Path to Success Class - 4 Weeks (STF)

Positive Solutions for A Sound Beginning

Path to Success Class

This class is perfect for dogs of any age or health concern. It is not an obedience class - we are all about behavior. It is based in positive and humane science to ensure that the human-animal bond is started off on the right path.

We teach you to recognize when your dog is uncomfortable or anxious AND what you CAN do to help then gain confidence and reduce stress. It is perfect for newly adopted dogs as well as first-time pet parents.


Classes are one-hour long and meet for four consecutive weeks on the same day/time. The first class – ORANGE – is virtual from the comfort of your own home. The next three classes of YELLOW, BLUE, GREEN are IN-PERSON
