Dog Training, Boarding & Imported Dog Sales


Starting training early is crucial in creating a happy, confident adult dog. Did you know you can start training your puppy as early as 8 weeks old? You can and you SHOULD! Everything you do at that age will have a huge impact on the dog’s development, good or bad. Let us help you get started on the right foot!


Our 2 week board and train package focuses on obedience both on and off leash, from inside the home to higher distraction areas. Upon completion of this package, you will have complete and total control of your dog no matter the circumstance! We will provide you with a 100% reliable recall regardless of the environmental distractions. Our dog trainers will give you the best dog training available.


Our 4-6 week aggression rehab package is designed for dogs with aggression toward humans, dogs, cats, livestock, etc. In this package, your dog will be given the same level of obedience as our 2 week board and train in addition to rehabilitation work. Though we cannot guarantee to safely rehabilitate each and every dog, we will ensure that you have the control you need in order to live a more peaceful life with your dog.
