obie1-150x150OBEDIENCE:  Obedience work is the foundation of your relationship with your dog. Whether you have a family pet or a future world class competitor, solid introduction to basic obedience will lay the foundation for communication and an enjoyable lifelong partnership with your dog. Using positive methods including food, toys, play, and of course praise, you will learn how to get your dog’s attention, keep her focused, and to teach her to enjoy working with you. We offer both private and group instruction, depending on your needs.

Agility is a great way to continue to use your obedience training and further develop your relationship with your dog. Both you and your dog will exercise mind and body as you teach your teammate to negotiate obstacles and learn how to run a course. We offer classes and private instruction for all levels of agility.
