Private Dog Training

Please see our COVID-19 policies to ensure safety when meeting face-to-face.   Not ready to socialize?  Check out our online live training options!

We offer training and behavior modification programs for dogs of all ages and skill levels.  Private training is an opportunity to address specific problem behaviors or for those who just want a little more individualized attention. Everything from basic manners and puppy training to serious behavioral issues can be addressed.

Not sure if our training approach is right for you?  Contact us to arrange sitting in on one of our training classes.
