the sans-dog start up

pre-arrival preparation –
human training sans dog
"Puppy-less puppy class was the smartest thing I ever could have done before getting our new dog (all lecture, no leash - less dog!) We trained at + dog with our first dog, and even though it was 11 years ago, I thought I remembered everything. I didn't.

"When you find a rhythm with your dog, you forget all the things it took to create that relationship. I wanted to ensure that we would develop that again with our new guy. Jen assured me that this refresher training would help us imprint our puppy (and ourselves) with the right tools, right from the start. Rather than correct problems once they've happened, we're giving ourselves and our pup the best possible chance of positive growth right from the beginning.

"An added benefit: once you're in the + dog crew, you're in. You know all those times you wish you could call your doctor just to make sure your headache isn't a brain tumor? Well, you get that with + dog : customized attention just for you and your dog. No question is too small or silly. The trainers are available and responsive, and they provide answers and guidance whenever you need it."
— Sarah S.

Scheduled your free pre-enrollment consultation!? We can't wait to see you at the training center… which could be sooner than you think!

Why not start your + dog education now??

+ dog is always at the head of the pack and continues to offer innovative new ways to help you on your training journey. That's why we offer our

"sans dog" start up!

That's right! Enjoy the benefits of the pawsitive dog classroom without your dog. Exclusive to the + dog curriculum, this unique training option lets you focus on your education first and then focus on you & your dog as a team. Whether you're still dog-shopping, waiting for your new pup to arrive, or counting the days until your pre-enrollment consultation, these sessions are for you!

Why would be recommend this option? By having the opportunity to take the first few classes without a distraction at the end of the leash, you can really jump -start your training journey. Didn't think it could get any better? Keep the momentum going, after each class, you're invited to call with questions and, after your consultation, take it again with your dog. Just another way to customize the experience and solidify your dog's foundation.

While you're waiting for your personalized consultation, our "sans dog" classes allow you to evaluate and adjust your day-to-day routine and begin targeting relationship, good manners, obedience, behavior and more right now… before bringing your dog into the classroom process. You can ask questions, take notes, observe and go home to practice, practice, practice. You'll come into the consultation better prepared to get the most out of your training dollar and then confidently join our traditional classes one step ahead of the pack.

It's really a no-brainer… because every + dog student takes our first 2 sessions, why wouldn't you enroll today? Here's your chance begin pounding the pavement with confidence and start creating the enjoyable lifelong partnership you've always wanted.

As with our consultation, at the time of registration we require a credit card deposit to hold any scheduled "sans dog" session.
