Our Training Philosophy: We are a positive training facility because scientific research shows that reward based training gets consistent results, is the most effective, the most safe and the most humane way to train, and helps you to build a successful partnership with your dog. That means that we do not allow the use of electric, prong or choke collars. Furthermore, we believe that you can teach dogs and effect change without the use of force. 

Update on classes 1/27/23: We now have a prerequisite that must be met prior to starting our agility program - a Basic Manners/Life Skills class that focuses on positive reinforcement, or the equivalent, MUST be completed with you as the handler prior to starting our Foundation (beginning) level classes. We now offer the class in house, so if you need to meet this prerequisite, and want to take the class here, please contact us. You do not have to take the class here, however.

For Foundation (beginning) classes: We currently have a long list of people interested in this level of class. We will not be taking any more names to that list for the time being until we work through some of the names that we already have. We are sorry we can't offer any more of these classes at this juncture.

For higher level classes: If you have done some agility elsewhere, we do schedule evaluations for a small fee to determine what level of class would be most appropriate for you and your dog. We do these evaluations only when we have class spots available.

We offer agility training group classes at every level from Basic Manners to the Masters Level. Most group classes are offered in a six-week session and classes are ongoing. Instructors vary depending on the class. Group classes require pre-registration.

We also offer Control Unleashed classes, Nosework classes and other options.

In addition to group classes, for our current students, we offer drop-in practice (Drop-Ins Do's and Don'ts here) in the main arena several times a week for a nominal fee. **Please note, as of 5/16/20, drop-ins are temporarily discontinued. If you are a current student here, private ring rental is available.**

In order to keep your dogs in tip-top shape, we also have Dr. Alice Baker Meuten ( available several times monthly for chiropractic adjustments, including acupuncture and laser treatments.

For massage, we have Emily Heitzmann ( available twice a week and Bill Capron (, co-owner of the facility, by appointment only.
