At Philly Unleashed we believe that training your dog creates a special life long bond. Whether you have a good dog who just needs a bit of refinement, are a first time dog owner and need to start with the basics, or have a few specific behavior issues that need work, group classes are a great option! In a relaxed and informal setting, you and your canine companion will learn basic behavior lessons including how to sit, stay, come, and walk on a loose leash with the distraction of other people and their dogs in the room.
Find out which class is right for you by checking out our course offerings! Before the start of any class, all dogs must have proof of vaccinations and good health from their veterinarian. If you are new to training with Philly Unleashed, we require first coming to a free humans only orientation. These orientations will get you acquainted on what to expect during class as well as give you a chance to meet our trainers. You do not have to attend orientation at the location you plan on attending class. Our classes are designed to fit your needs and schedule. All of our obedience classes are run as a drop in style class, no need to make a six week commitment and worry about missing a class. Classes can be attended interchangeably at any of our locations. Sign up online to reserve your spot in any of your favorite classes, or a free orientation!
Puppy Club meets every Tuesday night at Companion Pet Hospital 1524 S 5th St Philadelphia at 6:30pm. Puppies under six months of age are welcome to attend. This is a drop-in class, so no need to pre register! This group allows for off leash supervised socialization with your puppy. During the class we focus on watching and learning puppy body language, we practice relaxation techniques, and manners. We also allow time to discuss those nuisance puppy behaviors that drive you nuts! These topics include: chewing, puppy biting, house breaking, crate training, the puppy crazies and the list goes on. We ask that puppies are considered in good health by a veterinarian and have started their course of vaccinations. The drop in fee is $15 – treats, water and trainer provided! Please contact Dana if you need more information.
