Spring 2021 Dog Training Classes

Reserve a spot for you and your dog in one of our upcoming DOG TRAINING CLASSES. Let us help you train the dog you love and have fun doing it!

Dog Training and Learning to Speak "Dog"

Your dog loves being part of your family, but sometimes doesn’t always understand their position in your “pack”. Training helps your dog understand what you expect of them and allows the two of you to form a strong bond and partnership.


Basic commands all dogs should know are sit, down, stay, walk nicely on a leash, come when called and leave it. We use up to date positive reward training methods and allow dogs to learn new skills at their own pace and in their own way.


Today’s society expects dogs to have social skills that allow them to participate in activities with their family such as being friendly with people, without jumping on them, knowing how to play with other dogs, and manners in the car.


We offer group training classes throughout the year and we have other training options available whenever your dog has a reason to be with us. Our training takes place in our light, airy atrium, one of our large fenced-in play yards, or our heated/ air-conditioned home-like training room.
