"There are not many places in the bay that you can find puppy social with just the first vaccine. I’m glad that Orion offers social for young puppy to gain confidence"

They also offer puppy social for dogs under 10lbs only. My puppy is small and shy, but after a few puppy social, she’s not afraid anymore!


"Had a fun experience taking our dog Cookie here for her first puppy class. Feels like a well structured class that is still open and friendly to ask questions at. Looking forward to the other sessions"

Our 10-month old border collie just finished his 2 classes at Orion Dog Training with Dieuwke (Adolescent and adult manners and AKC trick). We had so much fun and learned a lot from Dieuwke, especially the AKC trick class. Dieuwke has a lot of props to allow us to explore close to 60 tricks in just 6 weeks. She not only showed us different approaches to help our dog learn a trick but also explained how we can modify the technique and apply it on more advanced tricks in the future. In the end, we earned the beginner, intermediate and advanced AKC dog trick titles! What an amazing trainer! Highly recommend Dieuwke's class."
