I believe that every pet dog has the potential to achieve the responsiveness expected of a dog competing in the obedience show ring. I train all dogs towards this level of reliability. A show dog is nothing more than a very enhanced pet.

You will be taught how to extinguish bad behavior starting the first day. Your dog will develop a habit of desirable behavior, this results in a harmonious relationship between you and your dog. You will learn the practical value of all obedience exercises as your dog progresses in the program.

It is our objective to set owners up to succeed with our dog training. The majority of people that use our services are referrals from other clients. I have come up with two different ways for you to get a well-trained dog. You just pick the one that will offer you the most success.
