PROS: Affordable education
CONS: Red tape
We took our puppy here for puppy kindergarten and loved it. Our instructor was kind and clearly had a love for dogs. The training tips were useful then and now. It was also a great place to socialize our pup. The price is reasonable and the quality of the training was excellent. We would take another class to hone our dogs skills if it fits into our schedule in the future.
PROS: Great instructors
