Cape-Able Canines will not train your dog for you; we will train YOU to train your dog.

We believe that learning is a lifelong process - for people and dogs.

Experts have established that the more socialized a dog is at an early age, and the earlier training is initiated, the more stable the dog will be for the duration of his or her life.

Cape-Able Canines offers puppy classes for dogs from 3 to 6 months of age. Our General Obedience classes are for dogs 6 months of age to thirteen years…and older. You can teach an old dog new tricks!

We believe that training is an on-going process that continually enriches the relationship between owner and dog, so we offer a variety of advanced and specialty classes to help make training fun for dogs and owners. We use gentle lure and positive reinforcement methods.  

Who needs obedience classes?

If you own a dog - or hope to own a dog - you can benefit from classes! Even experienced dogs and their handlers profit from the structure of a class. Effective trainers take classes to learn and practice new techniques, and to give their dogs the benefit of additional socialization.

Classes give you renewed motivation to train independently, and a public place to "boast and brag" - to show off what your dog has learned. If you've taken an obedience class before, you know that you need to work with your dog on an on-going basis, but you may not be able to ever quite find the time.

Rather than feeling guilty about what you should be doing, you can enroll in a class and guarantee that your dog will be getting practice, socialization and quality time with you at least once a week!
