Our partnership with Shelley Sloane, CPDT-KA, APDT Professional Member has been a wonderful collaboration.  She has been dog training for 30+ years; she offers a wide range of dog training classes at Dogtopia from the AKC STAR puppy program, AKC Canine Good Citizen to other behavior dog training sessions.  Only  positive reinforcement training methods are used and her dog training services range from group classes, individual, private in-home and even phone consultations.  Having a predictable, well-mannered and loving dog that you feel comfortable in any social setting whether it’s kids, other dogs or people is your goal.

Let Dogtopia San Marcos help you achieve your puppy or dog’s goals. Contact us now for additional information on our puppy or dog training classes or personalized behavior training for you and your dog.

Shelly is an expert with rescues and professionally trains therapy dogs.

AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Classes:  Saturdays 1:00 – 2:00

Our classes are smaller so you have more one on one training time.  Classes are at least an hour plus additional time for Q&A and homework assignments.

We have a variety of group classes from puppy to adult classes, obedience, scent, agility or one on one specific training with Shelley onsite or at your home.  She also trains therapy dogs.
