If Your Asking Yourself What The Difference is Between Fun Dog Training and Fun Dog Training 2.0. The Answer is Pretty Simple.
Fun Dog Training Focuses Mostly On Private In Home Training With Behavior Modification. If You Are Experiencing Behaviors At Home That You Want To Modify, Then Private Training at Home Will Typically Yield The Best Results. It Can Be Difficult To Correct a Behavior Happening at Home, In a Group Setting.
Fun Dog Training 2.0 Mostly Focuses On Group Class Training. Group Classes Are a Great Solution For Dogs That Are Not Aggressive, That Need Socializing While Learning Basic & Advanced Commands. We Also Offer Fun Trick Group Classes & Rewarding Pet Therapy & CGC Group Courses.
Want The Best Of Both Private In Home & Group Training Courses? Your In The Right Place! All Private In Home Courses Include Group Classes For Free Upon Completion Of Private Training!
