Raffles, fun giveaways, Blue Fawn swag and snacks for both people and the pups! Vendors and Rescues are welcome, contact Shannan.

Blue Fawn Maine offers group, private and semi-private training options for dogs and puppies. We are also happy to accommodate circumstances where at home training may be required.

We specialize in behavior modification based on science and compassion (positive reinforcement) and provide plenty of ongoing support. We provide numerous enjoyable opportunities to practice your newly developed skills and transfer that knowledge to real-world settings. Blue Fawn regularly invites dog professionals to present workshops on a wide range of topics, from alternative and holistic therapies to a variety of fitness games and activities.

Our spacious 2,400 square foot training area offers ample natural light and fully rubberized flooring, providing a comfortable and safe environment for both you and your dog. Located on Route 202 in Waterboro, our studio is easy to find and with plenty of on-site parking available.

Regardless of your experience level, the behavioral challenges you may be here to address or your prior training, we welcome you. Our values are rooted in education, not judgment. Come learn to develop your dog's skills through the use of reward-based training, clear, fair, consistent boundaries, benevolent leadership, improved communication and a happy spirit.
