Fear Free & Least Intrusive Minimally Aversive Training (LIMA) dog training in downtown Bloomington, Indiana. 
Scout's Honor University is divided into four levels. Your pup will be placed into their starting level after a Training Consultation with Scout's Honor independently certified professional dog trainers. Your dog will progress at their own pace (and yours) through Scout’s Honor University as they accomplish and master specific skills in each level.

Enrollment in Scout’s Honor University does not require a commitment to complete each level. Owners and dogs may start and stop as they please to accomplish their training goals.
