What is Positive Reinforcement Dog Training?

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.

Cute Dog Looking at Camera

Kate Sexsmith

Els and Burt are very encouraging and supportive during the classes and help bring out the best in both the dog and the owners 

Kelsey Jackson

Els and Burt have been so patient (which can be tough with an anxious dog) and wonderful with her since our very first class. She is doing amazing learning agility, and it has given her confidence outside of class. They are wonderful, patient, and ALWAYS positive. I would recommend taking any class with them!
