After Purchasing a Puppy, you can choose to have your dog trained here or you can Purchase a Trained Puppy, one already finished with Obedience from the Beginning Training Programs. We also offer training for German Shepherd puppies from other areas.

The training skills we teach are the basic fundamentals every puppy should know. Each program is custom tailored to suit each dog and family’s needs. All commands are taught in German unless otherwise specified. All dog training is conducted here at our location in Rochester, Washington served by PDX airport in Portland Oregon and SEA Seattle Washington State.
