Puppy S.T.A.R.

Puppies are adorable little balls of cuteness—and they can drive you downright crazy. I help you get yours under control and help it grow up into the dog of your dreams with a curriculum based on the AKC’s S.T.A.R. Puppy® Program. We’ll work on basic foundations like sit, down, name recognition, come, walking nicely on leash, look, take it and give it. We’ll also work on getting all the crazy energy under control, including the biting and chewing and jumping. Oh, and house training—don’t worry, we won’t forget that!

Puppy 2/Adolescence

Raising teenagers is never easy—be they human or canine—but a little training can go a long way. We’ll focus on self-control through exercises around settling and relaxing next to you, sit-stays for saying hello and being petted, walking nicely on leash without pulling, and leave it. And we’ll teach your dog to pay attention to you by working on coming when called, look, and check-ins. In short, we’ll get you through your dog’s adolescence by building the training foundation for a well-behaved dog.

What our clients say

Click on the video below to see a customer testimonial.



We know that scheduling for a 5 or 6 week class commitment can be challenging for you and your four-legged companion. We offer classes that are either once a month and/or three week sessions for you and your dog to brush up on specific skills. If you want a more reliable Come, the class will focus only on Comes with organized fun activities for increasing your dog’s attention with distances and distractions to Come to you. If your dog is dragging you down the street, but does everything else pretty well, we offer a class only on Leash Walking. Some would love to have an organized play group session periodically which we offer once a month. Check out our Facebook page in the Events section for Promotional Classes!
