Experienced & Professional

Ocala's Best Dog Trainers!

Results Guaranteed & Lifetime Support

Family-Owned & Operated

Every dog can learn, no matter the age or history.

Our #1 training program with a focus on obedience.

We focus on – leash obedience, place work, off-leash recall, and cover all aspects of livability, control, and environmental neutrality. Often behavioral issues all come down to confusion and the dog having no idea what the desired behavior is. Teaching the dog impulse control and self-capping drive and teaching the dog how to communicate is critical for long-term success.

"I am very impressed with the work ethic and dedication of this board and train business. They begin by listening attentively to owners about the dog’s needs, their concerns, their trials and their hopes for their dog’s future. From the moment that the dog is accepted into their care, the dog is treated as if they are their own personal pet."
