D4L focuses on a whole dog training approach based on the health, physical traits, temperament, breed qualities, and mental ability of each individual dog.

If you need help with instilling good manners and avoiding behaviors such as housebreaking, leash pulling, coming when called, door dashing, nipping, mouthing, or jumping on people, remember that D4L has got you covered.

OUR services

Training your puppy (and family) at the onset and early age will affect your puppy’s life experiences and future. The ideal time to begin puppy training is at 8 to 10 weeks through positive and gentle reinforcement.


Dogs are lifelong learners and you can leverage these characteristics to train any dog, no matter their age or training background.  Our obedience programs both strengthen your dog’s foundation and teach them manners that help resolve problematic behaviors.

By training in CGC, you and your dog will develop a strong bond with each other and become a more connected team. Not only will you and your dog learn the basics of dog training and master skills, but your dog will become a welcomed member of the community.

Emotional Support and Comfort Dogs

The sole function of emotional support dogs is to provide comfort and companionship, with therapeutic benefits that promote the well-being of the owner. However, these dogs are not considered service dogs nor do they require any specific training, but we do recommend obedience training so that they are well-behaved in the community and at home.

Therapy Facility Dog

A facility dog “works” full-time at the facility under the care and supervision of a staff member to achieve specific treatment or program goals through animal-assisted therapy. These dogs need to have a high level of training to ensure their skills, manners, and behaviors are maintained.

Therapy dogs go with their owners to volunteer in settings such as schools, hospitals, and nursing homes.
