Positively Best Friends! Dog Training & Canine Activity Center supports the many diverse training opportunities to suit all levels of skill and interest:

The Boothbay Road (Rte. 27) in Edgecomb, Maine

Private and Semi–Private Sessions can be scheduled to meet your individual needs.

The training facility is open only during regularly scheduled classes, private lessons, and special events. Please call 207.882.PAWS and leave us a message. We will return your call as soon as possible.
Dog Training Classes run for 6 weeks - Cost $150.00 - The first night is orientation (without dogs) unless otherwise noted. Please be sure to confirm with Marcia that there is room in the class for which you are registering. Sorry. No refunds. Due to the fact that we limit our class numbers, it is too late after registration has ended to find someone to fill an unexpected vacancy.

We are committed to your success! It is important to learn in an environment which provides ample one-on-one coaching, even in a group class. That is why we keep an appropriate student/teacher ratio. If we have an exceptionally high demand for a specific class, we will create a 2nd class to keep our numbers at a reasonable level. Due to the COVID-19 situation, we are limiting our indoor class enrollment to a maximum of 5 dogs.
Gift certificates are available for that "special dog-loving someone". Marcia Welch 207.882.PAWS
