Extreme Weather


Classes will run as scheduled except in the event of extreme heat, in this case classes may be rescheduled to an earlier time or alternate weekend at the discretion of the trainers.

Our Training Methods


As with most animals, dogs learn best when positive reinforcement, force-free training techniques are used. It helps build a strong trusting human canine relationship.


There is a combination of training methods used that provides solid results. We use the lure/reward method to set your dog up for success.


We use *clicker (or marker) training to provide feedback to your dog and speed up leaning. We use shaping to assist with exercises that your dog may find more challenging by breaking the exercises into smaller components.


Food is our main reinforcer. However we do use play, praise and petting as reinforcement as well.
