Indoor Dog Activity, Swimming and Training Center

For lack of a better term we are like a YMCA for dogs.  We have classes both day and evening.  We have organized games and events that you can bring your dog and participate and we have programs that allow you to drop your dog off and we play and train them.  We have a swimming pool that your dog can swim in.  We even have play spaces that are available for rent* restrictions apply.    We are NOT an off leash dog park.

Puppy Programs!!  Off-Leash Class starts soon

So much focus has been placed on obedience for young puppies but are we

missing the big picture??  I meet a lot of puppies who are not in a puppy class or

and they are not learning how to live in a human world.  I think many owners 

don’t understand that puppy class is not just about sit, down and stay.   Visit our

puppy page  to see what is important to teach a puppy and what we offer

Interested in starting Agility?

We have Introduction to Agility classes starting soon.  Learn to get your dog go

through a tunnel, jump through a hoop or climb the A-frame. New classes start

soon.   check the schedule

Interested in other classes?

We are not just about agility.  We have lots of other classes that are fun and

enriching.  Most of the time you can find what you are looking for.  New classes

starting all of the time.  See our class list  for all of the classes we offer.
