Pet Training

Many people think that dog training classes are just a series of exercises and maybe some socialization. They are much more, especially as you advance. Organized dog training classes help teach you how to best communicate with your dog, provide an opportunity for your dog to socialize with other dogs and help with many behavioral problems. Much like people, every dog is different. Your pet may be hyperactive, laid-back, serious, silly, shy, or over confident. Regardless of their differences, dog training is a necessity for all dogs and will benefit your entire family. The more you learn how your dog’s mind works and the better he/she understands what you expect, the stronger the relationship will become. This stronger relationship will help with the challenges of dog ownership and allow you to enjoy your pet more fully. We offer three levels of training classes; puppy, beginner, and advanced obedience. Our classes are offered on Monday and Tuesday nights in the fall and winter, and Tuesday and Wednesday nights in the spring. All dogs must have proof of current vaccinations, be flea free, worm free, and not be contagious.

Puppy Kindergarten $100

Our 5-week class is an exciting program designed for dog owners/families and puppies from 10 weeks of age up to 20 weeks of age.

Puppy kindergarten is a great start for getting you and your puppy off on the right foot (paw).

referral_summerThank you so much for the wonderful care you give our dogs! Summer & Shandy love coming to visit. They know when they see us packing our bags that they’ll be getting their own little "vacation" and get so excited. The excitement continues in the car ride and they can barely contain themselves by the time we pull into the parking lot. We know they get loads of play time because they are so exhausted when we bring them home. It puts our minds at ease to know they enjoy themselves so much and are so well taken care of.
Randy, Shari, Shandy & Summer
