Teaching & Training

Teaching & Training

We do training for basic obedience and  therapy animal & handler skills. The techniques we use all depend on your goals and your animal’s needs. No matter how old your companion is, it’s best to start right away. Contact us for more information. We will schedule an initial meeting to discuss your needs, our services, and AKC and Pet Partners policies.
NOTE:
We do not train service animals or handle aggression issues.
