Training Classes and Services

Private and Group Classes At Our Facility

 

Training is conducted at our indoor-outdoor facility. Training sessions last from 50 minutes to 1 hour. Scheduling is required. Currently, we do not offer any group classes. Our class curriculums are very robust and do require owners to practice their training skills during off-class hours to have the best outcome.  Clients will be assigned fun and easily understood training exercises each week to practice. (Group classes will be coming shortly. Look for the scheduled in spring 2020).
