There is more to your relationship with your dog than "obedience". We go beyond dog training to help you communicate better with your dog, have a deeper connection, and love them even more!

You love your dog.

Woof U helps you love them even more 

Have you ever felt like something was missing? Like there must be more to being a Dog Owner/Guardian than just training them to Sit and Down when you say so? 


We hear you! We know that you didn't get a dog to have more stress. You don't want to yell at them. You don't want tension. You don't want chaos. You want a mutually enjoyable relationship with your dog!

That is why Woof University is NOT "Dog Training", It is Education for BOTH ends of the Leash. We help you understand and communicate with your dog better so that BOTH of you are more fulfilled in your relationship. 



The Canine Good Citizen Preperation Course is the next step after your dog has learned some Basic Skills. The course prepares your dog to pass the AKC Canine Good Citizen Test. The test is included at the end of the course. If your dog passes, they earn the AKC Title of Canine Good Citizen.

Prepare your dog to handle the real world in a fun, supportive group of fellow dog lovers. Learn how to keep your dog's focus around distractions, how to prevent behavior problems, and how to handle common unwanted behaviors like jumping up and play biting. Plus, detailed written training guides, email support, and educational articles for raising a well-adjusted dog.



An exciting new course is coming Spring 2022 for dogs who pull hard on their leash and don't come when called. This course will only be offered at the Sutton's Southern Pet Retreat location. It will focus solely on improving leash sklils and coming when called, even when there are distractions. Check back next year for more information!

You got a dog to have an enjoyable companion, not to have more stress! If your dog's behavior has you stressed out, we can help. We go beyond dog training to get to the root of the issue instead of only suppressing the behavior. so you don't end up playing whack-a-mole when new undesirable behaviors take the old one's place. Behavior has a purpose. It meets a need. If we ignore the need met by the behavior, we don't really resolve the issue and could create worse problems!

Everything that is covered in the group course in an individual setting. The Group Course is best for most dogs because of the real world experience they gain, but it's not right for every dog or family. Private Training is better for dogs who are aggressive to other dogs or people, exceptionally fearful or anxious, or otherwise unable to cope with a group setting. It is also best for guardians who are uncomfortable with a group course, or it simply doesn't fit with your schedule.
