What to expect…
Whether you need help with basic obedience, advanced off leash obedience or anything in between, our trainers are fully equipped to help you attain your goal! Our award winning trainers and canine behaviorists have years of knowledge and experience with a multitude of dog breeds, ages and temperament.
Having reliable obedience can mean the difference between life and death. Too many dogs get away from their owners and take off across streets, through woods and don’t listen to their owners frantic command to “come!”
We can teach you how to have reliable obedience so you don’t have to worry that your dog will take off on you. You’ll have the confidence that your dog will listen to your commands and stay safe.
Our obedience classes focus on proper canine manners and the five basic commands (sit, down, stay, heel and come). You and your dog will learn proper human/ canine environmental socialization. You will also learn the lost art of leash handling, which is essential to proper training! Each class is essentially a mini seminar, so you will leave with more canine understanding, education and confidence than you ever imagined!
We do you expect you, the dog owner, to put in the effort as well. It is extremely rewarding and creates an unimaginable bond with your dog that will last a lifetime!

Other than behavior rehabilitation we also offer private instruction and small, focused group classes. All classes meet once a week. Obedience class placements begin with an evaluation in order for us to recommend the proper course of action. Our head trainer, Chris Fraize, will then develop a custom lesson plan, designed specifically with your goals in mind for you and your dog. Our obedience classes are designed to give you and your dog the necessary education to lead to success!
We start puppies at 16 weeks, once they have completed their vaccinations. We still start with an initial evaluation then will suggest either private or small group classes. Limit for group class is 4 pups.
We teach the basics of come, sit, heel, and down, as well as help with common puppy issues like house breaking, nipping and general puppy behavior. We teach you how to live with your puppy in order to have the adult dog you want. A well behaved dog that you can take anywhere!
We do use a high quality food when teaching puppies then wean away so they are not dependent on food to listen to your command. Weaning away from food is crucial to having reliable obedience. We want your dog to respect YOU not the food.
