What is Positive Reinforcement?

We believe dogs, like people, work better with praise rather than saying no all the time. Reward-based dog training leads to happy dogs and happy owners! From dog obedience training to dog agility training we bring a positive spin to all of our dog training classes.

In Class Training

For dogs from 8 weeks to the older dog (8 or older), we offer a variety of classes including: puppy, young and adult dog classes, Obedience, Agility (beginners and advanced) & Hooper's classes.

We also offer private classes for dogs that have anxiety or are not socialized enough for a group class. We believe that all dogs need jobs!

In Home Training

Does your dog not work well with others or needs a little extra attention? Are you having daily struggles with your dog(s) and are you in need of some help with training your dog? In-home training is available! Contact us and let us come to your home to train you and your dog.

Ame Lynette

My dog LOVES going to class each week!!!! Burt and Els are wonderful to work with, and I have learned so much from them. Their goal is that your dog is having fun while training and bonding with you. I truly appreciate how they are always aware of my dog’s feelings, moods, and safety.

Tilli just started a Pre Agility. it is simply amazing what great trainers Els and Burt are. I'm crazy happy with the progress all the pooches in our class have made in 3 lessons. I havent had this much fun and laughed so much in a LONG TIME!
