About Us
Our Dogs
Obedience Training
We offer obedience training for all breeds of dogs at all levels and needs. Our training methods focus on teaching you how to help your dog understand what your expectations are without added confusion or frustration.  Some of the things we teach include tone of voice, posture, timing of praise and corrections, how to properly give a correction, repetition, and how to keep things fun for you and your dog.

Our philosophy is one that focuses on keeping the relationship between you and your dog a positive one in order to build trust and respect.  Without a solid foundation, you will accomplish nothing with your dog.

Some of our classes include:

  • Puppy Manners - This is a great start for young pups. You will be taught the proper way to housebreak your pet, how to correct chewing problems, adjusting puppy behavior, and approaching and handling your puppy. Your puppy will learn how to be confident and enjoy working with you.
  • Basic Obedience - One-on-one training with you and your dog allows for a personalized training schedule. The primary goals are to learn how to walk comfortably on a leash, sit, stay, down, come and basic manners.  You will learn how to use your voice, posture, timing of praise and corrections and how to effectively give a correction.  We work with you and your dog individually so that you know how to troubleshoot problems as they come along every day. Your dog will learn to enjoy working with you because our methods focus on praise that comes directly from you and not food or treats. This type of training builds reliable trust and respect and will keep you and your dog happy partners for years.
  • Advanced Obedience - Small sized classes offer individualized attention for dogs and handlers. The course focuses on socialization, advanced sit, stay and heeling with off-leash aspects.
  • Specialized training - AKC obedience competitions, tracking/search techniques, agility, and even home invasion. Please contact us to discuss your specific needs and we can determine a training program that is designed to fit your needs.

  Contact us via e-mail or phone if you are interested in obedience training or have questions regarding training your dog.

AKC Canine Good Citizen Certification
  • The CGC was started in 1989 and was designed to reward dogs that have good manners not only at home, but also in public.  The certification stresses responsible pet ownership and good dog manners.  It is a 10-step test that must be assessed by an AKC certified evaluator.  If passed, you and your dog will receive a certificate of completion from the American Kennel Club.
  • The CGC certification is often the first step many dog owners take in training their dog.  It is especially important for dogs and owners that are anticipating going into therapy or service training.

Therapy Dog and Assistance Dog Training                                                                         Back to Top  
  • We are proud to say that we trained the first assistance dog for the Southern Tier Epilepsy Society of Southern New York. View the billboard of Hope and Sean for the Epilepsy Awareness Campaign. Hope is an assistance dog for a young boy that has epilepsy as well as autism. She is still in the earlier stages of her training, but has been a huge help to her family.  She offers comfort and reassurance for Sean during and after his seizures as well as a constant companion.
  • We are currently working on obtaining an affiliation with Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dog Organization.  In the near future, we are planning on becoming evaluators for the program to evaluate new dogs for the program.
  • Dogs can be trained for therapy work in various situations from hospitals, nursing homes, senior care facilities, assisted care facilities for mentally and physically challenged individuals, children's program such as Paws for Reading, and much more
  • Contact us via e-mail or phone if you are interested in obtaining or training one of your existing dogs for therapy or assistance work.

Premium Quality Dog Food Sales - Perfect for Working Dogs, Hyperactive Dogs or Dogs with Skin Problems
  • Martinís only uses high quality ingredients and contains a 3:1  ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 essential fatty acids, which are critical in supporting healthy skin and coat.

  • Martin's K-9 Formula dog food has none of the following products added: Ethoxiquin, byproducts, BHA, BHT, beet pulp, corn bran, animal digest, or Sodium Bentonite (which is brick dust).

  • Martinís Formula K9 Dog Food is available in the regular formulation or light for less active or senior dogs.  We also offer nutritional supplements for more senior dogs, as well as performance or working dogs, which includes glucosamine and MSM.

  • If you have a dog that is hyperactive or has skin/coat allergies, try Martinís today!  Martinís does not contain many of the artificial fillers or sugar that can be the source of many of your problems.

  • Brian and Jennifer have an extensive background in Animal Nutrition from Cornell University.  In addition, Brian conducted nutrition research on working sled dogs while at Cornell helping to develop an ideal diet for highly active dogs. 

  • All of our dogs are fed Martin's.  They all maintain the perfect weight while still showing no signs of dry, flaky skin or a dull coat.  Our black lab has an amazingly shiny coat that is as soft as a puppy's fur.

  • The price of one 55 lb. bag of Martin's is cheaper per pound than most higher quality dog foods found in the stores.  When you feed a high quality food, your dog can use more of the nutrients in the food, allowing you to feed (and waste) less food.

  • E-mail or call us today for more information or a sample. 

  • Visit Martin's K9 Formula  Website for more information about the food and the company.

Martin's is made with the highest quality ingredients.  We have been assured that the ingredients do not contain the products that were recently involved with the pet food industry scare that caused many deaths in pets.  Please contact us if you have any other concerns.  We can assure you that we feed this food to our own dogs and would not continue if we were not comfortable with its quality or safety.
