About Maplecreek

Obedience classes are following THE THIRD WAY training methods by Chris Bach.  These methods teach the handler to communicate with their dogs in a positive and proactive manner.

Our 3600 sq. ft. rubber matted training facility offers multiple classes such as:  puppy, basic dog manners, agility, rally obedience, formal AKC obedience and breed competition.

Along with classes, Maplecreek offers the AKC S.T.A.R. puppy program, Canine Good Citizen classes and testing, and therapy dog certification through the Alliance of Therapy Dogs.

Maplecreek Dog Training Center is a heated facility that offers regulation agility and rally/obedience equipment making this center very dog friendly. Using THE THIRD WAY methods, Maplecreek strives to increase the success of dog training while making training fun and rewarding for both owner and dog!
