Careers

We’re dog people.
We’re also people people.

That means we take the time to not only teach our PLD pups, but also their parents — and one another.

Because no matter how much we know, we always look forward to learning more. With the help of each dog’s family, we support loving, lifelong relationships — those based not solely on the strength of a single course, but on the collective commitment to repetition and reward.
