Our training philosophies are based on positive reinforcement conditioning. Our training is a fun, learning experience for both you and your canine companion. Our training focuses on teaching you, the owner, how to communicate with your dog. Teaching through positive reinforcement and patient instruction helps you to become a better pet owner and your pet to become a better companion, a loving member of the family and a welcome member of society.

Training while boarding allows your dog to learn in a structured, educational environment. Training consists of several short lessons each day allowing for repetition and consistency with plenty of play time. This keeps training fun and enjoyable for your dog while allowing them to learn at a quicker pace. Training while boarding normally consists of a two week program. Upon completion of training you will receive private instruction with your dog. After completion of our board and train program your dog will receive refresher training when they board with us.

Group lessons are recommended after completion of either in-home lessons or training while boarding. This allows your dog to learn the commands thoroughly before adding in the many distractions a group class provides. Group class is an excellent environment for your pet to learn socialization skills with other dogs and  people.
