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