We believe dogs need structure in their daily lives - they need to know what to expect and what is appropriate. We believe in teaching dogs structure in their day-to-day interactions with each other and people, keeping lessons clear and positive.
Both owners are well-known in the Roanoke Valley and frequently showcase their abilities at local events (including Woofstock, Pet Ex, Dogtoberfest, and the Roanoke Go Fest). Come out and see us in action!
