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!

Dogs at Play: Good, Bad, and Warning Signs


Ever wondered what dog play is all about? Does canine play have to be fair and balanced?  How can you tell if you should step in and stop a play session? Is it okay for dogs to play rough with each other? Do adult dogs still want to play?

Join us for this special 50-minute seminar where we will explore and decipher dog body language during play. The seminar meets two times. 

We allow 8 dogs to enroll in this class; 4 will attend one weekend to play, and the other 4 will attend the following weekend. (We will assign which week your dog comes.) You may also attend the class without a dog. 

Saturday, 4/30 & 5/7, at 10:00 am

Enroll WITH Your Dog

Enroll WITHOUT Your Dog

For all classes, dogs must be at least 10 weeks old and in your home for at least 10 days.
