Our Classes

Want a well-behaved dog?

Join a class in agility, obedience, nose work or tricks! Your dog needs exercise – both body and mind – to be their best. That’s why our motto is, “A tired dog is a good dog!” We also offer specialty classes for excitable jumpers, reactive rovers and active seniors.

Spot On K9 Sports dog training helps your dog succeed, whether you’re dreaming of a family companion or a performance champion.

Specialty

We have a class for all your dog’s needs, from behavior issues like Reactive Rover to public manners like Downtown Hound, to the life-saving skills of Really Reliable Recall.

Agility

Exciting and good exercise, dogs burn off energy and build confidence navigating an obstacle course; for fun or competition.

Nosework

Our program is a recreational version of what professional bomb- and drug-detection dogs do; it's instinctive and dogs of all ages are welcome.

Obedience

From Puppy Kindergarten to Canine Good Citizen, we offer obedience classes for all ages.

paw5

Tricks

Whether entertaining or practical, tricks build body awareness and brain power for all ages, from puppy to senior.

Individual, one-on-one Help

Private Training

Some dogs learn best with private lessons or need help with behaviors at home. Private training is customized and convenient to your schedule. In-home training packages available.
