Services To Start


Imagine a dog that lives with your family in perfect harmony. No jumping up to greet your guests. No stealing food from the table. No pulling on the leash. No barking at strangers. In other words, a dog that everyone loves to have around. We teach you to teach your dog great manners — and you’ll both have fun doing it!

Private Training

Whether you prefer private dog training sessions for the individual attention, because your dog isn’t ready to learn in a group setting, or because you want to tackle specific behavior issues in a private setting, we are here to help you.

Fast Track Training

No time to train your dog yourself? Our popular Fast Track program allows you to drop your dogs off at the school for a day of playing and learning. This program is designed to make faster progress with training, enrich your dog’s social skills, and provide an outlet for his excess energy in a safe and supervised environment.
