Our Philosophy - 

Most people just want to be able to walk their dog without being pulled down the street, or have their dog greet people nicely without jumping, or just have their dog listen to them.  Our training philosophy is based on the fact that dogs will respond to positive, rewarding situations and clear communication.  We specialize in helping you learn to read your dog's body language so you can better communicate with them, and with small class sizes you'll get all the attention you need.

Whether you're starting classes with a puppy, need help with your 'wild child', have behavioral issues with your dog, or just want to have some fun and keep your dog's skills sharp, there is a class for you.  From Kindergarten to College we've got classes to help foster that bond between you and your dog.

We train indoors and outdoors, on field trips and special events.  We offer in-home training, private sessions, group classes (maximum 4 dogs per class), one topic single session classes, and seminars and we have 4 professionally certified trainers.
