Training Classes

We are excited to offer a selection of group training classes in our facility located inside Pooch Palace:

35 Beck Lane, Suite 101 B
Lafayette, IN 47909

Classes will be limited to 6-8 dogs and will focus on positive pro-active interactions, life skills and relationship building. Our goal is to help you help your dog become as emotionally and mentally healthy as possible while building a strong relationship between you.

Most classes are typically 60-minute sessions that run for 4 weeks. Our Foundation classes include Puppy Start Right Pre-School for puppies under 14 weeks of age and our Life Skills classes for all dogs over 14 weeks of age.

Our Foundation Classes are unique in that they run in a rotational format that allows you and your dog to start at any time.

Al a carte classes will begin this summer including our Vetphobia class (for dogs that are afraid of the veterinary hospital).
