Our Training programs and Services​

​​

Owning a dog is a life-time commitment. It is your commitment to your dog's training that will make both of you happy.

Our Training Programs are full of fun, learning and socialization's. We condition your dog to accept the activities of everyday life in and beyond the security of your home.

Our Trainers are of excellent knowledge and are wonderful behaviorists who are able to help you in all different aspects.

Our motivational dog training is done through positive reinforcement by rewarding the correct behavior with verbal praise, toys, treats or play.

Our Goal is to build a positive relationship between you and your dog and to give your guidance all the way.

Schutzhund Group

 

This is a very specialized Dog Sport. The dogs are trained in tracking, obedience and protection. All 3 phases require commitment, time and discipline.

The sport of Schutzhund originated in Germany and is a lot of fun for you and your dog, but it is very time consuming. It requires years of training to perfect and combine the best attributes of man/woman and dog.

 

Our training times are Wednesdays from 11 am - to open end.

 

On Saturdays we start with tracking @ 9 am.

At 11 am we meet at the field for obedience, followed by protection work. Schutzhund is an all day activity. 

 

Please visit Podium Club for more information.
