Our Behavioral Obedience Course
is a Guidance Based training program.

All exercises are designed for the success of your dog.
We will only ask them to do things that they can do.

You will give your dog a command, then guide your dog
to the correct behavior and then praise them...
failure is not an option, punishment is not necessary.

All of our courses are built on our unique cross training methods. Exercises are divided into a variety of categories to help you build a strong relationship with your dog while they develop a broad base of life skills.
