Puppy/Dog Training Classes

Puppy / Dog Training Classes are for dogs with no prior training  or as a brush-up. These courses can be challenging but it will help you get your dog under control and well on its way to becoming an enjoyable companion. You will learn all of the basic commands but more importantly you will begin to establish leadership, set boundaries, and learn when and when not to reward your dog. As you learn together you will begin to develop a strong bond with your dog who needs and wants a leader and this class will get you on the right track to play that role in its life. You will receive homework each week to help you implement what you have learned in class.  DO NOT GIVE UP ON YOUR PUP!!!
