Training for You and Your Dog

What people have said about our training...

"I learned options and possibilities for my dog
- not just one way to do things!"

"Great instruction! Organized and encouraging.
When is the next class?"

"Wonderfully knowledgeable and supportive way
of dealing with both handlers and dogs!
We will definately be back for more"

We have training for all stages ... from the dogs and handlers who have never even seen agility, to those gearing up for National and World competition.

Our instructors are actively competing at an International level in the agilty, and keep up to date on recent developments in training and handling methodologies from around the world.

We do not subscribe to a cookie cutter aproach to training, but believe that every dog/handler team is unique, and must be given the tools to find their own solutions.

Above all, we believe that training should be a positive experience, and the primary focus of any training should be fun, for both dog and handler.

To the right you will see the different types of training we can offer. Or contact us to let us know where your interests and needs are. That'll help us plan and schedule new offerings.

DOG DAY TRAIN

Why send your dog to an overcrowded dog daycare, when you can have your dog trained by our professional staff for as little as $30 per day (less for multi day and multi dog discounts!)

An alternative to Dog Daycare, if you sign up for a Dog Day Train you will drop your dog off in the morning and pick your dog up after work. During the day our staff will work on your dog's issues (can be everything from basic manners to building a better performance on a piece of agility equipment). Your dog can also get treadmill time if their issue is a need to tone up, lose some extra pounds, and/or work on rehabbing an injury. Contact us for more information, or to sign your dog up for a Day Train day today!
