Our Obedience Dog Training

We believe that every dog is capable of being a great dog!  As such, we offer multiple options to help facilitate each dog’s individual needs. We offer two-, three- and four-week courses, depending on the unique needs of each family.

During the course of obedience training, your dog will live with one of our certified trainers in their home with their family. Some key areas we focus on are several different obedience commands as well as any specific concerns or behaviors you would like us to address.  We will also train your pet in crate, house, and car manners.
