Group Classes

Whether you are starting from scratch or just need to brush up on some manners, these group classes are for you! Classes are kept small so that you and your dog receive personalized instruction when necessary. 

Group classes are a great way to teach your dog to behave in distracting environments, help them to learn that not every other dog they see is their new best friend or a threat to their well-being, and are a great starter for budding Canine Good Citizens and future visiting therapy dogs! Group classes will help you to learn how to handle your dog around other dogs, how to better communicate what you expect from your dog, and how to better read what your dog is trying to communicate to you through body language.

My next group classes will be held at Playtime Doggie Daycare (with one exception), located at 317 Windsor Highway (Behind Tiger Schulmann's Martial Arts), New Windsor, NY 12553. The Wednesday class will be held at the Hudson Valley Veterinary Hospital, located at 273 Windsor Highway, New Windsor, NY. There are 6 sessions scheduled, each an hour long, and 2 make up sessions (each 30 minutes long) if you are unable to attend one of our regular sessions. If these classes fill I will schedule additional classes!

  • Saturday sessions will begin on November 5th at 10:00AM

Canine Good Citizen Classes: If I receive enough interest in this class, I will announce new class times. If you would like to join this class (and already have some basics under your belt) please contact me so I can determine if your dog is ready for this step in training! At the end of the 6 week course, a test will be held to show what you and your dog have learned, and what you may still need to work on. Not sure what the CGC is? Follow this link to learn more!

The cost for group class is $150.00, and is payable by Cash, Credit Card, PayPal, and Venmo @Stasia-FinleyCPDT. The cost of the class must be paid in full by the start of the first lesson. The fee is non-refundable, but may be transferred to private lessons if necessary.

Covid-19 (Corona Virus) Policies and Procedures: As an immunocompromised person, and someone with an asthmatic daughter, I have been very cautious as we all navigate through this pandemic. As places reopen and we all try to find a new normal, I am beginning to see clients again, and am reopening my group classes as well. I am still practicing social distancing, frequent hand washing, teach outside when possible, and the facility where my classes are held inside is sanitized as well.
