Our Dog Training Program.

    Basic Obedience Training:
  • We offer basic instruction in dog obedience traning for dog owners (individual lessons and class situations), puppy training and consultation on dog behavioral problems.
  • Our goal is to teach the owner principles of dog behavior and training techniques appropriate to their dog so that the owner can train the pet to be a well mannered and safe companion.
  • We even have a rent a dog training program in which a person who does not have a dog can come to class and learn the basics of training using one of our young dogs. We DO NOT offer training in protection or aggression work. This is a highly specialized field requiring an experienced trainer who must be carefully chosen. Follow this link for a discussion of the responsibilities and difficulties of protection training.
  • Agility equipment available at the site.
  • Before you get a dog consultation sessions are also available. People whose previous dog owning experience is non-existant need to understand the basics of dog psychology and biology before choosing a pet. It is our firm belief that many dogs that are given up to shelters by owners would not have been given up if the owner had known what they were getting into.
