Training your canine companion can be rewarding! At Blue Sky, we offer several training options for your family dog, group classes in town, private lessons in the country and our new "live and learn" board and train facility. Balanced positive reinforcement techniques are used, encompassing the need of the "whole dog" with the understanding that people have busy schedules and the dog's training has to fit into the way the family lives its life.

All beginning group obedience classes are held at Hollywood Feed and include five weeks of instruction for the cost of $80. The classes are small, focusing on individual attention, and require pre-registration by e-mail or phone. Private lessons are conducted in the training center at Blue Sky in west Little Rock for $40 per hour and the "Live and Learn" board and train program is $30 per night, with no minimum stay required. All dogs over the age of nine months must be spayed or neutered to participate in the "Live and Learn" board/train program.

Colleen Backus has been training dogs in the Little Rock area for many years. As the longtime manager of Premium Pet Products (now Hollywood Feed), she assisted many animal lovers in finding natural, healthy solutions to their pets' nutritional needs. At home, the Blue Sky pack consists of several Border Collies and Australian Shepherds. Her dogs have appeared in multiple area productions and events, and Colleen has made many local television appearances promoting responsible pet ownership through training. Whether helping a puppy adjust to life in a new home or solving complex behavioral problems, Colleen is passionate about creating stronger bonds between people and their four-legged family members.
