Dog Training

We have a state of the art training facility that will meet your needs and those of your beloved animal. We offer puppy, basic obedience, agility, conformation classes and private training sessions.

Our trainers have experience in many different areas including dog behavior and agility to conformation and competitive obedience. They regularly attend seminars to stay updated on new training techniques and to keep their skills in tip top shape. Many of our trainers also compete in different venues and all have earned titles in their venue of interest. In fact, Alice Howe, with her golden retriever Bobbi, was the 1st Minnesota team to achieve both Agility and Obedience Championship titles!
