Obedience Training 

With over 20 years of experience, Justin brings a wealth of knowledge to his training sessions. He has managed canine facilities across the country, specialized in behavior evaluations for animal shelters and rescue groups, completed mold detection scent work, and specializes in obedience and behavior training for all levels and needs.  Justin will tailor training to your needs and to your dog's breed. Not only will you learn the skills, you will also learn the behavior characteristic specific to your dog's breed, a crucial component to understanding and correcting dog behavior. Our facility offers both private and group training options.

Please note that face masks are still required by all participants and each dog is allowed a maximum of two adults to attend with them. Due to safety, young children are not allowed to attend class.

All group class sizes are kept small to maximize the group experience, one-on-one instruction, and maintain safe social distances between participants. Dogs of all ages and breeds are welcome to join us! It is never too early to start training your new puppy, but they do need to have received all of their vaccinations prior to attending a group class. You also CAN teach an old dog new tricks! Excitability around others can be managed during a group class, but if your dog shows true aggression towards other people or dogs, then we will require a private lesson before enrolling in a group class.

 

Payment is due by the first group class, and is non-refundable. We do not offer partial payments; if you need to miss a session then we will be happy to email you the course content for that day. We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes.

Basic Obedience: Six week course for $150 (plus tax) 

This class will focus on basic level obedience skills - "watch" or focus, sit, stay, down, heeling on leash, come when called, and any other problematic behaviors (i.e. barking, jumping, etc).

Private Training Lessons  $150 per session (plus tax)

Private lessons are available for any training need. The fee is $150 per session, which will last approximately 1.5 hours. We do not require that you pre-book multiple appointments as Justin's goal is to provide you with the information and tools that you need to address the concerns, however, follow up appointments are available if needed.  Private lessons can be held at our facility or a public location depending on what behaviors you are targeting. Please note that there is a $15 fee for all appointments held at another location.

We do not offer board and train services. Due to the pandemic, we are not offering in-home appointments at this time.
