Michael Ellis School for Dog Trainers

The Michael Ellis School Facility

In November of 2014, we moved our school from a small industrial facility in Fairfield, California to our current campus in Santa Rosa, California. Our campus spans 3 acres, only minutes from downtown Santa Rosa and roughly an hour from San Francisco, in the heart of Sonoma County Wine Country.
We have multiple outdoor fields dedicated to training, as well as both indoor and outdoor space for students to use during lunch or after classes. Our school has a 2500 sq ft training room, dock diving pool, nosework building, a large dining room, full size kitchen, laundry room and much more.
Training Room:
Our 2500 sq ft training room is where a majority of our classes meet. This set up allows us to work on obedience, agility, and bite work. It also serves as the classroom for Michael's daily lectures.
We have a regulation dock diving pool that measures 48 feet long. It is designed to accommodate jumpers and swimmers of all abilities. The pool is 21 feet wide with a permanent dock which is 40 feet long and 8 feet wide. Information on pool rental and workshops coming soon!
School Store:
Our school store provides the students the ability to purchase most of the equipment that Michael and his staff use regularly in their training. There is also Michael Ellis School apparel available to purchase including t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats and much more.
Kitchen & More:
We have a full size kitchen on campus which gives students the ability to store food and prepare their own meals during their stay. We also have a laundry room on campus, which includes a commercial washer and dryer, a crate room for the dogs, a cafeteria, and a small student lounge with a growing library of dog books.
