May 5, 2020:  In person classes have resumed, and private training is being offered at the training studio as well as via tele-training options like Zoom and FaceTime. (We have not yet resumed in-home training.) Changes to our class policies include limiting classes to four dogs, and only one person per dog. We also require face masks at the studio, and will re-evaluate monthly.  We look forward to seeing you soon!

This was the best class I’ve ever attended with my dog. Marie is an excellent instructor, giving quick feedback and clear instructions. My dog has progressed beyond my expectations. Do the homework and you won’t be disappointed!

There is only one word to describe your training skills, “AWESOME”. My husband and I simply could not believe that in just a few home training sessions you had taught Finnian sit, down, come, eye contact, touch my hand, place, wait, and touch the bell to signal he wanted to go outside. I highly recommend you.
