Training Programs

Our puppy program is a great way to get your pup started in the right direction! Weather its future is in protection, detection, agility, SAR, or just a great family companion this is where to start! We start our puppy classes after 15 weeks of age when all your pup’s shots have been administered and proof is shown! This helps tremendously with socialization. We do both on and off-site training and single/group sessions. 


Individual sessions are for dogs of ALL breeds and ALL ages. No matter the issue we can help. We specialize here a lot on getting the owner comfortable with holding a leash and better understanding and reading of there dog. After your dogs has all the basics under control, we will introduce distractions and move into group sessions. 


Group sessions are great for owners looking to better their control in public with other animals and distractions. This is a very laid back and fun experience for your dog and allows for a lot of interaction and socialization. We always like to do individual sessions to get you and your dog on par prior to jumping into the deep end! With our step by step training programs we guarantee the best results. 


Our Board & Train packages are better described on our Board & Train page. Feel free to check it out and remember we are always just a phone call or text away to answer any and all questions you may have!
