Is your dog having more fun in your home than everyone else in the family? Is your couch shredded? Maybe his morning is complete only after he’s pulled your wife down the street a time or two. Once the front door is open, forget about it. Come when called? You’ve got to be kidding. The games have begun.

Doggone Good: Basic Obedience

If this is your story, we have a plan for you. Our Basic Obedience class will transform your dog from irreverent and out of control to happy and skilled at basic dog obedience life skills. We know you think there’s no way he’ll lie down and stay for three minutes, but in our skilled instructor’s hands, he will.
