Community Canine is for dogs who are ready to test their skills out in the community! We expose them to real-world distractions and temptations by bringing them to places like Main Street, Lowes, pet stores, along the walking path, past the dog park, etc. where they will meet strangers and other dogs on their travels. They will have 5 sessions with the trainer in the community and the 6th with the owner. Dogs are welcome to take the CGC test at the end of the 6 weeks.
6 Day Pass = $340
All dogs need to go through a thorough interview process, fill out an application and be up-to-date on all vaccines before starting at Blue Dog.

Great Pyrenees/Border Collie mix, Ossie, came to us for Day School to address trust issues with strangers and to increase his overall obedience around distractions. After graduating Day School, he enrolled in Community Canine and gained confidence in public settings.
"Brooke is truly outstanding in her ability to not only provide consistent and great training, but helps owners, like me, to reinforce good behavior with specific instructions.
My dog's behavior with strangers is now completely different than it used to be. He is more confident and willing to do the things I ask of him. For me, it is now a pleasure to take him places where he will meet people. The staff at Blue Dog have been wonderful. I am very grateful for the care that he receives. The training is awesome. He has made progress over a short period of time and in a way that I can participate in, and know that when he goes to training, I can expect results, and I am very pleased with those results."
