Professional Dog Training from Start to Finish

Our board and train programs are perfect if you are you going on vacation, running low on time, or having issues that need help from a professional dog trainer to fix. For many dog owners, this is the most practical way to get results. However, a large number of our clients are simply wanting what is the absolute best for their dog!
Our dog trainers specialize in relaxation exercises, conflict-free techniques, manners, obedience, dog rehabilitation and advanced behavior modification. We train using a motivational game style of learning that creates an optimistic dog that WANTS to engage with you. 
In addition, Chucktown Charley is unique! We are the only training and behavior retreat in our area that also offers boarding and daycare, as well.
To keep the quality of our services high, we meet with you for a discovery session. We discuss in detail the goals you have for training. We then customize a training plan specific to your wants and needs.  The discovery session is free and no-obligation. Choosing a dog trainer is an important decision. Therefore, we want you to be completely comfortable before selecting us to train and care for your dog.
