Canine Programs

Whether you want to address specific behavior issues, establish basic obedience skills, or train your dog for service, we have various programs that will meet your needs.

Basic Board & Train

This 3- to 4-week boot camp program will jump-start your dog’s training. It’s one-on-one training with your dog daily. We video the dog’s progress during the last week of training and send it to you as a training tool. This class is generally for dogs a minimum of 5 months old. This course is great for big or dominant dogs with unruly behaviors.


Outside evaluators for an AKC CGC certificate are available upon request. We include a 1-hour handler course and all training equipment. Due to the nature of the board and train course, availability is limited.

Advanced Board & Train

Dogs must meet a minimum level of obedience to qualify for this course. Our advanced course is an off-leash 3 to 4-week boot camp program that includes all the same basic obedience cues except done off-leash. We include a few additional cues with hand signals.


This class is great for those seeking to interact with their dog in a more sophisticated way at home or in public. Due to the nature of the board and train course, availability is limited.

Service Dog Training

This is a comprehensive class that deals with Canine Good Citizen, Public Access, leash work, command and control, and verbal and non-verbal cues.


We emphasize control with the handler and develop a higher level of communication between the handler and the service dog. Some classes may be approved for Veteran GI Bill or Law Enforcement Agencies.

Private Lessons

Are you interested in doing all the tough work and daily training to help your dog succeed?

You may enjoy our private lessons. You will attend weekly one-on-one lessons with your trainer and dog to learn all the necessary skills to become a well-rounded dog citizen, practice weekly homework, and continue to see improvement.

All ages are welcome to participate in private lessons.

Fresh Start Puppy Classes

Our fresh start puppy classes are a 2-week board and train program. This class is for puppies starting at 4 months old. Puppies will learn to sit, down, and leash walking. They will also be socialized in public places and around other animals. Crate training and imprinting are also available upon request.


The fresh start classes include a handler class for you when you pick the puppy up. This class will help move your puppy toward achieving their AKC STAR puppy certificate.

Nutrition Guide

We recommend a raw food diet for dogs at all stages of life, but especially during times of intensive training. 


We offer training for the handler to learn how to implement a raw food diet. This diet can be provided during the courses listed above but will be at an extra cost during the board and train courses.


Please inquire about course discounts for first responders and active military members.
