Dog Training!



Create the ideal family pet out of your dog!
We are positive reinforcement trainers. We do not train with physical corrections and do not allow any harsh
methods to be used during training. Our classes are fun, positive, and upbeat! We encourage the entire family
to attend class and participate in the training process.

Our indoor facility is very small; we limit most classes to four dogs. This ensures you and your dog receive
plenty of individual attention. We use both small-sized and competition sized agility equipment in agility
classes. Dogs as early as 8 weeks old are encouraged to join our training program, provided they have had a
first Distemper / Parvo booster and a negative fecal flotation. Dogs over 6 months of age must be current on
the Distemper / Parvo and Rabies vaccinations. Vaccines must be verified before the start date of class.

Dogs must be comfortable other dogs and strangers in order to participate in group classes. We only offer
playtime during our AKC S.T.A.R Puppy Kindergarten & Puppy Beginner 30/30 classes. We will not work with
dogs who have aggression toward people, serious dog / dog aggression, or dogs with a bite history.

We offer both group lessons and private instruction. Group classes are scheduled for weeknights and
Saturdays. Private lessons are booked at your convenience. Additionally, we offer a "Train & Play" package
where we will work on specified behaviors while your dog is here for daycare. If you are uncertain what
class your dog should be in or aren't sure if your dog is well-suited to group class, we would be happy to
schedule an evaluation for your dog to see what training options would best benefit your dog.

Obedience to you and your dog.

BARN HUNT CLINIC:
(Recommended for dogs with a high prey drive who like to chase squirrels!)
30 minute Clinic Session - $25.00
Do you have a dog who LOVES to hunt and chase squirrels? Does your dog have a high prey drive? You
may have an earthdog / barn hunt dog on your hands! Earthdog is a fast-growing sport that encourages  
dogs to safely explore their hunting instincts. It starts with a rat held safely in a cage (the rats are not
hurt - they are our pets) and a maze for your dog to navigate through in order to find them! They are
rewarded by being able to bark at, stare, and 'work' the rat without harming the rat in any way.
Partcipiating in earthdog and/or barn hunt will not make your dog aggressive toward other dogs or
people - it's simply a fun way for them to have a GOOD time and EXHAUST themselves!!!
