Puppy Program is a great starting place for loving dog owners who want to take the time to take their puppies through a basic training class that includes much needed socialization and experiences in a safe environment. $120 for the six week class*.
AKC Canine Good Citizen Our Basic Class includes training to create long-lasting trust between you and your pup, but also ensures you’ll be good neighbors and friends to everyone around you—and, if you’re interested in going beyond the basics, and preparation for the CGC test which also lays the foundation for other AKC sports and activities like rally, agility, tracking, and performance events. $120 for the six week class*. (Testing available without class)
AKC Community Canine is a 10-step test of community social skills that go beyond the CGC and includes public access skills. $150 for the six week class*, CGC prerequisite. (Testing available without the class)
Drop In Class is at 9:00 on Saturdays. This session is a mix of handler and dog teams that are working on specific challenges such as listening with distractions, social manners or skills test
items. It is paced to the individual teams who, once registered, can choose which Saturdays they wish to attend. This is also great for those that may not be able to commit to 6 weeks in a row but want to work on the basics and take advantage of the discounted group rate of $20 per session*.

We are a Fear Free training facility. We are focused on the welfare of your dog and your relationship with your dog. We are educated and certified in using science based techniques to teach the skills your dog needs without punishment and teach the you how to ask for and get the dog to offer these skills. Because punishment does not fix but instead suppresses behaviors escalation can occur. Punishment does not teach the dog the wanted behaviors which can lead to frustration for both you and your dog. Suppressed behaviors may actually reoccur in more dramatic and dangerous ways.
Service Dog Training: We work with you to train your own service dog. Dogs must meet specific requirements including age, health, temperament and task suitability. Owner Trainers must be able to commit the time and effort required for training, maintain a training log and provide for the dog's health and welfare.
