Group Dog Training Classes

Our group dog training classes are social, engaging, and information-rich. With courses for all ages and skill levels, these are some of the most popular dog training classes in Indianapolis.

Courses meet once/week for 4 weeks, unless otherwise noted.
Our teacher-student ratio is 1:3 or better, and a 5 dog maximum so you receive consistent, valuable instruction.
