At Canine Craze we focus on helping people understand the canine mind and how dogs learn. Our Train & Play program is designed to give your dog not only proper socialization with other dogs but also to teach them good manners while in our care. Our classes are designed with a level system. Our Agility, Obedience, and Puppy program have beginning levels through advanced levels including competition. We host several educational seminars a year. We bring in well recognized speakers to help educate people in our area and the midwest about dog training and behavior. Workshops are taught by trainers from Canine Craze. We cover a variety of subjects such as obedience, dog park etiquette, agility, and freestyle. In the spring we hold our annual Canine Olympics. People and their dogs compete for a years worth of free agility classes. In the fall we hold our annual Dog Job Fair that educates pet owners about different recreational sports and activities that are available to do with their pets.
