Puppy Training

Give your puppy the best start for a happy and healthy future! Let us show you how to leverage natural behaviors like chewing and playtime to build confidence, establish boundaries, and create a solid foundation for what’s to come.

Therapy Dog Program

Learn how to develop a strong relationship with your dog and collaborate effectively as a team. Discover the benefits of therapy dogs and the various settings where they are particularly useful, such as schools, hospitals, nursing homes, and hospice care facilities. Training your dog to become a therapy dog offers a great opportunity to positively impact the lives of others.

Obedience Training

Basic training is just the beginning! Learn how to work with your dog to develop calm, focused, and responsive behaviors regardless of the distractions they encounter.

Day Training

No time for training? “Day training” is a highly effective method to teach your dog new behaviors, encourage appropriate socialization and master fun tricks. Your dog’s learning potential (and your time) will be maximized with personalized, one-on-one sessions led by a certified trainer.

Canine Good Citizen

Learn and practice the 10 essential skills included in The Canine Good Citizen (C.G.C.) test, developed by the American Kennel Club. Let us help you and your dog prepare for the C.G.C test while enhancing your communication skills, building confidence, and understanding stress cues.

Group Training and Classes

Group training classes provide a well-organized setting for puppies and dogs to improve their skills and build confidence in various situations. Classes promote neutrality amidst distraction and shape appropriate socialization and behaviors.

Service Dog Program

Learn the federal and state public access laws, manage questions about your service dog, and develop a confident, well-behaved dog that is deeply connected to you. Training covers basic and advanced obedience, socialization, behavior expectations for public access, balance in stressful situations, and trained responses to the needs of your specific disability.

Behavior Modification

Behavior modification training can be extremely helpful for dog owners who want to understand and address their dog’s unwanted behaviors. By improving communication, you can effectively manage frustration and stress caused by behavioral issues. This will ultimately lead to a stronger bond between you and your dog and a more peaceful home environment.
