Our dog training philosophy....

Along with Lucky Dog Retreat, Lucky Dog Retreat Rescue (501c3) is a rescue organization that has saved over 800 dogs from our local pound. All our trainers have competed with their dogs in agility, disc dog, dock diving or obedience. We teach in a respectful and positive environment that encourages dogs and owners to work as a team. Training your dog should be fun and rewarding.

Reactive Dog Class

A unique class that addresses a dog's natural reaction to fear. Offensive (reactive) and defensive (fearful) responses to fear.


The first class is discussion only and remaining classes provide practice time and workshops applying new skills with your dog.

Dog FUN classes

Each class is a different set of skills. We work around the following 1-2 hours sessions.

  • Clicker Training and Tricks
  • Sports: Agility, Dock Diving, Disc Dog
  • Nosework
  • Fitness and Conditioning

APDT & CGC Certifications

These sessions are for experienced dogs that would like to earn titles or enter a therapy dog program.

  • Session 1: walk though and practice
  • Session 2: evaluation

Time can be scheduled to address areas that need work before the certification. Usually we set aside 2 weeks between the walk through and the final certification.
