In my experience, many behavior issues with dogs are rooted in poor communication and misunderstanding your dog's behaviors. I conduct behavior assessments in your home and devise individual training plans for you and your pet(s).

Group Training Classes: Basic commands and communication.
In partnership with the Humane Society of Amherst County, Camp Merricks is offering a six-week basic training class for owners and their dogs. This class is designed to teach you how to better communicate with your dog, understand why they behave the way they do and teach basic skills and manners. At the end of the class you should have some tools to improve your dog's behavior and your relationship.
The class will be limited to a maximum of 12 owner & dog teams. Selection of students will be made on a first-come, first-served basis, taking into account class diversity (age and size of dogs).
This is NOT a puppy class. This is designed for dogs 6 months of age and older. A puppy class will be offered in the spring if there is demand for one.
