All dog training sessions consist of 8 classes that are offered on a flexible schedule. You can register for any session and pick the day of the week and the time that suits your schedule. Questions regarding diet, grooming, choosing safe toys and other concerns will be covered in all sessions. We encourage the entire family to join us in the training. Ages 4 and up are welcomed to participate.

At registration we require proof of vaccinations by a veterinarian that all shots (DHPP, Bordetella *optional*, and Rabies) are up to dates for the dog’s age.
