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!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
And, an Omicron update.
As of today, 1/10/22, I am not starting any new classes until after 1/21/22. If you are currently enrolled in a class that has been meeting or is supposed to start before then, you should have received an email from me with an update.
There are no classes scheduled for 1/15 and 1/19 due to room availability.
I will post an update around 1/20. Thank you for your patience!!!!

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.
