Group Classes beginning in January 2024

GROUP  Lessons /Classes are limited to 10 dogs (some are smaller). This gives me the opportunity to spend quality time with each human and dog. 

These classes are held outdoors in the large play field at the shelter and are weather-dependent.

Prices for the Group classes at Cape Coral Animal Shelter are as follows:

Adopter from the shelter $150. General Public $175

Sat AM class: Group classes are held at a Cape Coral Animal Shelter, Cape Coral, FL. These group classes are 45 minutes long and are 4 consecutive weeks beginning on the first Saturday of the month. 

Jr Puppy All sizes (up to 6 months)  8:30 AM

Senior Puppy Small Breed (6 months to 12 months) 9:30 AM

Senior Puppy Large Breed (6 months to 12 months) 10:30 AM

I can also offer group training classes in private communities and neighborhoods. It is a great way to introduce dogs to their neighbors and for humans to make friends!
