We believe that training your dog should be fun! We train using GAMES to build confidence, keeping your dog focused and engaged working on reducing environmental distractions and increasing FOCUS to YOU!

We are a training facility that uses scientifically proven Positive Reinforcement which rewards the desired behavior.

Reward-Based Training is all about working with your dog as a partner. The key to training is setting your dog up for success by rewarding good choices. Your training success will depend on you building strong, trusting communication with your dog by playing fun games and teaching your dog what you want them to do and we are here to help you do just that!
