We strive to help pet parents everywhere!

We can help pet parents with things like providing basic manners for their dog, helping a puppy get started off on the right paw, acclimating a newly adopted dog into the family, providing fun activities for your dog that offer mental and/or physical stimulation, and of course helping to educate you on dog ownership.

We can help you find additional help for more specialized training such as for behavior modification, competition, or therapy work.

Our licensed trainer offers a variety of training courses for our customers, both human and canine, in private and group settings. Ask the staff about specific schedules for more information.
