    I have a black lab who is a year and a half. I am interested in training him better even though he has the basics. When does the next session start and how much is it? Thanks!

    Hi! I have a pit bull mix, I believe that she is around 4-5 years old (she’s a rescue, we’ve have her for 3 years). She knows how to sit, lie down, roll over, and stay. My concern is that when we have her sit for a treat she is for the most part calm but then we give the treat to her (which she takes very gently) but then dashes away! I want to train her not to do that. Also, sometimes we’ll tell her to sit and she sits but then stands back up. She will stay and as you are backing slowly out of the room and disappear around the corner saying stay the entire time, she will come running over looking for me. So she kind of knows the basics but isn’t a complete pro at them. I would also like to train her better on walking. What course would you recommend for her.

    When does the next class start for puppies 5 months and up? My standard poodle is 5 months old. She knows to walk on the leash OK well as ‘sit’ and ‘lay down’ and is learning ‘leave it’, but is excitable.
