Puppies are cute, adorable and can tug at the toughest of hearts.  Give them a few months and soon they will be tugging on your curtains, furniture and shoes instead of your heart...


While puppies are cute as ever, a proper beginning is important.  Let us help you with proper care, structure and consistency and help guide you on setting boundaries so you're not giving into the tugs during your weakest moments.  Setting boundaries right now is more important then ever.

Private Lessons

Private Lessons are great for those that can't make our class times, dogs that may need more help in specific areas or for those dogs not suitable for class environments....yet.

Private Lessons allow for the trainer to focus on not only your dog although you and your handling skills as well. 

Private Lessons are typically done at our training center and when the trainer feels you and your dog are ready lessons will travel to your home and/or specific areas where we can proof and start working real life distractions and/or start class.
