NO MATTER WHICH PROGRAM YOU CHOOSE, We can help you better understand your role in your puppy’s learning process.  We address behavioral obstacles, teach you how they originated, and provide you with many practical applications on how to overcome them, turning them from potential negative experiences into positive opportunities.

Group Class

What is it? Group class is a good way to work around a controlled distraction environment. This is excellent as a support system to follow up private or day training programs. 

How does it work? Many dog training companies pack numerous handler/dog teams in one class with one instructor. All of our classes have limited enrollment. By limiting our class size, our clients get the one-to-one attention they deserve and can achieve maximum results. We have implemented a rolling enrollment for most of our classes.  This means that new students can join at any time. We find that this method works well for practicing around distraction in a controlled environment and allows for life to happen where students do not have to worry about making up a class.

Group class: 4 -6 students: $55 drop-in rate ; 4-pack $200

Specialty Group Class: 2 to 4 students – 1 Trainer $65 drop-in rate; 4-pack $250

Private Lessons at our place or yours

Private lessons allow you a lot of versatility. You pick the topics that are important to you!

How does it work? These sessions are designed as a 50/50 partnership between the trainer and the owner (handler). A professional trainer works with you on the goals that you have set up ahead of time. It is their role to find out what works for you and your dog’s learning style and then have you duplicate the session while the trainer is still there to coach you through it. We will help build your skills so you are comfortable enough to work on your own (your homework).
Then it’s up to YOU to practice and advance your dog until your next session.

I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me, they are the role model for being alive.
