"Dog owner's are quick to correct, but often forget to be as quick to Praise" - Matthew Read

Basic Obedience:

Our program teaches your dog(s) how to sit, down, sit/stay, down/stay, heel, and come while on leash while staying at our kennel. We will work with all types of dogs, and make your dog(s) as eager to work for you as possible. At the completion of the program, we will teach you the owner, how to use and enforce these commands with your dog(s), and to ensure a good relationship with your pet for the rest of his/her life. Our goals are to produce an educated owner and most important, a happy, obedient dog. We also offer a Basic Obedience Plus program which includes all of the above, plus either an off leash recall or a "place" command, so your pet can also be well mannered with your guests.

Advanced Obedience:

Our program teaches your dog(s) to sit, down, sit/stay, down/stay, heel and come (on leash and off leash), and also a "place" command. We use the training method that will work best with your individual dog to get the results you want.
