Group Dog Training Classes

We’re Back!

Our group dog training classes are back! With the risk of Covid on the decline and vaccines on the rise, we feel it’s safe to resume classes and couldn’t be more excited. Below is a look at upcoming classes, but be sure to check back regularly or call us for updates.

Classes are developed by our Karen Pryor certified trainers, and meet every week (unless otherwise noted) from 7-8pm in our facility. Course fee is $150 unless otherwise noted. Group classes may not be appropriate for dogs with behavioral issues, such as reactivity, aggression, or separation anxiety, to other dogs. If you aren’t sure if group class is right for you, feel free to contact our trainers at training@uptownpupindy.com or 317-749-0728.
