Dog Training with Jessica


Scallywags offers three levels of training to meet each pets needs. Classes meet for 60 minutes weekly for 6 weeks and class sizes are limited. This is a small group class that will help your dog become accustomed to working through distractions without becoming overwhelmed.


Beginner training

In this introductory training course, you and your dog will strengthen your bond as you learn fundamental skills. These include: their name, focus, sit, down, stay, come, and leave it. We will also go over how to deal with any problem behaviors including but not limited to jumping, potty training, and inappropriate greetings. It is appropriate for all dogs even if they have already had some training. 


Intermediate training

In this six week training course we will continue to build your bond as we work on the three D’s: distance, duration, and distraction. This course will better prepare your dog for real world situations. We will also learn two new commands: place and heel. It is appropriate for all dogs who have had some form of basic obedience training. 


Advanced training

In this course we will continue to work with the three D’s to strengthen behaviors to provide faster & more consistent responses & improve reliability.

Canine good citizen evaluation 

The benefit of the CGC program is having a polite and well-behaved dog who can accompany you to many places. For example, CGC training will make your dog a welcome and pleasant visitor in the homes of friends and family. Trips to the vet or groomer will be easier with CGC skills under your dog's belt.
