Open to New & Current Students
Each session is tailored to achieve your specific dog training goals. Whether we’re teaching your dog commands and manners, or solving behavior problems, a private lesson allows our trainers to focus on just you and your dog!
FastTrack Training “Play & Train”
Our popular Student-Only FastTrack program allows you to leave your dog (or puppy!) with us for a day of playing and learning. Our program is designed to progress your dog’s training faster, enrich and advance his social skills, and provide a safe and fun outlet for his excess energy in a supervised environment.
Intensive Board & Train
An effective way to achieve LASTING results FAST, without the stressful kennel atmosphere, because in our program, your dog lives with a trainer! No matter what the age or issue (basic manners, off leash commands, socialization, or challenging behavior challenges), we’ll create a training plan and support you every step of the way!
Puppy Boot Camp
Our Puppy Boot Camp is an overnight program open to puppies between the age of 8 weeks and 6 months. We’ll create a customized training program for his time with us, and get him the critical foundational training he needs to become a well-behaved adult. Plus, because he won’t be spending the night alone in a kennel run, we’ll be able to make a lot of progress on the most important puppy skill of all: Housebreaking!
Group Classes for All Levels
Perfect for puppies 8 weeks through 5-6 months of age, our nationally acclaimed, reward-based training system will set you and your puppy up for success! Your puppy will learn foundational obedience commands, impulse control, and proper socializing with fellow classmates. Each class will also have Q&A time, to help solve your specific behavior challenges. Our training methods promote a strong puppy-owner bond, and help transform a “Gimme! Gimme!” puppy into “Please, may I?”
Graduates of Puppy Class are encouraged to attend Puppy II or Beginner I for more advanced skills and problem-solving.
Graduates of Puppy 1 *or* puppies who’ve previous training will find this curriculum advances the skills they’ve already learned. We’ll add new commands, and advance ones they already know, while continuing to keep their social skills up and help you solve the behavior problems that inevitably happen during adolescence!
If you're unsure about which puppy class level is right for you, reach out to us and we’ll help you decide.
Our Beginner level is the perfect class for dogs six months of age and older. Our nationally acclaimed, reward-based training system is the best and fastest way to teach basic commands, as well as create a strong foundation for impulse control, social skills, and teamwork!
Graduates of our Beginner I Class are encouraged to attend Beginner II to advance their dog’s skills.
This class takes the basic commands and creates reliability and duration! We’ll make sure your dogs commands work “No Matter What” as well as emphasizing good manners and dog-to-dog social skills. As always, there will be a Q&A section in every class, to help solve behavior problems as they happen.
If you're unsure about which beginner class level is right for you, reach out to us and we’ll help you decide.
Think of this as prep for Advanced class. Instead of working on a 6’ leash, we’ll use much longer ones to teach your dog that no matter how far away you are, he still has to listen! In this level we also start to introduce the concept of being out of sight for stays, more intricate heeling patterns, and stringing commands together to create reliable sequences of commands.
Take your dog’s training to the next level! Whether you're looking for the reliability that duration, distance, and distraction training create, or you want off-leash control, or you’d love to try canine sports like agility or nose work, this class lays the off-leash obedience foundation for everything.
ALL puppies and dogs in our PlayCare program are current, in-training students, so we know each and every dog’s personality and temperament! That’s the secret behind how we create perfect playgroups for every dog. Our one-of-a-kind program ensures a safe, fun, and enriching experience for everyone!
Classes for Dogs with Special Challenges
This class is for dogs that are shy or fearful (but *not* aggressive) around other dogs, and/or humans. We’ll teach you effective exercises to help your dog overcome fear and gain confidence!
The appropriate age for this class is six months or older, and pre-registration is required, as this is a very popular class.
In this class, you'll learn how to safely handle your dog around other dogs and how to teach them skills to manage their behavior (sit, down, come, look, and many more). The process of learning these skills builds their social confidence, strengthens their relationship with you, and decreases their reactivity level.

‘Just Like Home’ Boarding Program
Now your dog never has to miss another day of play and training at the school!

Intensive Board & Train
Intensive Board & Train
We know that families want their dog trained NOW, and that’s why we created this program! Your dog will spend each day playing and training at school, going on field trips, and learning how to behave in many different scenarios. And because your dog sleeps at his trainer’s home (and not in a lonely kennel run!), the training will easily transfer into your home! We’ll meet with you to create a training plan for your unique dogs and needs!
Puppy Boot Camp
Puppy Boot Camp
Our famous Puppy Boot Camp Program is open to puppies between the age of 8 weeks and 6 months. Each day will be spent playing, training, and learning critical socialization skills (with people *and* dogs!). PLUS, because your dog sleeps at his trainer’s home (and not in a lonely kennel run!), we’ll be able to handle housebreaking in a real life setting, so all the training will easily transfer into your home!
A member of our Playcare team (who probably already knows your dog!) will come to your home and take your dog on a mentally AND physically engaging walk. Each walk will be geared to the goals set by you (long/slow walk, brisk/short walk, intervals) as well as the physicality/fitness level of the dog.
AquaPaws SS is a unique underwater treadmill system specifically designed to give dogs the benefits of aquatic therapy for training and conditioning with increased cardio and muscle strengthening, rehab from injury, and general exercise for wellness, weight loss, *and* as an outlet for excess energy!
A dog running through a house should never sound like Fred and Ginger rehearsing their next big dance number. You know this, and yet, the thought of clipping your dog’s nails ranks up there with performing some You-Tube guided self-dentistry. Besides, we LOVE doing nail trims! And we’re experts at it, so there’s that. We’ll either clip or dremel your dogs nails, the choice is yours. You can buy a nail service ‘per trim’, or in a package. But get the package, because…..nails grow!
Ear cleaning is SUCH an important part of your dog’s grooming needs! We’ll spare you the stories (and pictures!), but suffice it to say that we’ve seen really dirty ears that without cleaning would have resulted in redness, irritation, and ultimately infection. For this service, we’ll trim the excess hair and make sure your dog’s ears are squeaky clean.
You brush your teeth. Your dog needs his brushed, too. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, 80% of all dogs develop some sort of dental disease by age *3*. Without proper dental care, they’re prone to plaque build up, and developing painful dental disease which can result in infections and tooth extractions. Ouch! We offer teeth brushing services that can be added on to your dog’s Grooming, PlayCare, FastTrack, or Boarding stay, to help maximize his dental health, and minimize your vet bills!
Seminars & Workshops
For humans to effectively communicate, we’ve devised an immense vocabulary, but our dogs are limited to ‘words’ formed by their body parts. Understanding what your dog is saying is extremely important to prevent bites, fights, and miscommunications between dogs and humans, and dogs and dogs.
Dog Park Class
We’ll teach you how to read your dog’s body language in real time, so you’ll understand when a dog wants more interaction, and when he’s saying “No, thank you!” Knowing those signals gives you the ability to interrupt bad play, and encourage good, healthy interactions.
Registration is required, and groups are formed based on sizes and play styles to ensure the best social climate for the dogs!
One of the best ways to have fun with your puppy, create a strong bond, AND give him a brain and body workout is to focus on one of the most underappreciated assets that he has: His incredible nose! Join us for a fun and interactive class, where we teach you and your puppy how to unlock the power of the nose.
