Group Training Classes are offered on a regular basis. Our class size is kept small, 6-8 dogs max.) to enable the instructor(s) the opportunity to give each family the attention that they need. Although we follow a curriculum that is based on 6 weeks, we are flexible in our teaching schedule. We offer training classes on Saturday mornings and classes are usually set up by age and/or previous training experience.
Individualized Obedience Training is offered to best meet the needs of your dog and family. The program involves members of the family to assure that the dog understands their role in the "pack". A correction and reward system is used to help you have the dog of your dreams! These lessons are held primarily on weekends for the convenience of our training clients.
American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen certification is for owner's who would like their dog to earn CGC. It teaches your dog proper etiquette for participating in programs in nursing homes, hospitals, schools and more. The national test is given in the final class and guidelines for certification must be met.
Help your dog be "the best dog in the neighborhood" by giving them the tools they need to be successful. We work with you and members of your family to cultivate your dog to be a great member of your family and society!
