We know your dog isn't just a dog- they're family. Wether mixed or purebred (we love all breeds), or whether you have a puppy, adolescent, mature or elderly dog, we have something to offer you. If you're still looking for the perfect dog we can help you select the right dog, if you already have a dog, we can help! The Canine Country School is a boarding and training facility located on the banks of the Colorado River. Positive, gentle, loving and effective training with patient, educated staff on a regular basis within a real home environment helps busy owners tap the full potential of their four-legged companion. Transitioning dogs for a successful integration back home is especially important, so we offer checkout services including the entire family. If you prefer to have a more hands-on approach to the formation of your pup's temperament and training goals, then private lessons might be the perfect option of you. We offer private one-on-one lessons at your home or ours. Get the specifics you're looking for in a convenient and tailored package that meets your needs without the hassle. Group classes held throughout Glenwood Springs offer a safe, structured training environment that is designed for the financially conscious. Covered topics including Smart Start Puppy, all levels of Obedience, Competition Obedience, Come Even If You See A Cat, and specialty classes such as Agility, Treibball, Flyball, Tracking & Nose Work, Hunting Without Harm, Canicross/ Backpacking, Tricks, Rally, Downtown Adventure, Herding, Sports Conditioning, Therapy Dog Preparation, Skijoring and Off Leash Adventure. We also have extensive knowledge in addressing aggression, anxiety and other behavior issues successfully using gentle, non-provoking methods that are backed by science. Certifications and evaluations we can conduct include: Puppy Testing, Therapy Dog Inc., Canine Good Citizen, STAR Puppy, Canine Life & Social Skills (CLASS), Red Cross Pet First Aid & CPR.
