Course Catalog

Puppy classes, socials and private training.
for dogs. for people.

Training a puppy begins the second you bring him home.

Everything you do—and don’t do—is an “A-ha” moment for your puppy. They are learning, for better or worse, every second of every day. We know puppies, and we know people. We understand the difference between behaviors that will fade away as your pup matures and behaviors that need attention right now,  before they become life long problems.

Happy Dogs. Happy People. Happy Training.
