Private In-Home Dog Training

We will work specifically on concerns you have with your dog inside and outside of your home while building a long-lasting foundation.
We have one time sessions or we have 3, 6,10 and 20 session packages.
We are here for you and your dog.
There is NO contract required. All packages are non-refundable.
If you do not love what you see in your first session do not sign up for additional lessons.


We are not a boarding facility. We have a loving home environment.
To maintain the highest quality of care, we limit the number of guests we have each day.  For this reason, reservations are required for lodging.

Day Camp is also included with all lodging stays. 
There is no extra charge for walks, runs, bike rides, snuggle time, individual playtime, treats and medicine administration.
