Our head trainer, Sandy Addona, along with Kristyn Frohock are force free trainers with a mission to spread humane and gentle training. We offer a range of training options from private in home, group classes, and 1-1 training while your dog is at daycare.
We aim to provide owners the best way to achieve their training goals, which extends beyond the session. Our focus is to not only train your dog, but educate owners and provide them with the skillset to communicate with their dogs and live their best life together here in Brooklyn!
Group classes are offered as a 6-week series to build repetition and confidence in your dog. Packages are available to customize your training needs. Contact us directly to schedule any type of private lesson and to sign up for our group puppy classes!

Puppy class is a great way to learn new skills, socialize your pup, and work around distractions. Each class will be for an hour and includes puppy play and training with owner. Training will be a mixture of manners, which can be various cues – such as sit, down, stay, come and impulse control exercises. The focus will be on learning how to communicate with your puppy and understand how they think and learn. This class will also teach you to read your dog’s behavior during play, their motivators and positive reinforcement techniques. We group classes based on age and skill set. Our all-levels group puppy class is for pups 5.5 months and younger. We also offer a session for pups 6 months – 1 years old new to group training.
If your pup excels in our all-levels series, your pup may move to the advanced class series. The main purpose for our continuous classes is to take what was taught in puppy class and make it more challenging with increased criteria and distractions. New tricks or simple agility tasks will be added on. If weather is permitting, classes will include outdoor work.
