We use agility obstacle training for confidence building exercises, and provide instruction on housetraining, chewing, jumping, mouthing, barking and any other small problem that may cause a larger problem later down the road. We also cover basic health care and daily grooming. Gentle motivational training techniques are utilized, and we place a strong emphasis on socialization and directed play.
