About Group Classes

The Puppy Nanny offers small 

group training classes for puppies as young as 10 weeks of age and Good Manners classes for adult dogs. We also offer  Nose Work and Control Unleashed classes..


Puppy, Good Manners and Just 

The Basics classes are held as open enrollments classes. This means that once you have attended the Saturday Orientation, you can usually start with your puppy or dog the 

following week.

Nose Work Classes

Nose Work is a great sport that challenges your dog to use his favorite sense to find specific odors. 

We offer Nose Work training 

for fun and competition.


Intro to Odor is a private class. Once a dog is working on odor, I will try to put you in a group at your level.


Check out the Scent Work Training tab for more information.


Call or email Sue for Nose Work info.

Control Unleashed Classs

Control Unleashed is a program 

to help dogs that get overexcited 

by other dogs, people, or almost any stimulus. The program uses "pattern games" and calming exercises to 

help the dog learn to focus more 

on the handler and be calmer 

around his triggers.


Control Unleashed classes are offered from time to time. You can also work with Sue in a private CU lesson.


Sue is a Certified Control Unleashed Instructor.
