Strengthening the bond between canines and humans is our goal, creating relationships of mutual respect and love. Our certified master dog trainers use a combination of techniques taking into consideration the dog’s breed, personality, as well as that of the owner-family. Long Island Canine Class is a great place for people interested in participating in social events, dog walks, and canine assisted therapy.

From day one, the participants are headed in the right direction, becoming well-mannered members of the community.
