Private Sessions - sign up now!
Private sessions are available to help you and your dog reconnect or help them with behavioral issues or reactivity - 3 sessions for $150 donation on mutually agreed upon dates here at our shelter (2320 Pine Street). If your dog is reactive to other dogs, sign up for this option, NOT the group classes!! Reactive dogs in a group setting is stressful for them, the other dogs, and all handlers.
6 Week Training Sessions - Now CLOSED
Space is limited so sign up today! Classes are kept to 4 dogs per class so everyone will get a lot of personalized time. Dogs who are reactive to other dogs should NOT sign up for group classes. Instead, please sign up for private lessons here so everyone has a good experience and receive more out of the alotted time. Group Sessions are intended to help you and your dog reconnect, bond, and learn basic obedience such as commands, leash walking, and more. Reactive dogs in a group setting are stressed and stress out others, leaving everyone with a poor experience.
All classes are held outside in our play yards.
Classes are held at:
Stray Rescue of St. Louis
2320 Pine Street
St. Louis, MO 63103
Fall Sessions 1 begin the week of 9/5 and run through mid-October and are now SOLD OUT.
