Intermediate Classes- is In an effort to provide the most complete training to all of our class participants we will also be offering more advanced classes. These classes are by demand and can vary. The first intermediate class will be for the graduates of STAR Puppy and CGC. 

We are very fortunate to have a passionate, qualified individual as our trainer. Megan will be happy to talk about any pet situation. She is always willing to do private assessments at The Pet Clinic of Urbana to provide the most complete training plan for your pet. Megan is also qualified in rally, agility, and many other training categories. Look for additional classes being added constantly. 

Come join the fun in our Puppy Preschool class!

Our dog trainer will take you and your little student through basic manners, potty training troubles, leash walking, commands and much more. We keep class sizes small so that each puppy and owner gets individualized attention and we address specific concerns that each participant may have. We have lots of fun with socialization, play time and treats along with tons of learning to get you and puppy off on the right track of great manners and good behavior.  

Here is a sample breakdown of what we cover in each course:

Session 1: Loading the Marker, Sit, Touch, Watch Me

Session 3: Down, Leave It, Where Are You?

  • "Wow! Thanks to all the staff at Anderson Vet Clinic. I feel like you all truly love what you do! My kitty, Lola and I always have such a pleasant experience when we come in. Fortunately, it’s usually just for a check-up, but I would not leave Lola in anyone else’s hands but yours. Thank you for your caring commitment!"
    Maya Smith / Los Angeles, CA
  • "I have benefited tremendously from the care my pet received from Dr. Anderson."
    John Doe / San Diego, CA
  • "Fabio wasn’t eating the food I was giving him and I didn’t feel he was getting the nutrition he needed. Thanks to Dr. Anderson, he evaluated Fabio and his current diet to make some recommendations and now Fabio has gone from barely eating to finishing his meals and he looks healthier than ever. You clearly are an expert in your field...thanks so much!"
