We do it all for the love of the dog

A properly trained dog is a happy healthy pet and nobody understands that better than Northern Sky Obedience Academy. Our goal is to provide you and your four-legged family member the best one on one dog training available in your area. All puppy and adult dog training services are individually tailored to fit your pet's personality and meet your needs.

 

While professional one on one dog training may cost more than conventional club training or large group classes the benefits greatly outweigh the additional investment. Large class enviorments seldom provide the results you desire due to the lack of individual attention. The benefits of professional and individual dog training include:

 

* one-on-one training designed to meet your dog's personality, aptitude, social    development, and your family's goals

 

* all of the attention during your training session will be focused on you and your dog

 

* training sessions can be scheduled to match your calendar

 

* continuing assistance is always available

 

* you will be working with a professionally trained and experienced certified dog trainer,one familiar with various training methods and problem solving techniques.

 

* you and your dog will not get lost in the circus atmosphere of group sessions, club training or pet store classes
