Our Training Philosophy

Training is the most important thing you will ever do for your dog. How you approach training will forever affect the relationship between you and your dog.

We believe in positive, motivational training methods, which have been tested to show great results. We use a reward-based training approach that makes the learning experience fun for the dog and will ensure that your dog will put its “best paw forward”, listening to and obeying your commands. We keep our classes fun for both dogs and owners while learning in a friendly, positive environment.
