Dog training classes and Day School start in March. Join our newsletter (above) to be notified when registration opens.

We know you love your dog.

And we know it can be frustrating when your best friend jumps on you, drags you on walks, steals shoes and snacks, or barks at other dogs and people.

We can help.

Our experienced instructors make dog training fun and effective to bring out the best in your dog.

Let’s get started.

Classes & Workshops

Great canine companions start here. Enjoy a dog who can say hello without jumping, walk without pulling, and come when called. Try something new with agility, nosework, disc, or tricks. You’ll get plenty of individual attention in our small group classes and workshops in Kalamazoo and Fennville.


Prefer to train on your schedule?  Need help with a behavior issue?  We offer one-on-one training for you and your dog, personalized to meet your needs, and scheduled to fit in your busy life. Lessons are available for good manners, behavior issues, and dog sports.
