Want your dog to stop pulling on their leash? Stop jumping on guest? Come back when called? Sit or lie down the first time you ask but just don’t have a schedule that allows for you to make it to weekly group classes or spend hours training your dog. Let us do the work for you. Day Training is a great option to help busy pet owners fix basic obedience issues or gain on and off-leash reliability.
So what Is Day Training?
Day training allows your dog to have the benefits of a board and train program without having to send them away for weeks on end. Your dog gets dropped off in the morning, trains with a certified trainer and then gets to go home at the end of the day! All Day Training programs include private training sessions for the owners to show you how to apply and maintain your dogs new training.
Want your dog to get some playtime in while training? We have programs for that!
Have a day you won’t be able to drop your dog off for training or be able to pick them up after? Not an issue. We offer shuttle service!
All training programs run Monday through Friday. You can drop off any time before 10 am and pick up any time after 4:30 pm

Dealing with dogs that show fear aggressive or dominate behavior towards people or other animals can be a daunting task. Many times guidance from a professional can drastically help this problem behavior or end it all together. Behavior modification training is for dogs that have started to display aggressive behaviors (teeth showing, growing, nipping) over objects or towards people and other animals.
