Levels Of Training

We offer Free Consultations!

At Trademark Kennels, we offer dog training programs that not only focus on fixing all of the problems you are having with your dog training, but we also expand the education and capabilities of the owner.  We Train with Tone, Touch, and Treats (or Toy)…our signature 3 T’s of training…a positive approach allowing your dog to respond to multiple forms of positive reinforcement at any time.

In addition to training, dogs participate in our daily exercise and socialization with a stable pack (if permitted).  We personalize each stay depending on your dog.  Your dog will enjoy the individualized attention as well as the pack-oriented experience.
