● We have helped you train literally thousands of dogs over the past twenty years. Our positive training methods produce great results without the need for choke chains, prong collars, shock collars or other types of physical correction and punishment. Research shows that dogs trained using these methods are generally more socially balanced and well adjusted, making them better family members.
● Classes and workshops are small in size, (4 per class), and held at our private training center. All of our training, including classes, is available 6 days a week (Monday-Saturday) and times are varied to accommodate your busy, changing schedule.
● Private lessons are held at our training center, your home, or wherever need be to train your dog most effectively.
