Competition and Tricks Classes
Our dog sport and tricks classes are a step above the rest when it comes to customer service and attention to detail. Large and chaotic group classes provide very little individual attention, short practice time, and often leave the owner feeling as if there wasn't much accomplished or confused about how to proceed with the training. We offer small group dog training classes where each dog and owner will receive one-on-one coaching, with the opportunity to practice around other dogs and people in a controlled, fun environment.
During each dog training session, we have three goals in mind:
- We want our clients to see results
- We want our clients to have fun training their dog, and their dog to enjoy the training
- We want the client and their dog to improve their relationship and strengthen their bond through positive interaction, communication and respect.
