All Breed Obedience Training
I tell people all the time that teaching your dog to come when it is called and socializing it with other dogs and people at a young age is the best and most important thing that you can do for your dog! That being said, there is SO much more that you can teach your dog, from tricks, to walking politely on a lead, to AKC Rally. You will find that the more you teach and work with your dog the happier you and your dog will be. If you don't have time to do this on your own or are having troubles keep reading!
At my Obedience Training and Boarding School in Scappoose, Oregon which is a short distance north of Portland, Oregon and south of Longview Washington I offer dog obedience training for every level and breed of dog. Whether it is socializing your recently adopted shelter dog in a Basic Obedience Class, teaching your over-excited dog to walk nicely on a lead while boarding, or competition obedience private lessons, I have a plan for you.
