Do you have a new puppy?
Is your puppy showing some undesirable behaviors that you want to fix?
Are you looking for a place to safely socialize and train your puppy to be the best dog he can be?
Look no further! We offer several different tiers of puppy training solutions. Our expert team of dog trainers will coach you through raising your puppy to become an outstanding adult dog you'll enjoy for years to come.
(These solutions are for puppies under 6 months old.

Puppy Day School is our most popular and comprehensive puppy training program. Your puppy attends school here Monday through Friday during the day, playing with their friends and learning in training sessions with our staff. We work on potty training, crate training, sit, down, coming when called, walking politely on leash, greeting people politely, accepting body handling & restraint, and lying on a mat.
This all-inclusive program includes weekly report cards, weekly Puppy Teacher Conferences with one of our trainers who will coach you on what your puppy has learned, and access to our Flex Class program and and Friday night Puppy Playgroups.
Puppy Jumpstart is our in-home private lesson program. A trainer comes to your home to coach you to raise your puppy, and you follow their instructions and do the training yourself. The “bonus” version of this program also includes 10 Flex Classes at our facility.
Flex Classes are our group training option. Instead of splitting classes by the dog’s age, we teach classes on different topics, and you attend the classes that interest you. We have 4 core manners classes (Polite in Public, Come This Way, Settle & Stay Put, and Self-Control), 3 advanced manners classes (Power Walking, Recall Mastery, & CGC Prep), and a variety of elective classes and workshops, too.
There are some puppy raising topics that aren’t covered in Flex Classes, so we generally recommend the first two options above, but Flex Classes are still a great option for families on a tight budget.
Don't wait for your puppy's vaccines to be "complete!"
This well-meaning advice is now outdated.

Our programs meet or exceed the health recommendations set by AVSAB.
