Group Classes

Group Classes- 6 Hours - $250

Group Class Locations will vary depending on summer/winter season. Due to COVID-19, chances with rain, and lack of indoor space there is no group classes from December till March. 

Would you like to teach your puppy or adult dog basic obedience in a group setting? Kanine Freedom offers a 6 session, hourly, weekly class to train in a group setting. Group settings can be beneficial for all dogs and puppies because they get to practice their skills around other dogs and people. Kevin sends out educational handouts and videos to supplement class content. Behaviors such as reactivity, anxiety, or fear can be discussed with Kevin after class or through our private training programs.

What your puppy or dog will learn:

Weekend Socials

Four Paws Pet Ranch

3410 Guerneville Rd, Santa Rosa CA

Weekend socials are structured social activities where dogs can interact with people and dogs safely. There will be at least one trainer and two assistants supervising the socials to make sure dogs have a good time and don’t get overwhelmed. After coming to a social, you will have a exhausted and socialized dog so you can enjoy the remainder of your weekend.

  • ​Puppy/Small Dog Socials on Saturday mornings at 9am
  • Teenager Socials on Sunday mornings at 9am
  • Adult Dog Socials on Sunday mornings at 10am


  • Proof of vaccinations (Rabies, DHPP) for Kanines
  • Adult dogs (over a year old) must be evaluated ($60) by a trainer before participating in the socials if you have not done training with Kanine Freedom. If your dog passes the evaluation, there is an entry fee of $10 per social of which $5 is donated to the Countryside Rescue.
  • If you have done training with Kanine Freedom (group class, private lessons) participation in socials is no additional charge.
