Group Dog Training Classes

We offer One of a kind Group Dog Training Classes that stay true to the Backcountry K-9 Training Brand

In our plans to change the way we are training, we want to abandon the boring indoor dog group class where everything is structured and and problems are not being solved and clients are not getting one on one attention. Our group dog training classes take place outside in many different locations.The locations are usually parks in the lower Hudson valley area. Some group classes we offer are:

  • Basic Manners($120 per dog) 4 weeks: focuses on dogs learning the basic commands and loose leash walking.
  • Off-leash Backcountry Buds($300 per dog) 5 weeks: This group class is only open to those who have completed basic manners group and focuses on being off leash with our dogs and being safe for the dog and the nature around them. There is an additional cost for this class as well.

We regularly post about what group classes are being offered and where we will be meeting on our Facebook Page . Hurry space is limited in classes to a minimum of 5 dogs and a max of 7 dogs. More information about pricing and what the class includes is available by Contacting us.
