Obedience Training

Making Life With Dogs Easier

Let's face it, even dogs need manners! We are here to help with multiple training options available.  

| Group Classes - We offer small size group classes covering specific topics.  These lessons rotate throughout the year and typically include three to five classes over a period of a few weeks.

| Private Lessons - Private lessons are great for owners looking to correct specific behaviors and/or with dogs who need a little more one on one attention.  These lessons can be as many or as few as you would like and includes an evaluation to discuss your expectations prior to beginning. 

| Board & Train - This style of training is great for dogs who need a little more work to get them where they need to be or for owners who simply don't have the time to commit to traveling for training.  Board and train lasts approximately four to six weeks and focuses on specific behavior issues and/or skills that the owner and trainer will discuss together.  It includes a free consultation. Upon completion of training, it also includes a session for the owner to learn how to continue and maintain the learned behaviors and skills at home

The Details

Like people, all dogs are different.  They each have unique personalities and require different styles of training. The style of training you choose should be based on what is going to work the best for your dog's personality and temperament. Tailoring to your dog's individual needs will assist you both in the learning process and allow you to heed the most benefits from training.

If you are looking to cover a specific topic and your dog's personality is less reactive, then group classes may be the way to go! If you have more specific training requests and need to cover several topics, or if your dog doesn't do as well in a group setting, then private lessons may be your choice. The board and train program digs a little deeper than private lessons to work on corrective behaviors and covers a wider range of lessons, it can be tailored to your needs. The board and train program does include a free consultation to meet with you and your dog to discuss what is needed, temperament, and expected outcomes. 

This is a time of change for not only your dog, but for you and your family also.  It is vital that the skills your dog learns are continued at home and that you are comfortable with our training techniques.  To reap the rewards, it has to be a team effort.
