Dog Training for a Well-behaved Pet
Cloud Nine specializes in training dogs using gentle methods and effective, innovative techniques that result in satisfied, informed owners with happy, well-behaved dogs. We offer the most complete and personalized dog training experience in the Twin Cities. We are not a franchise; we are owner-operated, and we offer group classes, private lessons and workshops and social activities for you and your dog during the daytime, in the evenings and on weekends.
Two Locations: in Hopkins and New Hope!
We have two all-temperature controlled dog training facilities, with 3,000 square feet in Hopkins and more than 7,000 square feet at our "north" location in New Hope. Our students come from the nearby suburbs of Plymouth, Minnetonka, St. Louis Park, Bloomington, Eden Prairie and Maple Grove, and they also come from as far away as Chaska, Chanhassen, Eagan, Delano, St. Michael, and Lino Lakes! Look for the symbol on the schedule for classes and activities that are offered at our New Hope location.
We offer a full schedule of classes at both locations as well as a variety of activities and seminars for our students and their dogs to enjoy, including doggy gym (pre-agility fun), puppy play groups, small dog play groups, practice time for obedience, agility, Rally O, and teacup agility to name a few.
Puppy Classes, Therapy Dog Classes and More!
If you have a puppy that you want to grow into a well-mannered family pet; or a shy dog who could benefit from some confidence-building activities; or a rescued dog that shows signs of being a competitive performance partner; or a people-oriented dog with whom you would like to do therapy work; or a reactive dog whose behavior you would like to soften or even change, we can assist with all that and much, much more!
So join a Puppy Social Hour, attend obedience training lessons, drop in on a small dog play group, sign up for a weekend workshop, stop in for a visit, or just send Dawn an email. We would love to meet you and help you turn your puppy or dog into the canine companion you've always wanted!
