All puppies must be current on vaccines including distemper, rabies (age dependent) and kennel cough.

If you enroll your dog in only one class in its life, make it Basic Obedience. In this class we cover the commands of sit, sit-stay, down, down-stay, loose leash walking, wait, leave it, place and more. More important than the actual commands, owners are taught HOW to teach their dog in a motivational, non-stressful way. Once you learn how to communicate, the sky is the limit! All dogs must be current on vaccines including distemper, rabies and kennel cough.

Looking to go beyond Basic Obedience? In this class, we take the basic skills and increase duration, distance and distraction.
