We have trained many breeds of dogs since beginning in 1992 and have bred/trained German Shepherds since then as well. For a dog to be a well-rounded member of the family, quality dog training and proper socialization is a must. Our experience with many different types of dogs in several different training venues has given us a solid training strategy and the skills necessary to accomplish training goals. All of our trainers are certified by quality dog trainer schools (some by our own Dog Trainer College), ranging from obedience trainer to Master Trainer!

Our Dog Training Passion

dog training indiana
Our interest in working dogs evolved from a desire for security but also wanting a partnership with a dog that has a demanding job to do. The basset hound lazily lying on the front porch has its attraction, no doubt. However, our passion is working side by side with a dog that is properly and knowledgeably trained and seeing him perform his assignment to his maximum potential! Nothing compares with working a dog that possesses a stable temperament, steady nerves, and an overwhelming desire to work for his/her human. Our dogs are more than pets, more than “stock;” they are family.
