We use only humane, science-based force-free techniques based in animal learning theory to prevent problem behaviors and help you overcome them too!

How We Can Help: *

  • Teaching basic manners such as walking with a loose leash, calmly greeting visitors, come when called, settle on a mat, crate-training, etc.
  • Teaching new skills such as how to use a ramp, wait to be lifted in/out of car, fitness behaviors to keep mind and body active (particularly for senior dogs), etc.
  • Teaching impulse control such as how to wait at the door, wait to get in/out of the car, leave dangerous items on the ground alone, etc.
  • Modifying unwanted behavior such as chewing shoes or furniture, barking, digging, house soiling, stealing food from the table/counter, begging at dinner table, etc.
  • Reducing anxiety so your dog is more comfortable being left home alone

The speed and efficiency of your dog’s learning is primarily based on their temperament, learning ability, and your commitment to the training plan. We do not guarantee how long training will take, nor how long it will last. It is essential for you to practice regularly and remain consistent in order for your dog to achieve the desired result.

* We do not work with aggression or severe reactivity cases, but we will be happy to refer you to other certified, force-free trainers who specialize in aggression and reactivity.
