Did someone mention Obedience, Tricks and Off-Leash?





It is the goal of WCHS to provide training programs that result in happy, confident and obedient dogs as well as happy, confident and satisfied owners.

We believe that our relationships with dogs should be achieved through comprehensive obedience training and owner education. We further believe that it is important to provide training classes in a positive environment to enable dogs to become safe, well-behaved, and valued family members. Dogs that have more serious behavior concerns requiring specific behavior correction may be referred to a behavior specialist.

(Or as always feel free to call us at 262-677-4388.)
