Canine Education Center

We boast a 50+ acre Canine Education Center just minutes from Interstate 77.  The Canine Education Center is home to our classrooms, pro shop and business offices as well as ample grounds for training. 


Our climate controlled classroom seats up to 30 students comfortably. Approximately 35% of the program time is spent in the classroom during lectures, discussions, videos, and other presentations. Our classroom is a short distance from our canine training center and transportation is available to and from, daily.  Classroom lectures and discussions give you the knowledge and fundamentals that you will apply during the hands-on training that takes place at our training center.

Pro Shop

Our pro shop is fully stocked with everything that you may need during our dog training programs.  From a variety of leashes and lines to a full line of Dogtra products and other gear at affordable prices.

Canine Development and Training Center

A great deal of the practical hands-on training is conducted at our nearby dog training center. We have 23+ spacious acres that offer a multitude of areas for training.  We have specific areas set up for detection training and we have access to countless areas nearby, such as warehouses, schools and vehicle lots, for detection training.  Our training center also has a dog safe rubble pile for training disaster search and rescue dogs and we have access to countless acres of wooded areas for training trailing and other search and rescue dogs for both live-find and cadaver detection. We have three sets of agility equipment, one for competition pet dog training and two for working dogs.   We also have a pond and dock that is often used in warmer months where dogs can cool off and exercise. 

At the training center you will find convenient restrooms, a refrigerator and freezer for dog treats and training aids and  WiFi access.
