bodybullet.gifTraining Goals

Mary's training technique encourages your dog to learn and retain information. Whether your dog is dominant/aggressive or submissive/shy, she will work with you and your dog to determine the most effective and appropriate plan for the issues at hand and continue to work with you through a long-term maintenance plan.

Mary's goal is to help dogs and their owners communicate and coexist in harmony.

Classes are small and semi-private, consisting of three to seven students in lower level classes, providing your pet with the individual attention it deserves. Even the advanced classes are kept small, typically with up to eight students.

Training is held conveniently on weeknights and Sundays to encourage the attendance of all family members. Private classes are available by appointment on most days.

We offer over 15 different types of classes. Please Click on the red "CLICK HERE" to the left of this page just under the dog. You will be able to view a full list of all the courses, fees and dates that they are starting.
