Customized Training Packages That Meet Your (and your dogs) Needs

At Prairie Path we don’t take a one size fits all approach to dog training. We understand that every owner and dog are unique. While we strongly believe and advocate applying training to every animal, we understand some dogs and owners don’t require extensive training to live a happy life. We strive to fully understand our clients unique needs and provide a results driven program that will help them and their dog achieve their goals, both short and long-term. We have organized our training packages below to make choices simpler to understand and choose what’s right for you and your dog.

All of our training classes except for the Puppy Pre-school are designed in such a way that upon completion a trainer can work with your dog to pass an AKC exam. AKC certifications are recognized worldwide and are proof of an owner’s commitment to their dog’s good behavior and the dog’s accomplishment.
