Begin your dog’s transformation today! Schedule a free 20 minute program assessment by clicking on the “Book Online” icon (not needed for enrolling in Puppy group classes). It’s a great way to meet each other and learn about your dog. We will:

  • Ask you questions about your dog’s history
  • Inquire as to your training goals
  • Explain our training philosophy and services
  • Provide a professional recommendation as to which program would be the best fit for you and your dog

We work with all breeds and the training programs are individually tailored. However, most owners desire the following:

  • How to reduce and manage aggressive / fearful tendencies
  • How to teach self imposed calm behavior
  • To walk nicely on a loose leash
  • To reliably come when called
  • Not to jump on guests
  • To wait at door ways rather than barging out past you
  • To go to a predetermined place and stay there until released

To start your dog’s education, please provide us with a copy of your dog’s vaccination verification (DHPP, Bordetella and Rabies). A negative fecal test result and Bordetella must have been done within the last six months. Puppies and Dogs cannot do Private Lessons without verification.
