Congratulations to our most recent Whole Puppy Program and AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Graduates!


In Home Consults 

We come in your home and assess you and your dog(s) needs.  This includes assessing issues, training and a custom plan of action tailored specifically to your needs and abilities.

Whole Puppy Programs

We are with you from the start providing help with choosing the proper breeder and/or puppy.   This program starts with a home visit prior to the puppy coming home and includes 6 (1 1/2 hour) sessions in our private home (a safe/clean environment).  Sessions start upon your acquiring the puppy and will provide extensive education for you, and socialization and imprinting for the puppy.  At the completion of our program your puppy will have earned an AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy award.  Also included in our Whole Puppy Program are any questions you may have via phone support.  This is the most important training you can do for your puppy and it starts at the very beginning.  Set your new puppy up for success!

Private Instruction

We help teach you how to shape your dog’s behaviors and train for more reliable obedience work.  This can be done at your home or the location of our choice.  We also provide AKC Canine Good Citizen semi-private work and testing.
