​Since 1998, the Pet Campus has been

keeping your relationship strong with your

dog, while providing a top notch education.  

 

A well-trained dog is a pleasure to live with and can be truly enjoyed as a companion. Dogs without structure and direction are more likely to be insecure, destructive, stressed and confused. Start your dog's education early, as puppies begin learning as young as 5 weeks of age. Enroll in our puppy program and start off right, building a well behaved adult dog.

The Pet Campus Philosophy

Scientific research shows that animals learn faster and retain more readily when taught using positive reinforcement. A successful relationship is created between dog and human by building trust and mutual understanding.

 

We believe in and use only humane training methods that enhance the communication between handler and dog. We teach our classes using positive-reinforcement based training and encourage the use of “people empowering” techniques in our classes. We do not use or tolerate force based nor inhumane punishment-based methods.

The Pet Campus staff recognizes that animals have a full range of emotions and a personal history. Both are taken into consideration as each staff member interacts with your pet. Our aim is to recognize the individuality of each pet and treat each pet in accordance with their individual needs in order to provide the least stress, the best possible care and the utmost happiness for them while they are in our care. Through highly qualified staff, exemplary training programs, and educated dog owners, The Pet Campus is dedicated to the relationship between dog owner, their pets, and the community.
