Deer Creek Doggie offers both comprehensive group obedience classes, one-on-one private training, dog sports, and informative seminars to fit the needs of your family.  We believe that to be a successful team, dog and human need to learn to communicate in the same language, so our trainer emphasizes teaching you to "speak dog" through body language and vocal cues.  We use positive and scientific training methods, including the use of treats, toys and clickers.


Canine Requirements:

  • All dogs coming for training are required to be up-to-date on vaccinations, including rabies and bordatella in the previous 12 months, before coming to Deer Creek Doggie.
  • All dogs must be comfortable in a group setting including both dogs and humans.  If your dog can’t handle such settings, you are still a candidate for Private Training sessions.
  • Applications for training can be picked up at the Camp Office during regular business hours


If you are interested in exploring our training options further, please feel free to contact us at (573) 803-1311, email us at info@deercreekdoggie.com, or message us on our Facebook page. 


Our trainer is happy to speak with you about your needs and expectations.  We want training to be a positive experience for everyone involved!
