Group Training

Small group classes for dogs or puppies in San Diego

In-person group classes aren’t available at this time. However, due to high demand, group classes taught via Zoom will begin in early August, 2021. Students in online classes who live in San Diego and have puppies are encouraged to connect with others Woof students for independent socialization outside of class, guided by what we learn together.

Important notes about in-person group classes

In-person group classes are paused at this time.

  • Aversive training tools such as choke chains or prong collars are not allowed in any class or private training session. Learn more about the use of punishment and aversive training tools on the Resources page.
  • Dogs must have a 4′-6′ fixed-length leash available (no retractable leashes).
  • It’s important that dogs or puppies who enroll in group classes be comfortable around other dogs and around people. Classes require dogs to be near each other and the humans in class for an hour at a time, and dogs who are scared or reactive around others will likely feel overwhelmed in a group class, which would be counter-productive to their learning and socialization efforts. If you are not sure your dog will be comfortable around others in class, please let Erin know. To learn more about proper socialization for adult dogs, visit the Resources page.
  • Pet Me Please is a pet supply store, located on Adams Avenue in Normal Heights.
