Group Classes

Basic Obedience

Our beginner course is perfect for your new puppy or any dog experiencing training for the first time. You and your dog will work alongside other handler-dog teams to learn the foundations of obedience and good manners.

Advanced

The follow up to our basic class. You’ll work as a team to build a stronger relationship and grow your dog’s skillsets. In our advanced group classes we’ll strengthen your dog’s confidence, teach you, the handler, how to become an even more trusted pack-leader, and ultimately become leash-free.


One-On-One Sessions

We understand that some dog owners prefer individual training. Sometimes behavioral situations or an overly rambunctious dog can benefit from a more personalized approach. Our one-on-one training sessions are custom-tailored to you and your dog. It could be anything from counter-surfing or pulling on walks, to dog-aggression or fear of strangers. We’ll diagnose and create a customized training plan to build your dog’s comfortability and confidence, all while reinforcing proper behavior and obedience.

At our training center or at your home.

If you can’t come to us, we’ll come to you. Transportation issues, scheduling, or even a nervous dog can make it difficult to get to our training center. If at-home training is the best choice for you, please let us know and we can schedule a session that fits your needs.
