Our Courses
Consistent with our comprehensive approach to Dog Training, we offer a variety of courses.  In addition to  the listed topics, each course includes modules covering specific areas students have requested upon registration.  We keep our courses up to date with the latest research and techniques in the canine world and we're confident that even the most experienced dog parents will gain valuable information by attending our classes.
In fact, it's often the more experienced dog parents who've developed bad habits based on outdated believes that pervade the  dog "ownership" culture
In-home training is offered on its own or as a package deal with one of our courses.   We highly recommend it as the way to get the most out of the skills we teach. Contact us for details.
