Featured Classes

Puppy Kindergarten

We specialize in Puppy Kindergarten classes where puppies from 9 weeks to 6 months of age learn to be well behaved members of the household. Early training is the single most important factor in your dog becoming a good companion.

Basic Obedience

We teach Basic Obedience Classes for dogs 6 months and older with the emphasis on every day household obedience exercises. We believe you really can teach an “old” dog new tricks, and that it is never too late to make your dog a better companion.


Agility classes are a great way to exercise your dog, build up your dog’s confidence, and for you and your dog to just plain have fun. We offer introductory classes that any dog of any age can enjoy as well as more advanced classes for those interested in competition.
