Group Classes

Due to the current health situation, Sit Stay and Beyond is only offering online Manners and Obedience classes until it is safe for group events.

Nose Games, Reactive Rover and physical Manners and Obedience Classes will be available again later this year.

Beginner Manners and Obedience

There is a 6 dog limit for every class. Dogs must be at least 4 months old. 2 handlers max per dog.

This class covers basic manners and obedience cues every family dog needs. Learn to station your dog for a great stay, address impulse control for loose leash walking and leave it, and teach obedience cues such as sit, down and stay.

Classes are rolling enrollment, so you can get started anytime! No need to wait for the next “round” of classes. See our calendar below for our class schedule for 2020.

Beginner Nose Games

10:45-11:45am on Saturdays – 4 weeks

Spring II: Apr 11, Apr 18, May 2, May 9

Summer II: Aug 15, Aug 22, Aug 29, Sep 12

There is a 5 dog limit for every class. Dogs must be at least 4 months old. 1 handler max per dog.

Nose games use your dog’s natural abilities to search, detect and alert to scents. In this fun introductory class, your dog will learn to navigate an obstacle course of senses to find the right scent. This is perfect for indoor enrichment and a great way to boost confidence in dogs.

Unfortunately due to the short class schedule, missed classes cannot be made up.

Creve Coeur Residents: $90
Non Residents: $100

Reactive Rover

Dates TBD

There is a 6 dog limit for every class. Dogs must be at least 4 months old.

This unique class is designed for dogs who over-react to other dogs or people on leash. If your dog whines, lunges, pulls, growls or tenses up around other people or dogs, this class will teach you and your dog how to safely and calmly handle these situations.

This class is taught by two certified dog trainers in a small class setting (4-6 teams) in a 7-week course that includes a seminar on behavior modification and dog body language.

In order to qualify for class, dogs must pass an assessment to determine if the Reactive Rover class is appropriate for the dog. To get started, fill out the interest form by clicking on the “Fill Out an Interest Form” button.

Assessment: $75/$85
Class – $300/$310
* Creve Coeur residents get a $10 discount

IMPORTANT

If your dog is aggressive, reactive, or very fearful, this group classes would not be a good fit for you. If your dog needs behavioral modification, private lessons may be a better fit. Please contact us if you are not sure if your dog would do well in class.

If your dog is excessively vocal, you may be asked to leave the class space. We understand that a group class setting may be very exciting or stressful to some dogs. However, an excessively vocal dog may significantly impair other teams’ learning. If your dog is barking excessively, you may be asked to work in a separate area away from the other teams.

Get Started

After you register for the class, you will receive an email with your enrollment form and short questionnaire about your dog. If you have any questions, please contact us or call 314-480-5675.
