Day Camp


Day camp is a great alternative when your busy schedule makes it difficult to commit to group classes. You leave your dog with us for a full day and tell us what you want them to learn. Your dog will receive six private sessions, lunch and snacks, light brushing and some free time for play. You drop your dog off in the morning and, when you pick him up at the end of the day, our trainers will review what he has learned with you and give you instructions to carry on with their new skills!

Boarding School


Boarding school allows us to give your dog very focused one-on-one training over the course of two or more days. He or she will learn multiple advanced skills without you having to commit to months of classes. Your dog will stay with us for the duration of his or her training. Each day he or she will receive six private sessions, a morning loose leash walking lesson, lunch and snacks, daily brushing and handling lessons and some free time to play. You will meet with your trainer at the end of his or her stay to learn what your part will be in maintaining the skills we have taught.

Private School

$75/hr private

Private school involves a one-on-one lesson with a trainer in our facility. The entire time is focused on you and your dog and the specific skills you wish to learn. Bring a friend for a semi-private lesson!

Home School


When you have issues that are better addressed in your own home or yard, Home School may be your best option. Our trainer will come to your home and work with you in the atmosphere where the problem is occurring. Issues such as fence aggression, door greetings or potty training are some of the many problems we can resolve.

Loose Leash Walking

$55/30 minute session

If you want your dog to walk loosely next to you and not pull you along, this is the course for you! We will meet with you for a consultation and take your dog out for a 30-minute walk. This will be one-on-one with a trainer. Our gentle methods work very well. We can make your dog understand how to walk without pulling. We do not use choke, prong or electric collars on our dogs - ever.
