Positive Reinforcement Mat Training with Charlie- 11 week old Labradoodle

How to pick the right service for your dog:

Group classes are a great opportunity for your puppy to interact with other puppies in a safe, controlled environment. They will also learn to work with you in the presence of other classmates.

Group classes may not be the best fit for every dog. Some dogs are uncomfortable around new people/dogs/environments. Don’t fret, in-home sessions are available! These sessions can include all the members of the family and/or one-on-one sessions between the trainer and dog. 

If you have any questions about the best training solution for you, please CONTACT US.
