Training Services


Training is the backbone of Dog University Where Dogs & Owners Go To School!

Because of the range of issues that we see in the dogs that come to us, from general manners to more serious aggression, our training services do not have a set curriculum and are instead tailored to the specific needs of your dog. 

We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all method to training, and understand that every dog is unique and learns differently, just like us humans. We’re committed to providing every dog that comes to us with the tools to live a safe, healthy and fulfilling life, so feel free to give us a call and schedule a behavioral evaluation to get the ball rolling!

The Best Services For Your Dog

The dogs that come to Dog University for training range from puppies learning basic obedience to dogs (of all ages) with aggression issues, and everything in between. Because we tailor our training curriculum to the specific needs of your dog rather than a set list of expectations, we recommend a behavioral evaluation before scheduling training, so we have an opportunity to come up with the best training program that we can for you and your dog.
