Dog Training Classes

Canine Co-stars offers a variety of dog training classes. Whether you just want to socialize your puppy, improve your dogs manners or help your dog start a career in film we have a class for you.

While Bonnie's purpose in developing these classes was to help clients  train & develop great movie dogs so that she has a roster of trained dogs  to pull from when she is casting projects. It turns out that the same things that make great movie dogs just happen to make just great dogs. Dog that have learned boundaries and manner and have developed a love of both working and learning make great family members too.

These classes will  teach you the skills to train your dog and improve it's performance.  Bonnie will teach you how to give commands, when and how to praise, how to read your dog and how to use your body posture and movement to help you speak a language your dog understands.

Bonnie's training methods are based on positive-reinforcement - her goal is to develop happy, confident, obedient dogs.
