Group Training

All of our group classes are currently on hold until our new training building is finished. Please check our Facebook Page for updates! 
Our classes are geared towards your pooch having good manners both at home and on the go!  Our positively reinforced training methods teach both you and your dog how to communicate with one another, so that your canine companion will become a good natured citizen both in and out of the home.  

We make it rewarding for your dog to make better choices through our positive and fun approach!

All dogs must have current Rabies and DHLPP vaccines and a Bordetella booster within that last 6 months.  Puppies must be current on all age-appropriate rounds of vaccines, including DHLPP and Bordetella (and Rabies, if old enough).
