  • Novice Rally: Characteristics of sports car racing, dog agility and traditional canine obedience combine to form the fun sport of Rally. Dog and handler teams navigate a course at a brisk, continuous pace with numbered signs indicating different exercises to perform at each station.

  • Sport Sampler: Want to have fun with your dog, but not sure which sport to try? Why not try them all?

Doggy Boot Camp is a perfect solution for owners with busy schedules and/or who find themselves overwhelmed by their dog's current behavior. Your dog is boarded during the intensive training. We train your dog and then we train you.

Day Training is another perfect solution for owners with busy schedules. We train your dog and then we train you.

A cost effective solution to training your dog on a schedule that works for you.

Why Consider Boarding with Pet Education and Therapy?  Why board your dog in a busy, load environment when you can instead leave your dog in the care of a knowledgeable trainer.  Why board your dog at a facility so contrary to what your dog is accustomed to on a daily basis when you can leave your dog in a home environment and treated like one of the family.

Facilities: Your dog is safely and securely boarded in the trainer's home.  This is a cage-free environment (unless safety indicates otherwise).

Exercise: Your dog will also receive at least one walk per day and four supervised mini play sessions in a fenced yard.

What You Bring: Sufficient supply of food for your dog's stay; two bowls (food & water); collar (no choke, prong, or electric collars); and 6 foot leash (no retractable or chain leashes).

Note: All dogs accepted for Boarding must be current on all vaccines including the Bordetella vaccine.

Cost: $50 plus tax per day

General Information:  You do not need to be present for these lessons. In the homeschool program, each home visit includes a private lesson for your dog, exercise and constructive playtime. Your dog will learn the skills necessary to be a well-behaved family member and companion.

This is a wonderful option for a busy family; a new puppy who isn’t ready to take classes; a shy dog who needs help gaining confidence; a reactive dog who is a little too much to handle in a classroom environment; a clever dog bored while you’re at work.

Your dog will learn behavior concepts quickly when handled by an expert trainer. And once they get the hang of these behaviors, we schedule “learning transfer” lessons so those skills are transferred to you as well..
