🌟 Twice-Monthly Practices: Experience the thrill of bonding with your dog and fellow team members during our enjoyable, collaborative practice sessions held on Saturday mornings. It’s a time for learning, laughter, and building unforgettable memories.
PLEASE NOTE: We ARE NOT able to have dogs with behavioral problems, dogs who are disruptive in a kennel or for reactive dogs (dogs that growl, bark or lunge on leash) on the Demo Team. We do have training options specifically designed for dogs with behavioral challenges.
