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!

Some classes are slightly larger, and masks are required again. 


NEW PUPPY ORIENTATION -- for new puppy owners or

soon-to-be owners. This class meets without puppies--so you can attend before your pup is 10 weeks old. And, it is easier to concentrate!

 I discuss management, house training, and biting. 

This orientation is offered every 2 or 3 weeks, so please check the class calendar for the next session. 

Puppy and Manners classes start every few weeks.

Special classes will start periodically on Tuesday & Wednesday evenings.

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 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.
