Busy families that need flexibility in scheduling and individuals that may only need some guided assistance on one or two particular behaviors. Whether you just have a couple questions or concerns that could be addressed in one class or you don't have time to commit to a 5-week course, these classes provide valuable opportunities to train and bond with your dog in the presence of a skilled PAWS instructor.

Socialization Class                                    1 Hour                        $5/per class
