How our Day School program works

3 Steps to a Better Behaved Dog

Our private dog training Day School program has three parts:


Initial Consult

Every package begins with a 60 minute initial consultation. $200, payable via venmo to @Petagogy

If you want to meet Karin and bring your puppy over, you must understand that there are unvaccinated puppies in Karin's front yard all the time and accept that there is a risk of parvo exposure.


We train you and your dog

Sessions are entirely in Karin's front yard. You will attain a comprehensive grasp of canine learning theory, basic dog first aid and obedience.

You will learn how to build new behaviors up from scratch.


You and Your pup Graduate

After 19, half hour long, follow up sessions your dog will have learned at a minimum

  • Sit
  • Come
  • Down
  • Go To Bed
  • Leave it
  • Drop it
  • Loose Leash Walking

Karin also includes fun tricks for you and your pup to learn each session.


Sidewalk School

Karin trains folks with new puppies, folks who've never had a dog before on the basics and works with folks with dogs who have mild reactivity.

Karin does not work aggression cases, but is more than happy to refer you to someone stellar to meet your needs.

Sidewalk Puppy School


Karin is a wonderful dog/people trainer.

We inherited an adorable poodle mix who needed some positive training. Turns out, Karin was also really good at giving us the tools we needed to help our pup. I highly recommend her for all of your doggie needs.
