Online Dog Training 

For City Dogs

If you're here, you probably want to train your dog to be confident in the city 

Dog class is fantastic, which is why I created one.
Training a city dog is more than just learning to sit and shake. Your puppy also needs to socialize and train for real life, where environments change and distractions are guaranteed. 

Guiding You From Puppyhood to City Dog

Here's the thing:
Training a dog for home is relatively easy.
Training to take a dog into public is often where the challenge lies. 
Dogs don't just become confident with age, it's up to us to make it easier for them through training and socialization, that's where we come in. 
Working Canine Club offers online classes and in-person training in the Greater Seattle area so your puppy can happily and healthily navigate public and private spaces with ease.

At this point, you may be asking...

Is this course for me? Are we a good fit?


Here's more information to help you decide:

Finding classes and support that resonates with you and your pup is everything. I'm not here to tell you that my suggestions are the best or the only way, and truthfully I'm still learning all of the time.

This course and community is for people wanting to take their dog into public and private spaces. 

This program IS right for you if....

  • You want to train your dog to behave in public

  • Want to take your dog to work

  • Want an all-around amazing dog whom your friends wish was theirs

Feel Confident and Empowered

With Your Dog By Your Side 

I believe that whether you are in bed watching a show, or at a brewery with your friends (and 130 other people), life is better with a happy and well-trained dog, especially when you have a trusting relationship.






  • confident and relaxed in the city
  • calmly greets others
  • potties when you ask them to
  • provide support for their owner
  • responds reliably to commands
  • soothing even in large groups
  • chill at the brewery
  • able to nonchalantly pass others on the street 
  • trustworthy off-leash at the campsite

Traditional dog class is great for dogs staying at home, however, training a dog navigating the city needs to occur in many environments. If your dog can do a "sit" or come to you in dog class, but not listen in a scenario where it might really count, then how valuable is that training for you?


Working Canine Club stands alone as your foundational dog class for taking your dog into public and/or private spaces. These videos are available around the clock (as long as you have internet) so you can review the material at your convenience.

What people are saying:

Laura T. 

Emerald is excellent with dogs. I couldn't speak more highly of him. He has worked with our two dogs, ages 2.5 years and 7 months. He brought his background of dog training and his caring attitude into working with our dogs and I couldn't be happier.

Chelsea, M.

Emerald is extremely loving, professional and skilled when it comes to caring for and training dogs. We're really grateful for his service and continue to use the course regularly now.
