About MasterPeace Dog Training ...

MasterPeace Dog Training Center is a full-service dog training center.   Our classes include Puppy Kindergarten, Pet Obedience, Competitive Obedience, Rally Obedience, Pet Agility, Small Dog Agility, Puppy Agility, Competitive Agility, Nosework, Canine Freestyle, Breed Handling, and other specialty classes.  We are often adding new classes and events - be sure to check out the Events page! We teach using positive methods of training including clicker training and are committed to teaching you to train your dog in a way that is not only effective, but fun for you and your dog. 

Dog owners can begin training their dog in puppy kindergarten classes or beginning obedience classes.  A well-mannered dog is able to fully participate in their human's life; be safe in doing so; and is not likely to develop behavioral problems.   From Puppy Kindergarten or Beginning Pet Obedience, clients can move on to Graduate Puppy Classes or more advanced obedience or agility classes.


Our class schedule is updated often, so please feel free to have a look before you leave the site.  We will be glad to answer any questions you might have, so don't hesitate to ask us questions by phone or email.  

The classes listed on the schedule run for 6 or 7 weeks at a time, and then start again.  Once you know you want to sign up for a particular class, give the school a call.  We will take some basic information and put you on the list for that class.  A non-refundable deposit of $40 is required to hold your spot, and the balance will be due on the first day of class.  It is important to note that we limit class size so that we can give enough attention to each student; some classes fill up early.  There is no charge for coming in and watching classes currently going on, so if you are unsure of what you might want to do, perhaps you would like to watch a current session of the class you are considering.  

We also have "drop in classes", such as puppy kindergarten and pet obedience on Saturday mornings.  For those classes, it is simply "come that day for $12.00".  These classes vary in number of participants and levels of experience, but they are great for giving it a try or practicing between other classes. 

In addition, many of our clients compete in Obedience, Agility and Nosework events both locally and nationally.  We have several opportunities for the serious competitor.  Our competitive classes are taught by experienced and titled instructors with years of experience and expertise to share.

Other Things

Ring rental is available by appointment.  Perhaps on one of those chilly or rainy days you could come in and for $15.00/hour share some private time with your dog.  Train some; play some; enjoy the indoors. Available for obedience and agility rental. (Note: Agility ring is set up for you on Mondays, Tuesdays, and other select days. Please call the center for schedule details.)

We do private lessons!  Yes, it is also possible to take a private lesson at the school or in your home, or partake in one of the many workshops, seminars, training parties, and special events offered at MasterPeace Dog Training.  Details are found on the Events Page of this website.

Please feel free to call, stop by, or email us.  We would love to meet you and, of course, your dog!

Dog Grooming is available at MasterPeace!  Zoe Jackson is available to groom your dog at MasterPeace!  Zoe offers full service grooming, using positive reinforcement and one-on-one bonding time with a cage-free environment.  You can choose to wait in the training area, do lunch and return, or even stay with your pet during the appointment.  Please call 508-553-9300 to leave a message to schedule an appointment.


From time to time, we will be adding links to other sites which our students may find helpful in caring for or training their dogs.
