Training Programs

We understand that each dog is unique, and so are their needs. As we discuss your needs and goals for dog training, our staff will help you devise a plan of attack to get your four-legged friend trained in no time!

Testimonial Emily Elise

Sierra has helped us so much with our pup! The plan is service training, and so it was important for us to have a strong start with our rescue mutt. Not only did she train the dog – she trained us (which, let’s be honest, we are really who needed it) on how to help our pup succeed. I really appreciate that she took the time to do a follow up train and has checked in to make sure we are still doing ok. We are, and it’s because of Marcum! Our dog can place anywhere, hold a sit, and walk right at our side!
