Our Group Puppy Training Classes are designed to benefit the social development of your puppy while enhancing their bond with you. In class puppy parents will learn to develop happy, mannerly, well-socialized adult dogs and to make the most of their pup’s potential. Our training approach is dog friendly, gentle, effective, enjoyable, and designed to be mastered by all members of the family, kids included.


Increase your puppy’s confidence and calmness by exposing them to new objects, sounds and experiences.


Teach you and your puppy basic obedience behaviors and how to handle common, unwanted puppy behaviors.


Socialize your puppy using structured, off-leash play time with the other puppies in the class.

What our customers say

Crystal and her training programs at Ruff House are awesome! My Sasha and I have gone through her puppy program and a little private training, which has all laid a solid foundation for me in responsible dog ownership.
Ruff House is a pleasure to work with. Ariel came to our home and helped train me and my pup to manage greetings at the doorway. My Kona is 9 years old and she has learned how to wait with an open door several feet away.
Crystal is an excellent trainer and all around wonderful person. All of her family dogs are very well behaved/trained. It is obvious that she understands what/how a dog is thinking, and her training stems from this, making it very effective. Positive reinforcement is her concentration, and it is pleasing to see her work with dogs.
I can't thank Crystal enough for showing us how to turn our shelter dog, Rain, into a very well-behaved and obedient companion. When we got Rain, she was not only completely untrained on any basic command but also very reactive to other dogs. We saw huge improvements after just a few sessions with Crystal.
