Dog Training by Jess serves SW MN and portions of SE SD.
We believe that the bond between a dog and their owner is a special one. This bond can be strengthened through training, especially training that is fun, rewarding and positive for everyone. A well trained dog makes for a happy dog and a happy owner. Whether you've just gotten a new puppy, or have an older dog who could use some manners or a 'doggie tune-up' we've got a program for you.
We offer group classes for puppies 7 weeks to 14 weeks old. Our puppy class offers rolling enrollment and runs all year.
