classes held every Tuesday and by request.

All levels of training from basic obedience to task training for service dogs.

AVO holds classes for our non - Veteran's  who want their pet to be well trained and obedient.  Classes run every Tuesday Evening from 4 - 5 pm, 5 - 6 pm and 6 - 7 pm for access training service dogs.  Check the calendar for availability and book today.  

We have all seen the movies where the man's best friend is always at his side and seems to know where to go with  just  a glance.  Or that handler and dog at the local coffee shop, quietly enjoying an afternoon in the sun.  Now you can achieve this with a bit of training and persistence.  *

Just like our warriors with the right tools anything is possible.

Please book future appointments on the appointments section or you can book through Eventbrite, the link is below.

* All training and outcomes are results of handler, training, practice and persistence. 

  -All Veterans and First Responders please look at dates and times on the Events calendar and contact us for location.

Words from us

There is no limit to what you can do here.


At AVO we believe that no matter what your disability, no one should be limited on what they can do.  

Take the time to show the love


Training takes time and effort.  We all need a little extra encouragement.

Stay the course


Training is continuous, even after you and your dog are trained as a team you both should continue to work at improving.
