Class Levels



  • Off Leash Obedience: this class is used to teach dogs basic commands and can be taught in foreign language if desired. The course will have an introductory explanation of proper communication techniques and will be held in a quiet and relaxed training environment.

  • Private Training – Beginner: the goal of this class is to have the owner work with their dog in a positive and consistent manner. The owner will be taught to establish a leadership relationship with the dog. Basic commands such as come, sit, down, stay and leash walking will be taught.

  • Private Training – Intermediate: this class will perfect the standard commands and will also work on heel, distance work, distraction work and new environments.




Course Philosophy


A canine state of mind, that is what we as humans need to understand when bringing a dog into our lives. With this in mind, the courses are used to establish positive reinforcement to get the dog to act the way you want it to. Obedience is the foundation for all other training disciplines and provides for a harmonious human/animal relationship.
