Training is our specialty!

We specialize in addressing common behavior problems such as aggression, anxiety, possessiveness, excessive barking, pulling on a lead, and more. We provide training at all levels of experience, from basic to advanced obedience (off lead). We also offer protection training for those individuals who are interested. We understand that “Dog Training” involves more than just your dog. We train YOU to keep your dog under control and strive to give you the confidence you need. We assess your home and address any issues your dog is having that may be related to its environment. In home training is tailored to individual client needs and we can cover any topic that you may find concerning.

In home training and consultation

Addressing in the home problem behaviors and obedience instruction. We can help you correct common issues listed above and anything else you may be having problems with! We analyze dog psychology directly and fix the root of the problem rather than treating the symptoms. In home training is extremely beneficial for this reason, since many factors in a dogs home may trigger certain types of behavior.
