Dog & Puppy Training

Group Classes are a drop in format, meaning class is held every week and there is not a set curriculum. These classes are ideal to get everything from: introduction to basic obedience, working with distractions, walking on a loose leash, and building up confidence via socialization. These classes are designed to accommodate busy dog owners.

Private In-Home Training

Private in home training is ideal for individuals having issues with their dog at the home, or just want to learn at home in a one on one setting. There is a free phone consultation to identify your needs and issues that need addressed, as well as pricing. After the phone consultation there will be a one of two first time consultation options:

This is for extreme behavior problems such as: Human aggression, Dog aggression, extreme fear, separation anxiety and obsessive-compulsive behaviors.
This will cover basic commands such as: Sit, Down, Stay, Recall, Loose leash walking, Focus and touch. Also basic problem solving such as: excessive barking, Mouthing or play biting, jumping, digging, and house breaking. After the first training consultation we compose a training program designed specifically for you and your dog. These detailed plans may be made up off many different options and services. They are custom fit to meet the needs and budget of owners and their dogs.
