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!

Most classes meet in our comfortable inside training room located inside of Southpaws Playschool (2235 S. Lamar Blvd.).

Private Training

Do you prefer to work at your own pace, own multiple dogs or just can't fit a group class into your schedule? Kim offers private lessons in your home, at Southpaws Playschool or at your favorite park.

Theatre, Film and Print Photography

Kim especially enjoys casting, training and handling dogs for live theatre productions, commercials, films and print photography. Her experience as head trainer includes television ads, feature films, musical theatre and portrait shoots.
