Fusion Classes

Fusion classes are the combining of puppy and adults to cover basic obedience. This option is for limited time slots and the convenience of our busy clients. A combination of puppy and adult info is included.

Intermediate Fushion

These classes are the combining of adult and beginner classes who will be progressing into intermediate. Here we further their progression by increasing duration (time), distance and distractions.


In these classes, we are starting to fine tune the behaviors and increase the skill set. The information that was covered and learned in beginner is being covered more in depth and building direction, distractions and distance. Extreme leave it, meet and greets, stay with distractions and distance. Extended waits with distractions and heel.Phasing treats out a little more as well.


This is to take our dogs to the next level of being great. We are looking for precisions, improved listening skills, more behaviors offered and little to no treats. We’ll also introduce obstacle course training for more mental and physical stimulation not only for the dog but the parent as well.

*Dogs MUST be up to date on vaccines including H3N2 flu vaccine! Please call and confirm with your veterinary clinic.

Meet Our Trainier!

We are pleased to introduce Derrick S. Rollerson II. His philosophy of training is to develop a healthy bonding relationship between pets and pet parents. His training style incorporates a balance of reward-based (positive reinforcement) and correction-based (negative punishment -- which is simply the removal of praise when the wrong behavior is offered) training.
