We can train your dog or you can train him, you choose. 


Group Obedience Classes



This positive, reward based training class is for beginner level dogs and puppies of any age but if they are a puppy, they must have 3 sets of puppy shots to attend.  


Do you feel like your new dog or puppy is trying, but you are not effectively training or communicating?  Do you feel like your dog has selective hearing?  We can help.


Would you like your dog to learn:


  • Let's go - loose leash walking
  • heel with change of pace
  • sit and automatic sit
  • down
  • stay in all three positions
  • stand for examination
  • recall - come
  • meet and greet politely
  • and much more... 


If you know you would benefit from a training class with a sense of humor that teaches you how to train your dog humanely then sign up today.


Choose which one works for you but don't wait there are only 8 spaces in each class


6 week class, 1 hour per class. 


Class fee: $195.

Intermediate Obedience Class


Intermediate Obedience is the next step after successfully completing a beginner obedience class.  If you are seeing results in your dog from our basic obedience class and don't want to stop the learning momentum this is the class for you.  This class will begin to introduce off lead work by adding more distance and distractions while they are working in a controlled scenario. Please note, this class will not teach your dog to be reliable off leash by the end of the 6 weeks but will teach you some elements of off leash training to start your journey.  (Your dog will not be off leash during class time) You can use these skills to work toward obtaining your Canine Good Citizen Test through the AKC. 



Next Class:


Tuesday 7/9/24 8-9am 


At Green Gait, 7029 Hwy 40, Ocala, FL 34482
