TopnOPTCH Training

Our goal is to produce happy working dogs with satisfied owners. We will teach you to shower your dog with praise and love. Puppies, beginning dogs, and junior handlers are welcome. Help your dog learn to be a happy part of your family.

TopnOTCH Obedience and Agility classes are presented in seven week sessions, meeting one night a week. Class size is limited to assure that individual attention is given to each dog. Based on proven methods, these positive training techniques will ensure that you and your dog have a great time while learning.

Quality relationship between dog and owner should be the goal of every trainer and breeder. To that end, consistent and positive training should start on the first day. Positive reinforcement, lots of praise and loving are the foundation for successful training and lasting rewarding companionship.

Our trainers consistently strive for creative ways for all training classes to motivate both dog and handler. Their widespread experience, humane training methodology, behavioral knowledge and endless sense of humor make their classes fun and successful for both dog and handler. Feel free to drop by and observe the classes and meet the trainers.
