Welcome to our new site! We are growing and changing and we thought it was time to dust off the cobwebs and freshen up the site to reflect some of our recent changes. We’ve changed physical locations – from Florida to the High Country of North Carolina. We’ve grown – both by expanding our team and adding The Center for K9 Excellence. And, we have exciting things in-store for you in 2018.
We will be offering a variety of group training classes this year. Together, we can offer you more variety in training classes than we could have individually. Look for puppy &basic manners/obedience classes, Nose Work, Control Unleashed, Clicker Foundations, confidence building for the shy dog and more.
Our private training sessions will be conducted in The Dog House – our base of operations that is a home-like setting with all the comforts of home. What better way to help your dog or puppy generalize his newly learned skills to home than practicing in a home?
Day training is like day school for your dog or puppy. You drop your dog off in the morning, we provide him with multiple, short training sessions throughout the day and you pick up a tired, trained dog at the end of the day. Because we have thousands of hours teaching dogs and their owners new skills, we can teach your dog or puppy skills faster than you can. We can get him well-started on new behaviors and then teach you how to follow-up at home.
We’ve expanded our board and train program and both Marge and Lisa will work with your dog or puppy during his stay. Board and train is a great way to get your puppy off to a good start or a wonderful option for dogs in need of behavior modification.
In addition to our large, fenced ring and The Dog House, The Center for K9 Excellence is located on 15 acres of private land with hiking trails. Hiking the trails is a great way for you to warm-up before or decompress after a training session.
We are Fear Free Certified Professionals. In addition to assisting Boone Animal Hospitals as they transition to Fear Free, we provide continuing education opportunities for veterinarians and their teams.
All of this is just the tip of the iceberg. We hope to offer “Stay and Train” – a vacation & training getaway for you at our center. We also hope to host some dog sport seminars, including Nose Work. Stay tuned for more information!
In the meantime, take a look around and let us know what you think!
