Please note – Puppy Class is separate from our Good Dog Manners program. This class is specially designed for your puppy in the earliest stages of social development. Our fun and dynamic puppy class focuses exclusively on puppy issues and your puppy's individual success. You'll learn how to solve puppy behavior problems (including mouthing, chewing and potty training) and how to prevent serious problems that could develop down the line. You’ll also learn to teach basic manners (sit, down, coming when called plus beginner stay and walking on leash). This is an exciting time for you and your puppy and early learning is a crucial part of puppy development. Puppy Class at Rover Oaks Houston is available every Saturday from 9:30am-10:30am.

Good Dog Manners Program
The classes in our Good Dog Manners program are fun and interactive training classes for owners with dogs 4 months and older. Each class level introduces new and more advanced skills for both dogs and owners. Dogs move to the next level after they have demonstrated proficiency of specific skill requirements in their current level. Our flexible schedule allows for you and your pup to attend the classes at your level on different days, times, and even miss a week or two without falling behind, or attend more frequently enhancing your learning experience. This also benefits dogs by allowing them to learn at their own pace so they can spend time focusing on areas where they need the most help. Classes will maintain a size of approximately six students for that personal attention. Dogs and Humans attend all classes together. See below for a list of upcoming class dates!
4 Class Punch Card: $180
6 Class Punch Card: $300 + includes 1 complimentary private lesson!
10 Class Punch Card: $500 + includes 2 complimentary private lessons!

“We couldn't be happier with the staff and training we've received from Rover Oaks! My husband and I just completed our fourth round of obedience classes, and we are still amazed at the knowledge our trainer has shared with us.”
— Chris-Ann N.
“We had a great experience with puppy training and decided to expand and give a one-week Lodge & Learn a try while we were on vacation. Our pup, Josie, had a great time, learned a lot and was well cared for. We will definitely be back!”
— Mindy C.
“What a wonderful experience for our Doxie and ourselves. We chose to do a Lodge & Learn as we were on vacation out of the country for three weeks. They sent videos and pictures so we were able to see him while we were away. We came back to a beautifully trained, happy and healthy doggie. Well done!”
