New Training Programs in September

September Events

If they don’t use it, they will lose it!  Training is for life.

Dogs like people can learn something new however will not retain the new knowledge unless they are consistently utilizing it. At The Dog Stop we offer a variety of training programs to allow you and your dog to maintain the new knowledge.  The Dog Stop provides training from starting off your dog right with Puppy Progress, to teaching them the basics with our Basic Obedience, to moving on to Social Obedience, an ongoing class that provides distraction and training for life. If you don’t have time for group classes, we also provide Day Training and Private Training Programs.

Starting in September we have an abundance of training so that you and your dog can USE IT instead of LOSING IT!
