Cape-Able Canines uses positive reinforcement, lure based training and stresses early socialization and good dog manners. Our trainers are certified AKC Canine Good Citizen and STAR puppy evaluators and members of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers. We offer all levels of training from puppy to advanced obedience, speciality classes such as intro to agility and rally, specialty workshops, problem behavior consultations, and fun special events, all intended to improve dog/owner communication.


Cape-Able Canines will not train your dog for you; we will train YOU to train your dog. We use gentle lure and positive reinforcement methods combined with effective correction; we place a special emphasis on socialization. Learning is a lifelong process - for people and dogs.

Luxury Boarding

Unlike other boarding facilities, our guest dogs sleep in an apartment setting with one of our staff, in a bed, dog bed, crate or on our couch. Because guest dogs are in an apartment setting, they are kept comfortable with temperature controls, including air conditioning or a fireplace, depending on the weather. Guest dogs truly become “one of our family” watching tv, listening to music or enjoying family barbeques!
