All Group Classes are conducted using our new safety protocols, including social distancing.

Adult Classes

At All About My Dog, we teach The Lisa Rockland Method, a unique behavior-based curriculum you won’t find anywhere else. Our method addresses the real-life issues you and your dog may be having as well as “traditional” and fun obedience learning.

Some people just teach tricks. Some people just teach behavior. We teach both.

Each of our foundation classes offers instruction appropriate to your dog’s age, stage of development and individual needs and behaviors. We’ll certainly teach you Come When Called, Sit, Down, Stay, Leave It, and all the other common obedience commands— but our ultimate goal is to help you create a dog that you can live with peacefully and happily. We want you to have a friend who can be a part of your family and all the fun things you do together: soccer games, the ferry, family gatherings, picnics in the park, camping, pet-friendly stores…anything and everything as long as you’re together!

Get Ready For Adult Class!

Our NEW SAFETY PROTOCOL must be followed for all classes:

  • Face masks are required for all staff and students.
  • 6 feet of physical distancing is required at all times — inside the facility and outside in the parking lot and on the pea stones. A max of two dogs may use the outside pea stone area at the same time.
  • Before class: Remain in your car until invited into class by your instructor. 
  • Leave all your belongings in your car. No bags or personal items of any kind are allowed inside the facility. Pockets only. We offer cookie pouches for sale.
  • Bring to class: A 6-foot leash and yummy dog treats only. No long leashes, no long toys.
  • Entering class: At the start of class, your instructor will invite each dog/handler team into the facility one at a time.
  • On entering the facility, trainers will direct students to a designated training space. Please proceed to the farthest open training space. Designated spaces satisfy social distancing requirements.
  • Class sizes are now reduced to allow for proper social distancing, and only one handler per dog will be admitted.
  • Class runs for 45 minutes to ensure a thorough cleaning of common surfaces between classes. 
  • No students are allowed in the facility during 15-minute cleaning intervals.
  • No dog-to-dog meets and greets are allowed before, during, or after class, inside the facility or outside. Unfortunately, no playtime.
  • Exiting class: At the end of class, your instructor will invite each dog/handler to exit the facility one at a time.
  • Required: Provide up-to-date medical records, including a negative fecal report stating “no parasites seen,” prior to your first class. (There are no refunds or make-ups for classes forfeited due to missing fecal records.) See our medical guidelines for more info.

Good Dog 101

ADULT 1:  7 MONTHS & UP

Good Dog 101 is fun, positive training designed to start you and your dog off on the right paw. Even if you’ve had your dog for a while, it’s never too late to start! You and your dog will learn Loose Leash Walking, Come When Called, Leave It, Stay and more. We will also answer questions about jumping on people, nutrition, exercise, and preventing unwanted behaviors like inappropriate chewing and barking – plus anything else you can think of. Class time will be set aside for socialization*, learning canine body language, and what is appropriate and what isn’t and how to make it right. How you communicate with your dog determines whether or not it will translate into the behavior you’re asking for. (*Unavailable due to social distancing.)

For extra socialization opportunities and to learn more about dog language and appropriate play you can also sign up for one of our Doggie Playgroups – a great compliment to your regular training class. (Unavailable due to social distancing.)
