Dog Sport Foundations

Advanced

(Dog Sport Foundations)

This class provides an introduction to a variety of engaging dog sport skills including rally, tricks, agility, competition obedience, and scent work.

Each class is designed so you and your dog will learn foundation skills for these fun dog sports that can become a lifelong hobby.

Please Note: We get a lot of requests / enquiries  regarding private training or board-and-train options and unfortunately these are not services we offer at this time (or in the foreseeable future).   Nor are we able to recommend a reliable trainer who does one-on-one training with aggressive or reactive dogs. We do strongly recommend our online Foundation Obedience ONLINE course  for dogs that are not suited for group classes.

What Our Students Say

The Super dog obedience class at TNT was the first group class I’d ever taken with my dog and I was nervous. Fortunately, I had no need to worry. The instructor quickly learned the strengths and weaknesses of each dog/handler team and helped us work through any problems. The class was a great mix of more serious training combined with fun games that put the skills we were learning into practice. Because the class size was small, we all got individual attention. I would highly recommend this class to everyone if you want a better-behaved dog!

Becky Hemphill & Cairo

I just want to comment on the positive atmosphere at TNT and the innovative methods utilized that help engage my dog and keep him focused. They make the sessions fun, which greatly helps keep my dog motivated and wanting to train. He is very energetic and easily distracted, yet the experienced instructors help me maintain his attention throughout, by offering individualized instruction and different approaches when necessary. I have used other training facilities in the past and highly recommend TNT to all dog owners looking to make the most of the training experience. I am currently taking classes and the instructor is wonderful, understanding, and very helpful!

Nancy Fitch & Cooper

TNT Training classes are a pleasure to attend.  My dog Pearl gets so excited.  I think because the training is so positive and fun for her and me. I like the fact the instructor makes time to address questions and challenges and always has workable suggestions. The training center is great so bright, clean, and airy.
