Whether you are new to dog ownership or an experienced dog trainer, Brylin Obedience Specialty School (BOSS) offers small group classes for puppies and dogs of all ages. Class size is limited so you and your dog receive individual attention.
Puppy and Family classes are structured for new pet owners, while Agility, Nose Works and Obedience classes are geared for those who want to compete or just enjoy activities with their dog. Types of Classes >

Are you a local trainer?
All training is conducted indoors in a heated and fan-cooled building. The agility and obedience areas have foam cushioned flooring for your dog's safety and comfort. The agility equipment meets UKI and USDAA standards. Inside there is generous space for crating and separate men's and women's restrooms.
Outside, we have over two acres of level parking. There is a covered ramp to access the center which makes loading and unloading convenient even in inclement weather.
The entire facility or individual training areas may be rented by the day or the hour. Facility >>
Stokes Partnership for Children
Brylin Obedience Specialty School will partner with Stokes Partnership for Children. Pam Davis and Shannon Cox will lead the program where children read to Therapy dogs in our libraries and schools. Reading to dogs gives the children confidence to read out loud and improves their verbal skills. Stokes Partnership for Children >>
