Has Your Dog Become Unruly?

Foundational skills are the beginning of helping to correct any behavior problem. Learning the techniques of communicating with your dog without the use of force, intimidation, and devices that suppress behavior will give both you and your dog tools that will last a lifetime. Whether your goal is taking your dog to your kids soccer games or becoming the next agility star, skills like loose leash walking, settling in any environment and building a solid recall will help you to get there.

Training Takes Dedication and Time

The payoff is the special bond that will form between you and your dog as each of you learn and work together. Good training is a partnership between you and your dog and should be an enjoyable, enriching and rewarding experience for both of you. Let us help your dog become the companion you have been longing for!
