Canine Training Classes   (Date Night With Your Dog™)

Training classes..that is such a drab, boring word..we prefer to call our classes a date with your dog. We believe that it is a night out ”just you and the pooch”creating a relationship. Training your dogs is not simply “giving your dog commands”, it is working towards a common bond.  At emBARK, we try to kick boredom in the butt. Our classes are uber informative with a dash of craziness to create an upbeat, positive environment.   Our approach to training is very different than the typical dog trainer.   Our classes are anything but dull or militant – hence our unique “date night with your dog” approach to training classes!   Training your dog should be a relationship, NOT a dictatorship.  It is much easier to teach your dog what to do rather than focus on how to stop unwanted behaviors.  With over 25+ years of experience in their back pockets, they have heard every training issue that you can throw at them.  Whether you have an 8 wk old Chihuahua or an 11 year old Newfoundland, we have the perfect class for you! We offer 16 DIFFERENT classes – the biggest selection in the Midwest!  We also have our patented “A LA CARTE™”  classes that are only 4 weeks long to help busy dog moms and dads hone in on single skills without a huge  time commitment.  Our training philosophy centers around positive reinforcement and incorporates:

emBARK’s 5 training rules for success:

  • Reinforcement builds behavior
  • Every behavior has a consequence
  • Commit to be consistent
  • Lead like a leader
  • Define your expectations
