Puppy Training

We'll answer all of your puppy questions and share the techniques and tricks that really work to make puppies behave. Our puppy classes will give your puppy the behavioral training, obedience skills and socialization she needs to become a great pet.

Group Obedience Training

Our small, workshop-style classes are the fastest and easiest way for most dog owners to achieve their obedience goals. You'll love the changes you'll see in your dog as he learns how much fun good behavior can be. All classes are led by Kim Roche herself, never an intern or assistant. Classes fill quickly, so reserve your spot today!

Thursday classes meet inside at 537 Woodward St..

Saturday classes meet outdoors near South Congress Ave and Oltorf St.

Behavior Modification

If you and your dog are struggling with leash reactivity, separation anxiety, hyperactivity or other issues, we can help. We have two decades of experience solving tough behavior problems and are the only Certified Separation Anxiety Specialists in Austin, TX. .

Board and Train

Kim accepts a limited number of dogs per year into her board and train program. All dogs stay with Kim for four weeks and are fully integrated into her household.
