*Puppy and Adult Agility-multiple levels
*Flyball, Rally-O, and Fitpaws

Private training for any of the above areas and for behavior modification is available as well.

Open Agility WorkoutMondays 7-9.  Pre-requisite:  weave/teeter with no assistance, work off leash under control, classes thru trial preparation or the equivalent. 

Socialization Playgroups

Socialization is very important to the emotional well being of your puppy and adult dog.  Its been too hot for lots of outdoor play so bring the play in to the nice cool AC!  

COMING UP:  New Class Session

New Classes will begin the week of Sept. 26.  Get your puppy or dog into school for obedience skills, manners, and socialization so they are ready for the holidays!  Try agility or flyball to help your dog get not only physical but mental exercise as well. Wanting to do pet therapy?  Home Obedience 2 will help you prepare!  Well behaved family pets make outdoor activities more enjoyable for all!

Daycare and Boarding

Whether your dog is coming for the day to play,
or they need an overnight place to stay,
they will ALL have a great time at PPA!

Daycare and boarding group dogs are assessed by one of our training staff to ensure that they will be comfortable in group settings.  Boarding guests who are not able to be in groups get their exercise time with staff. 

All of our staff members are dog approved!



We provide grooming services to fit your needs as well.  Bring them in for a spa day: a little daycare and massaging warm bath to fight the bitter cold.
