K9 University

Don’t have time to train your dog? We can help!

While your dog is in Playcare or Boarding at Leashes and Leads, a professional dog trainer can train your dog for you; therefore, you will have a tired and better mannered pup to bring home! While being at our facility one of our professional trainers will work with them one-on-one each session on a specified skills of your choice. Maybe your dog needs some refresher sessions to reinforce previously learned skills, or maybe there’s a problem behavior at home that one of our trainers can address. Whatever the need is, our trainers would love to help your beloved 4-legged friend be the best they can be!
