Mission Statement

Contented Canines, started in 1996, is a dog school dedicated to educate our community about the importance of professional positive appropriate dog training. Contented Canines provides the highest professional standard of instruction to educate dog owners about the importance of commitment and responsibility when owning and training a dog. Our program focuses on the importance of how to create healthy (spayed/neutered), happy (spend quality time), and well trained (educate with positive reinforcement) dogs.


  • Educate our community about the innocence of dogs. Dogs are innocent creatures deserving to be educated to live appropriately in our houses and communities. A dog is what the owner makes or doesn’t make it.
  • Educate dog owners so they have the knowledge necessary to correctly train their dog(s) to be good companion dogs.
  • Encourage our students to tell others about the importance of dog training.
  • Help control the pet overpopulation program by educating all in our community about the importance of spaying and neutering. To discourage pet dog breeding and give information on what it takes to be a responsible breeder.
