Basic Obedience Training Classes

Here at Driftwood, we want to help you reach your goals with your pets.  If you are having any behavioral issues or simply want your dog to have some manners, we are here to help.  In our dog training classes, we can help you overcome the issues that you may be having and teach you how to train your dog. In doing so, we aim to deepen the bond between owner and dog.

We will be offering 2 sessions throughout the summer, the first having started on May 8th.

Second session begins on July 9th (Monday) and will be each Monday at 7:00pm for 8 weeks

Basic Training Graduation Day

Camryn Wiens, our trainer, has had 9 years of training experience and has worked with several well-known trainers in Lincoln and the surrounding areas.  She also has worked with dogs in other disciplines such as veterinary work, boarding and daycare, and grooming which has allowed her to expand her knowledge of dogs and practice her techniques.  She is also a student at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln studying animal science with a focus in companion animals.

She trains using balanced training methods that involve both rewarding the dogs for completing things that are asked of them, but also using corrections to remind them that the do need to listen, even in the presence of distractions.  The goal of her training method is to produce dogs that will listen to commands anywhere that you might be and in the presence of distractions.  In order to achieve this, she teaches fundamentals of dog behavior, which allows the owner to train their dog in a way that they can clearly understand.
