Family dogs, in our community, have a lot of requirements -- to be good in the house, play nicely with kids, play well with dogs, not bark too much, walk nicely on a leash--just to name a few! Most of these qualities are really learned skills.
AdobeDogs teaches you to use positive training (and food) to help your dog learn basic manners as well as cues, make great decisions, and be calm in many situations. The result is a trusting, happy, well-behaved canine companion.
Molly's AdobeDogs will help you enjoy training your great community dog!
Right after I sent out the class update, I learned that they are finally going to complete the construction project in the room that we use for classes at the American Legion Hall. This could start as early as December and will take up to 7 weeks. I have closed many of the short classes scheduled for December due to uncertainty.
I am still trying to work out a plan, but I think that I will be able to hold the Puppy Preschool class and the Manners & Minding 1 class on Saturday or Sunday. We may add an additional "upper level" class. Then, our regular schedule should resume around February. I will send out another update as soon as we have the issues worked out.
Thank you for your patience. Marina and I still will be available for private lessons.
For all classes, dogs must be at least 10 weeks old and in your home for at least 10 days.
Please check out the Class Calendar
to see the current schedule.
If you have a new puppy now or one on the way, please contact
Molly@adobedogs.com to find out about classes or private lessons. Please include your pup's breed, when your pup is coming home, and your pup's birth date.

These 3 classes are the basics for a great community dog, and we start new sessions every few weeks.
Check the List of Current Classes for class and registration information.
PUPPY PRESCHOOL-Start off right-- start this class as soon as your pup is 10 weeks old and has been in your home for at least 10 days. Part support group/part training class. If you have a new puppy and don't see a class starting within 10 days, please email me at Molly@AdobeDogs.com.
MANNERS & MINDING 1--Your pup is still a work in progress. This class is for "teenagers" who are 4 to 8 months old.
BASIC MANNERS FOR COMMUNITY DOGS--For dogs 6 months or older who haven't had any basic training or may need a refresher course. Great class for rescue dogs.
