Click Here to see our upcoming classes

DogStars offers two programs for dogs over five months old. Shine I is aimed at dogs with little or no prior obedience training, while Shine II is tailored to graduates of Shine I and dogs who have received basic obedience in the past.

Our Shine programs are once a week for six weeks, and we teach according to our philosophy of animal safety and positive reinforcement. In keeping with this outlook, all dogs are required to have proof of vaccinations.

Shine I

In a group training environment, you and your dog will learn:

  • Basic obedience, including sit, come, stay, down
  • Walking properly on a leash, with distractions
  • Phasing our treat rewards
  • Social skills with other dogs
  • How to address problematic behaviours such as barking and jumping up
