Welcome to All-Star Canine

We're committed to helping you create a positive and lasting relationship between you and your dog. Many behavior problems can be prevented or solved with positive, consistent training and socialization.

All-Star Canine Class teaches you how to train your dog to:

  • Come when called.
  • Sit.
  • Go to bed.
  • Leash walking mechanics.
  • Stay.
  • Canine body language.
  • Leave it.
  • And much more.

To aid in training, please bring treats your dog loves to every class!
