Dog Training

The goal of our training classes is to teach lifesaving skills to the families and dogs we serve.

Those skills include name recognition, recall, loose leash walking, “leave it”, and good social skills when meeting new people and other dogs. Through training, you will learn the meaning behind your dog’s behaviors, and will learn how to communicate with your dog. The training experience will build a stronger bond of trust between you and your dog, and will give you the tools you need to respond to or correct your dog’s behavior out in the real world.

Please email [email protected] to begin the enrollment process.

Our classes teach positive reinforcement techniques and do not address aggression or extreme behavior modification.

If your dog is exhibiting aggression, fear, or anxiety, we recommend the following:

Topics Covered

  • Watch
  • Sit
