Obedience Training

We are happy to offer obedience training for your dog. Excellent dog manners come from the consistent positive reinforcement of desirable behaviors. Our obedience training classes will help you learn gentle techniques to promote what comes naturally to a dog. Sitting, staying, walking on a leash, allowing grooming (including nail trimming), tooth brushing and medication administration will be among the subjects covered. Other issues such as house training, chewing, biting and barking will be addressed. Obedience training not only improves behavior and your pet's safety, but also strengthens the bond you have with your dog. Some of the classes we may offer include: puppy class, basic obedience, intermediate obedience course, advanced obedience course and occasionally specialized training may be available. Class size is limited. Please contact our staff to get more information.
