Choice Obedience Training

Form an unbreakable bond with your best friend through the power of obedience training.

Delve into understanding your dog's mind using balanced-positive based methods with

our trainer, Amber Sipes. She had been employed with the former Trillium Pet Care since

2006, acquiring 14+ years of experience in pet grooming and care. She has over 10 years of

experience as a canine obedience instructor, therapy dog tester, and is a certified Canine

Good Citizen (CGC) evaluator with the AKC. Striving to be involved in the dog world as

much as possible, Amber has titled and trained dogs in multiple venues such as 

conformation, obedience, barn hunt, coursing ability, search & rescue, Rally obedience, 

and therapy dog. She is currently training and working with her personal dogs, 

Roman, a Doberman Pinscher, Vintage, Cliché, and Extra, all Standard Poodles, in agility,

obedience, conformation, and scent work. She is also the proud owner of Vintage Country

Pet Resort.

We offer multiple forms of obedience, varying in age range and skill level including, but not limited to, canine socialization, puppy classes, basic obedience, advanced obedience, CGC testing, therapy work, and may do behavior training on a case-by-case basis.

All Canine Good Citizen (CGC), Therapy Dog, and Trick Dog testing may be scheduled without attending the designated class by appointment only with a fee of $25.
