Brewery Dog Classes

For All Ages Prerequisites: *See Below.

Want to take your dog to the new brewery or local winery? Or maybe just out to lunch? 
We are now a certified Drink With Your Dog® class instructor and can help you do just that!

Have you dreamed of being able to take your dog to a local brewery or winery? Where your pooch would lay under the table while you drink with friends; or walk up nicely to the counter while you order a drink—all without jumping on people or the counter? 

With a little know-how and training, we can help make your dream of a doggie drinking companion come true!Even if you don't drink beer or wine, these are important skills for your dog to know. These behaviors will also

help you if you want to take them to an outdoor cafe, concert or even just to the park. Prepare for a real-life adventure together that is fun, exciting, and rewarding!

Here are some of the skills that your dog needs in order to be able to safely join you at a brewery or winery, and be a great brewery companion:

  • Remaining calm around people and other dogs

  • Staying on a mat for a duration of time

  • Calmly walking around people and dogs and up to a counter to order

  • The ability to leave to leave things that may fall on the floor

  • Quick recovery and tolerance around a lot of loud noises

In addition, your dog must be tolerant of other dogs and people, not be a big barker, and not jump on everyone they see. We want our brewery visits to be stress free for all involved. Human and dog.

None of our Brewery classes are appropriate for aggressive or reactive dogs.

If you are uncertain if this pertains to your dog, please contact us at
