Click Here to see our upcoming classes


DogStars offers two programs for dogs over five months old. Shine I is for dogs with little or no prior obedience training, while Shine II is tailored to graduates of Shine I and dogs who have received some basic obedience in the past, either from a previous group class or personal training at home.

Our Shine programs are 1 hour, 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.
