Why should I train my dog?
A well-trained dog becomes an enjoyable companion as well as an
asset to the family. He can go many more places than an
untrained one. All dogs need leadership and structure
in order to be content in the home environment. Most people
struggle with that concept and don't know how to go about it. They
think just loving the dog will in turn make the dog love them and
therefore the pet will voluntarily comply with the owner's wishes.
Think again! Dogs are pack animals and only follow you if you are
the leader! This is where a well-conducted training class comes in.
We will teach you how to be your dogs leader. Remember the "dog
whisperer"? "Rules, boundaries and limitations!"
What kind of training does my dog need?
Every dog should start off with Basic

life. All training is done on leash. Your dog will learn
heel on a loose leash,
stay, and wait at a door and come when called.

to go a lot further than just the basics. Check out a few
