Obedience Training


Puppy (12 weeks-6 months)

Puppy training classes will teach basic obedience skills such as sitting, lying down, staying in place, coming when called, and walking on a leash without pulling. We will also show you how to curb common puppy issues including jumping and mouthing.


Beginner (6 months and up)

Beginner classes will build upon the puppy training class curriculum. In addition to basic obedience skills (sit, down, stay in place, come when called, walk without pulling), students will learn how to heel on a leash, greet others appropriately, and work under higher levels of distraction.



The intermediate class is for dogs that have attended at least 10 total classes at either puppy or beginner level. We will build upon the exercises taught in previous classes, as well as teach new skills. Puppy and beginner classes teach the foundation of obedience for a well-behaved dog. The intermediate class is to achieve reliability.


Urban Agility Training

Urban agility is our adaptation of a traditional agility class, integrating obstacles, and treadmill training into a more compact space. This class is open in format and no prior agility training is required. Urban agility is intended for recreation.

Therapy Dog Prep

Our preparation class will walk participants through the testing requirements and provide practical instruction on training a therapy dog. This class also helps prepare for the AKC’s Canine Good Citizen test.

Play, Stay & Train

Boot Camp

Boot camp is an intensive dog training program in which your dog stays with us for two weeks or longer and is trained daily. Our certified professional trainers custom tailor a regimen for each dog based on your goals. To find out if your pet is a good candidate for dog training camp, please call or email our trainers at your specific Stop.

Day Camp

Instead of boarding for two weeks and being trained daily, your dog will be picked up each night after playing and training for the day. Day Camp is ideal for dogs that need the consistency and continuity of boot camp but are not long-term boarding candidates.

Board and Train

Custom-tailored dog training sessions while your dog is boarding. This immersive experience is designed to address specific behavioral issues or to help your dog master certain skills and commands. While enjoying the comfortable and nurturing environment of our facility, your dog will engage in daily training sessions tailored to their individual needs and learning pace. This program is not just about training; it’s about providing a holistic experience that includes exercise, socialization, and rest, ensuring your dog returns home well-behaved, confident, and happy.
