Group Classes

Our Smart Way Classes will provide solutions to every challenge presented to our experienced trainers at SDS. Whether it’s jumping on people, pulling on the leash, barking, whining or herding the children, SDS will attack these issues head on and together will discover a solution and help you implement the necessary changes to achieve lasting results.

Tuesday & Thursday at 6pm and Saturday at 1pm. You can take advantage of UNLIMITED Group Classes for 6 Months.


Private Classes

Work with one of our experienced trainers on any of the dozens of behavioral and/or training challenges that your dogs display a daily basis. This is your time to fix problem behaviors and develop new acceptable ones. Our trainers will not only show you how your dogs behaviors can transform in front of your eyes but more importantly how you can get the same results in your day to day life.
