Does your dog bark excessively, jump up on guests at the door, steal food off the counter or run out the door when he gets the chance, and not come back when you call?

  • New pet adoption/New puppy selection counseling and temperament testing
  • AKC Canine Good Citizen and Star Puppy training and testing.
  • Treibball classes, coaching and workshops available.
