Train & Play™

The goal of Train & Play™ is to create an environment to teach impulse control, appropriate social skills, basic obedience, and provide enrichment to the dogs.  We strive to teach you and your dog the necessary skills to develop good house manners, engagement, and proper etiquette when in the community.  Some key benefits of our Train & Play™ program include; smaller group sizes providing higher quality play groups, a lower staff to dog ratio, time with their trainer one-on-one to build better relationships, and enrichment activities to teach dogs how to self entertain and problem solve.
