Private or Group Lessons for Puppies Less than 4 months

I will come to your home or meet at a park, trail, or puppy friendly store. Your puppy will learn about real world situations in a safe and loving manner. You may choose to be present for lessons or not if you have other obligations. You may schedule individual visits, or purchase a package of six or twelve lessons at a reduced rate. Packages are located at the end of the scheduling page. If you prefer group classes you can register your sixteen week or younger puppy for lessons to be held at 127 Main Rd. Holden, Maine.

Tricks and Things - Reduced pricing for the month of July

Tricks and Things is our per session class for Gentle Canine. You can pay by the session or take advantage of our package deal. This is fun with purpose. Whether you want to build skills for dog sports, enhance your dogs manners, or promote a loving relationship with your dog, this class will do it. Dogs should be able to be in the same room with others without reactivity. A few barks at the beginning of class is okay.  This class is held at Uncommon Dog, formerly Renaissance Dogs, at 127 Main Rd, Holden.


In this class, you will learn how to gently promote the behaviors you need for life with your dog. We will handle the basics such as sit, down and stay, but you will also learn how to help your dog be comfortable around others. If your dog lunges at people or dogs while on lease, you should start with private lessons.
