Are Private Obedience Lessons Right for Me and my Dog?
​If you would like information about our Private Lessons, please call us at 440-255-3500. We will do a brief phone interview to see if Private Lessons are the best option for you and your pet. Private Lessons can be arranged at your home or at our facility.
