Each Dog We Train is an Individual Just like You. 

They Have Tastes, Desires and Personalities All Their Own. 

We Tailor Make Our Behavior Change Programs and Manners Programs to Be Authentic to Who They are and Who You Are.

 Our signature in-home dog training programs are proven science based behavior change methods that promote physical activity, mental stimulation and most importantly, change in the desired behavior you’re hiring us for!

A dog’s greatest gift is reading our hearts and minds. Our methods will teach you how to become a team, how your dog thinks, and how they interpret your behaviors. When we train together we’ll create that unbreakable bond and relationship, which in turn, will transform your dog into the one you’ve always dreamed of!



Manners And Obedience Are Not Synonymous In Dog Training

So I often get questions along the same vein. People can’t figure out why there dog is good at one thing, and yet not good at another. “He is a great dog in the house, but he pulls on leash.” He heels on leash beautifully but he keeps stealing food off of the counter. The irony is that manners and obedience are not synonymous to dogs. For people the words when used to describe dogs, they sound very much alike or almost the same but it is not like that for dogs. We have to teach you to learn to speak their language and what is the real meaning of woofs, barks, growls, and how to decode your furry friends body language.
