WHY A STEP CLASS?

What Ed Blakeslee of Oradell NJ says:
"There is structure but with flexibility to address individual situations. 
I think of  Step 1 as a Montessori program for dogs.  We plan to go to Step 2 when we are ready."

 BECAUSE  A Step Class is Geared To Your Busy Lifestyle.  

BECAUSE  You Can Start Any Week - Never Wait For A New Class To Begin.

BECAUSE  You Get The Opportunity To Learn The How To Get The Dog You Want.  To Finding Out Why You Are Having Problems.
