Don't get frustrated - Get educated.

We not only train the dog, but also provide expert guidance to the clients through handler instruction. We build the client's confidence in working with their dog(s), educate clients about dog behavior and behavior modification. Dogs are very much individuals and need to be trained in that respect. We develop training programs to suit each individual dog’s needs. Our basic goals are to build confidence in the dog, confidence in the handler, and to gain verbal control. All of our obedience programs include:
  • Working on fourteen obedience commands
  • Specific problems our clients are experiencing
  • And we always work towards obtaining our client's goals with their dog.

Health Requirements

All puppies and dogs must show proof of vaccinations prior to participating in our training programs. We require current DHLPP, Bordetella and Rabies vaccinations for dogs over the age of 6 mos.
We strongly suggest that your dog have a negative fecal test, a negative Heartworm test for dogs older than six months of age, and be free of external parasites.

    Private Consultations

A consultation is arranged prior to attending a training program.  While meeting with one of our skilled team members, the consultation gives us an opportunity to evaluate the dog and discuss the client's goals. With this information we will recommend the appropriate tools, techniques and a training program, if a program has not been selected yet.

    Board and Train

This is our most thorough program. The dog boards at our facility for three weeks. During this time we lay a solid obedience foundation. Once the three weeks is complete we'll begin the Handler Instruction phase of the program, which consists of four hours of private sessions and three group classes. The first two hours are on the very same day as pick up. The weeks following the pick-up day/session will consist of the third and fourth hours of private sessions, and after all the private sessions are complete the handler and the dog(s) will return to participate in three half-hour group classes.  Note: A $150 deposit is required on the date of the consultation to book your boarding dates.  This is fully refundable up to two weeks before the drop off date.  Program cost does not include equipment, if needed.
