Is your pet a well behaved member of your family?  Or can they use some fine tuning? 

Our motto "Training both ends of the leash" explains exactly what we do.  We teach you how to train your dog, thereby increasing the relationship between you and your dog.

All dogs learn differently, and respond to different methods.  The Laundered Mutt & Training Center focuses primarily on positive training methods. We feel that this is the best way to strengthen the bond between you and your dog.  Your dog learns that training can be fun and rewarding.
