Specialty & Fun
We offer a  wide variety of Fun & Specialty classes.  Want to try something different?  Consider Nosework, Rally-O, Tricks & Dog Crafts & more!

Private Lessons

​We offer private, one on one, lessons, individually tailored to your dog and your situation.  Pivate lessons can be scheduled in you home, at our training facility, or at our Bed and Board facility.  Private lessons are also available through Zoom or Face Time - we have discovered that this is a GREAT way to see you and your pup in their natural environment - without our physical appearance the dog's behavior does not change due to us being present.
