From puppy parenting and obedience to problem solving (rescue dogs, big and little, aging or in its prime) we equip you to get the behavior you really want from your dog, while helping your dog understand its role within your human family pack.
To accommodate different learning styles and preferences, we offer private dog training lessons and packages when owners are present (training you to train your dog) and when owners not present (we train your dog and later transfer the skills to you).
Diversity is essential. Because dogs learn from association, diversifying the learning environments reinforces the outcome of desired behavior and helps to measure the progress of your dog training goals. Depending on your goals, we meet in your home and in local public scenarios—trails, parks, high action areas—to get a full picture of what is "really" going on.

Private Dog Training
Private dog training is an excellent choice for dog owners who have the time and desire to have a hands-on experience in the training process. Private, individual lessons are recommended when a dog’s owners are prepared to commit to working independently on a steady, ongoing, daily basis.
Many owners feel that training in the location where undesirable behaviors occur is the logical approach to effective solutions. Our private lessons can be conducted in your home, at our training facility, or any other suitable location.
Group dog training classes is a fun and sociable way to learn basic obedience with other dogs and their people. Many dog owners enjoy the camaraderie of group training, and are encouraged by the support of their classmates. Group training offers an excellent, structured situation to socialize dogs in a controlled manner.
The class enrollments are kept to a comfortable size so each participant receives the individual attention and assistance they need to succeed. Contact us to discuss which group sessions will work best for you!
We offer two types of training camps. Our Day Camp delivers intense command reinforcement training in your home while you are at work or out running errands, or you can drop your dog off for the day at our facility.
Our Board & Train program also is popular and highly effective. Your dog stays with us and receives multiple daily training sessions, alternating with rest periods. At the conclusion of dog training, individual lessons are provided to transfer the training from us to you and your family.
From time to time we offer specialized seminars that are designed to focus on a specific subject. These can range from obedience and behavior related topics to sport and competition level training. Our seminars are taught by our staff as well as individuals from all over the world.
