DOG TRAINING

IMG_0372.JPG

Our Dog training classes are designed to help you get the pet you deserve and help you establish the rules and relationship you and your pet will be happy to live with.  Our small class size (maximum of 10 dog students per class) and skilled instructors are the key to a good training environment.

We believe in positive reinforcement training which enhances the bond between pet and owner, and adheres to the philosophy of no harm done to the dog. Aggressive dogs of any kind are not allowed in group classes.

Please visit the Forms page for the information you will need to fill out prior to class.
