Svajonė's Training 

Training

We are so excited to be offering multiple training programs for you and your dog! We are balanced method trainers. Every dog is different with their own unique training requirements, as no two dogs are the same. Each of our training programs may have universal goals for our 4 legged cadets, but each approach in their training is tailored by us for their needs. We are happy to provide more information for and answer any questions you have pertaining to our offered training programs.

We look forward to hearing from you!
