Welcome to Maximum Canine at The Hydrant

Training Enhances Your Dog’s Skills & Strengthens Your Bond

Your dog’s favorite place to stay and play is also where they can learn and obey with expert training. You can schedule a session à la carte, purchase training packages, or add it to your dog’s boarding or day care schedule to enhance their visit.
