About Dog Training
The key to a long-lasting relationship between you and your dog begins with basic obedience training. For puppies, senior dogs, and all those in between our 6 week group training classes focus on helping you and your pet cover basic behaviors and obedience so that you can grow together.
There are many ways to train your dog, but our certified trainers agree that positive reinforcement is best. Our methods focus on creating a positive relationship between you and your dog to improve your dog’s behavior and obedience. Whether you’re a new or long-time pet parent with a new addition, our trainers can help you with the common problems of house training, chewing, and basic manners as well as help all dogs with common behavior issues.
