Our Behavior Program is designed to strengthen the bond between dogs and their owners and keep dogs in caring homes by teaching owners how to train them with positive reinforcement & the most current training methods. These sessions will feature a CACTP certified instructor to help you with teaching your best friend some basic commands. We are now offering AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy for dogs up to one-year-old, Basic Training, Intermediate, and Canine Good Citizen.

*These sessions are for the public and their owned dogs – you do not have to be a previous adopter to attend.



Does your dog have a specific behavior that you’re looking to change, or even create? Or do you just prefer private instruction for your best friend? Private sessions may be perfect for you and your dog! Sign up above for a free 30-minute consult with our CACTP Behavior Coordinator to discuss if private sessions are right for you and your dog

You and your dog should both enjoy training!
