Obedience Classes - (one dog per family per class)

AKC Star Puppy

Puppy class is the first step to a lifetime of good dog manners, socialization and education. Owners will have fun with their puppy as they are being taught basic commands on a puppy level. Any problems you may have with your puppy such as housebreaking, walking on a leash, etc. will be addressed.
