Dog Training Services

Barkeley K-9 University offers lessons for puppies and adult dogs for basic and advanced obedience in your home or nearby park.

group classes


You’ll participate in the training lessons most of the time, Patrick will occasionally handle your dog to provide hands on demonstration.
This is a commitment of about one hour per session. There may be need for a lesson to go longer than one hour in order to complete the information needed but there is no charge for this extra time.
To optimize your return on investment of time and money, I’ll ask you to practice with your dog for 20 minutes daily between sessions.
