Training is one of your dog’s most basic needs and we’re here to help! Our professional puppy training classes will teach your furry friends to be well-behaved while they’re still young.

Pet Tested, Owner Approved

I took my dog there for puppy classes, which was so much fun and super useful. The owners are amazing and care about all their customers and everything in their shop, from products to classes to grooming. My dog's first haircut was here and their groomers did an incredible job and I continue to bring my fur baby back regularly. They're definitely your go-to place for anything regarding your pets!
