Want a Well Behaved Dog?
We Know just the Trick.

Come. Sit. Stay a while. After a short time at Best Friends, your wish for a “good dog” is our command.

We offer a wide variety of dog training classes to fit dogs from puppyhood to adult. Our unique Board & Train program allows your pet to have one-on-one training while he stays the night. Imagine, going away and coming back to a dog who no longer eats your shoes!

Our training techniques, taught by experienced instructors, are always positively reinforced. And class sizes are small, ensuring your pet gets the attention he or she deserves.

For both pets and their owners, training at Best Friends is the REAL treat.


Puppy Preschool
For puppies age 12 to 20 weeks This 4 week course is geared toward socialization, problem solving and teaching puppies to be attentive and learn simple behaviors in the presence of other puppies and people. They CAN do it!!! Every week has a new themed "real life" scenario we will practice for.


Puppy Next Steps
For pups 5 to 14 months. Prerequisite: Puppy Preschool or similar. This 6 week course focuses on impulse control for adolescent puppies and teaches basic manners and obedience cues including, Name Recognition, Focus and Attention, Sit, Down, Stay, Come when called, Walking nicely on leash, Leave it, Take it, and Drop it.


Good Dog! Adult Canine Education
For dogs one year old and up. No prerequisite. Suitable for beginners with no prior training and dogs who already know the basics and are ready to take their training to a more advanced level. In this class we will challenge each team at their individual skill level by increasing difficulty, duration, distance and distractions in a controlled manner.


Private Lessons
Day by day sessions that provide the extra help that you and your dog need. If you would prefer a training class that is one on one or have specific issues that need to be addressed, this option is for you. These classes are personally tailored to your particular needs. These classes will be billed directly by the Trainer.

Obedience    $65/hr

Behavior       $75/hr

Board and Train
Five hours (one week) or ten hours (two week) of personal one on one training while enjoying a stay at Best Friends. Your dog will have a custom training program tailored to your needs. Upon pick up, we will teach and show you everything that your dog has learned. You will have available to you a one hour long follow up visit with the trainer to reinforce the lessons learned, answer any questions or help you with continuing the training at home. Please note that Board and Train is not appropriate in some instances. It is not recommended for behaviors that can’t be replicated in the boarding environment (example: potty training). Also, the success of this option depends on you following up with training at home or in class. Please speak to the trainer for further details.

One Week        $465

Two Week        $805
