Hal Wheeler's - "School For Dogs"

Free Consultation With No Obligation!  Training offers more than the ability to have your dog sit on command or correct bad behaviors. It establishes a bond between you and your dog and develops the respect that is needed for a healthy relationship. It also increases your dog's confidence and understanding of what is expected of him. We know your relationship with your dog is important to you. It's our goal to see that you have a long and happy life together. Hal Wheeler's - "School For Dogs" offers the pet owner various training programs depending on the needs of you and your dog. Our extensive experience in evaluating your dog’s character allows us to apply the proper training methods in order to achieve success.  At Hal Wheeler's - "School For Dogs" we offer the following training curriculum and protocols for your selection:
