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 to help your dog learn basic behaviors, to make great decisions, and to 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!
Sorry, I have postponed all classes, including private lessons, until after 1/4/2021.
If you have a new puppy now or one on the way, please contact me, and I will see what I can do to help you get off to a good start during these crazy times. (Also, please check out articles from Julie Bond's blog that are listed below.)
All classes are held outdoors in the parking lot behind

(this is not the American Legion Hall.)
Classes will be smaller and shorter.
Masks, social distancing, and registration are mandatory.
Although grass is cushier, a paved surface with little foot traffic
