dog’s unwanted behaviors and lOve them to a balanced life. The AKC/CGC objectives will be the focus for all Group Classes. Puppies or dOgs too young  or inexperienced to take the AKC/CGC Test (usually given around 1 year of age or older) will be tested for the AKC/CGC S.T.A.R. qualifications and will be able to test for the AKC/CGC in the future.

Basics include sit, stay, sit/stay, down, down/stay, come when called, off, leave it, drop it, heel, loose leash walking, walking past other dOgs, sitting to be pet, handling of paws and face, ears, mouth and being brushed to name a few. All accompanying hand signals will also be taught where appropriate.  A complete handout will be given to each team with full explanations of required behaviors and expected progress.

Dogs of ALL BREEDS ~ ALL SIZES are welcome as well as your human pack members (the family). All applicants MUST be approved by RufF lOve dOg traiNIng and interview (if requested) prior to Group Class start date. There are no refunds for Group Training Classes (full or partial).
