Low-Cost Obedience Courses

Join us for our obedience courses! We offer low-cost courses for dogs of all ages and obedience levels. Our courses run for 6 weeks with each class lasting 1 hour. We keep our class size small to ensure each dog and owner gets as much out of the class as possible. Our training methods are science based and tons of fun for owners and dogs! We guarantee a stronger bond between you and your dog after you complete the 6-week course.

What is force-free training?

Force-free is a style of dog training that teaches our dog the right behaviors through positive reinforcement (rewarding for behaviors we like) and negative punishment (ignoring behaviors we dislike). We do NOT use or allow prong collars, choke collars, shock collars, or force of any kind. We teach dogs to want to please us and engage in good behaviors because they want to.
