Dog Trainers and Training

Information on Dog Training

We recommend Clicker Training over traditional dog training for many reasons but the best one is that it works the fastest,and  it is tons fun for both you and your dogs.  For aggression issues in Cocker Spaniels it is the only training we can recommend.
