Looking for better behavior from your dog? Our dog training classes can help!

Whether you’re just bringing home your new puppy, or looking to turn your adult dog’s behavior around, dog training classes with Midcoast Dog Training give dog owners the skills to thrive with their dogs.

What We Can Help With

Focus/Attention and Name Response:

We’ll help your dog learn to respond to their name and improve their focus on your cues.

Loose Leash Walking:

Let us help you teach your dog to walk calmly by your side, putting an end to leash pulling during your walks.

 Down:

Let’s teach your dog to master the “down” cue, ensuring they can relax in various situations.

Touch:

We’ll help your dog become more responsive with the “touch” cue, a great skill for redirecting their attention.

Place Training:

Place training creates a designated spot for your dog to settle, fostering impulse control and peaceful coexistence.

Sit-Stay, Down-Stay:

We can lay the foundation for polite behavior with “sit-stay” and “down-stay,” essential safety.

Leave It:

Let us help your dog learn to “leave it” when tempted by distractions, keeping them safe and sound.

Recall:

Our training ensures your dog comes to you reliably when called, promoting freedom during off-leash adventures.
