dog care for a healthy and active lifestyle
For a happy & healthy relationship with your dog
At Doggie Playland, we offer a personalized approach to training. Our small class sizes (max 5 students) allow for more one on one time between owner and trainer. The trainer also adjusts each exercise to suit the skill level of each dog in the class to accommodate all types of learning.
We believe that training is an integral part of a happy and healthy relationship with your dog. It is also the basis for safe interaction and socialization of your best friend in any environment. Our training programs are designed to address every need, from basic obedience to more advanced techniques. We can also help you and your dog overcome problematic behavior and focus on building a bond that will last a lifetime.
In addition to work in classes, owners will be encouraged to work with their dog(s) off leash as much as possible throughout the course.
