The obedience training program is designed for pet owners who wish to have a well behaved dog. Training provides a way of establishing a system of communication and a solid working relationship between you and your dog. Through training, the dog learns what you expect when a command is given. This relationship establishes you as the leader of the pack and with consistent work, trust and love will grow. Your dog becomes a well behaved companion who is secure in his place beside you.  

Basic Obedience Class: This is the class for untrained dogs and their people. Learn to teach your dog basic obedience (heel, sit, down, stay, and COME when called! and walking on a loose leash.)
