Positive Reinforcement Schools

Information on Schools and Trainers
Recommended Group Training Classes
Group Training will expose your dog to other breeds in a controlled environment, and help your dog learn to respond to commands with distractions. We recommend group classes (not private) for retired greyhounds as this will help with your dog’s socialization while developing the skills you need to work with your dog for life.
