Dog Training Classes

Peninsula Pups is more than just a daycare! We also offer obedience classes led by our General Manager and Certified Dog Trainer, Colin Keith. Colin works in the daycare during the week and is an expert in dog behavior. He was schooled at Tarheel Canine Training in Sanford, NC and has over 25 years of dog training experience.  Colin is excellent at teaching you and your dog how to speak the same language. The commands learned are just a bonus though. The real reward is the special relationship that is built between you and your dog when you train together.
