Welcome

I set up the training program at Dogworks to help owners navigate the unique challenges of raising their dog in the urban environment. Dogs in the city tend to be our constant companions hence we need to teach our dogs to walk comfortably at our side as well as navigate greetings inside stores, around other dogs, when they approach children, or when they visit the local dog park.

Our training programs offer group and private classes utilizing positive-based techniques to teach all the core commands which make training a fun activity for you and your dog. Garrett's Bio

  Dog Walks and Running Sessions

I offer private or semi-private walks for owners looking for individualized attention for their dog.

My walks are designed to give your dogs exercise and not just pee-breaks. They include trips to the dog run, other area parks and running sessions -- whatever you'd like.

  Behavior Consultations

Does your dog have a few issues? Do they hate being alone? Do they bark and lunge at other dogs or strangers? Are they getting into frequent fights at the dog park or bothering your neighbors with nuisance barking? Fixing problem behaviors can be a great way to forge a positive relationship with your dog and help them overcome their stress to lead a more balanced, comfortable life. Learn More

 

  Basic Obedience Class


Basic Obedience is the foundation of all training. In this course you learn the fundamentals of positive based training including the core commands of sit, down, stay, come and heel. Read the class outline.

 

  Intermediate Classes

Intermediate Obedience builds off the foundation of basic obedience with a stronger emphasis on teaching your dog to walk comfortably by your side. In this class dogs learn to focus on your commands no matter what and listen to you whether you're across the room or at a distance. Read the class outline.

 

  Private Lessons

Dogworks specializes in positive based training geared to create a balanced dog in your home as well as teaching you the skills to have your dog walk comfortably on leash. Our classes not only train you to train your dog but also provide a curriculum and homework (called "set-ups") to practice throughout the week to teach your dog these skills in everyday life.
