Training Services

At Seigfreid Academy we strive to offer a solution to fit every situation.

Group Classes

We offer group training classes periodically at a variety of experience levels. Feel free to enquire anytime regarding our current or upcoming classes! 

All our group classes are structured on a week by week basis. That means it's important to be able to come to each week of class because it will build on the week before. Don't worry though, if you do miss a class we're always happy to work with you to make up the missed class time for free! (within reason, of course) Also, all our classes come with professionally developed homework handouts and practice charts so that you can get the most of your training experience!

Our class offerings include tailor made classes for puppies, first time adults, experienced canines, as well as advanced prep for distinctions like the AKC's Canine Good Citizen.

Done it all already? Enquire today about our continuing education courses for dogs who have mastered obedience training but still want a place to work in a structured environment with expert supervision.

Puppy Class-

    For dogs 5 months and younger, our puppy classes are designed to give your new family member the right start!

    Puppy class focuses on providing foundational behaviors such as potty training and leash manners while also providing a framework for learning cues.

    Classes last 6 weeks and meet once a week at the same time and on the same day each week.

Level 1-

    Level 1 is the introduction to training for dogs with little or no previous training who are over than 5 months old.

    In Level 1 we not only focus on building beneficial behaviors but on undoing bad habits which may have already formed while providing a structure for future learning which is both fun and effective for both you and your dog. In addition to teaching the behaviours for success that you and your dog need to be happy together,Level 1 also focus on the Juvenile behaviour stage (the 'teenage' period) as well as starting training for adult dogs.

New fun behaviours like bed and High Five are introduced. You learn useful and challenging games like Find It.
