We offer two training packages for our rescue dogs.

Our shorter term training package is 3-4 weeks long with the average cost of $2400 (dog included). Our longer training package is 6-8 weeks and includes more advanced obedience skills and passing the CGC upon graduation with the average cost of $4000. In either case, your dog will come freshly groomed, spayed/neutered, microchipped and up to date on vet care.

We can help you determine which option is right for you!
