About Us


The Dogma difference.

We’re teaching dogs and owners all kinds of new tricks. What a treat.

Like a dog with a bone, we’re committed to giving you and your dog the tools you need to make your life together the best it can be. 

Our training programs and day school curriculums were developed by one of the first elite CBCC-KA accredited trainers in the country. Even worldwide, there are few trainers of her calibre. At Dogma, you and your dog benefit from the best and most up-to-date techniques in dog training today. 

We focus on the positive and use only supportive training practices to achieve our quick and measurable results. We know what a dog needs to be successful, and adhere to strict dog to trainer ratios in both our daycare and training classes. Each and every dog in our care gets the time and attention they deserve – a lot. 

Dogma day school guides dogs through a variety of subjects each day. At the end of the day, you’re taking home a dog with better basic obedience skills, and better manners.

Join the team making big changes in animal care and training.

Dogma is seeking compassionate and driven individuals who are looking for more than just a job. Our growth is creating exceptional opportunities for professional development and personal enrichment throughout our organization. Successful candidates demonstrably align with our beliefs, vision, and philosophy, and are committed to delivering a superior customer experience. We’re looking for individuals passionate about animal welfare, with great people skills to boot. We want people driven to grow and advance in their careers with us.

If this sounds like you, we want to hear from you. Don’t miss your chance to help us keep setting the new standard for dog care and training.
