Agility Training Class is seasonal. We do this indoors, outdoors, and privately–at clients' homes. We bring the equipment to you! This class is designed to provide you and your canine some exercise, bonding and new challenges.

The Canine Good Citizen Program© of the American Kennel Club (AKC) is designed to recognize dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. This rapidly growing, nationally recognized program, stresses responsible dog ownership for owners and basic training and good manners for dogs.

Leave your doggie with us and we train her/him, then we train you–for free, with a lifetime guarantee. This program is for owners whose busy schedules do not permit them to initially be actively involved in their dog’s training.  During their stay we address key basic obedience and behavioral issues in a real life “home” enviroment.

If you prefer the convenience and privacy of In-Home Training, we can work with you one-on-one. This format lends itself to addressing specific behavioral problems. Because we know how hectic life can be, we customize a 6 week program that fits into your busy lifestyle and accommodates your schedule.

These classes educate both the puppy and the owner. During the classes, owners will be given feedback and individual instruction pertaining to the most important training techniques for their puppy. The techniques are chosen based on the breed’s temperament, the progress the dog is accomplishing, and the capabilities of the owner.
