Our methods are fast, effective, and easy to learn. Because our techniques utilize your dog’s natural drives and instincts, your dog will learn commands faster and easier than with other less behavior-oriented methods. Our approach also helps dogs respond, respect, and bond to you more readily. We offer private one-on-one lessons to teach you how to train your dog.
Basic Obedience & Manners:
-Loose Leash Walk
-Leave It/Take It
All training programs are based on the needs of the dog/owner.
-Aggression (Leash, Dog-to-Dog, Human)
Service Dog Training & Evaluation
-Train your own companion dog to assist in your every day needs in order to help be more independent.
-Must have a disability as outlined by the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act.)
-An evaluation of your dogs' temperament and working suitability is required prior to beginning training.
-We will evaluate your personal dog for potential service dog capabilities.
-We will locate a dog for you that shows potential to be a Service Dog based on your needs through one of our preferred shelters or rescue groups. We can work with a breeder, if that is your decision, but we feel there are plenty of suitable dogs in shelters that can be trained to be a working service dog.
AKC Canine Good Citizen Training & Evaluation
-This is free for clients who complete our private training programs.
-Evaluation only is available! If your dog is ready for the test, there's no need to do a class.
How To Greet Dogs & Bite Prevention
-A presentation for young children on how to greet strange dogs.
-Children learn how to prevent and avoid dog bites.
-Learn the difference between a dog that is ok to greet and not ok to greet, based on body language cues. A wagging tail does NOT always mean the dog is nice and happy!

-Talk can be given with or without a live dog. Dogs used are Canine Good Citizen & Therapy Dog certified. Otherwise, a stuffed dog is used for the presentation.
Canine Life & Social Skills (C.L.A.S.S.)
-C.L.A.S.S., or Canine Life And Social Skills, is an educational program to promote training focused on the use of positive reinforcement and to strengthen relationships between humans and their canine companions.
-C.L.A.S.S. is a three-level evaluation for students to demonstrate the real-life skills of their dogs, as well as a knowledge assessment of the students’ understanding of basic dog handling and care.
-Developed by the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) based on input from both dog owners and non-dog owners, shelter workers, and professional dog trainers, C.L.A.S.S. benefits pet owners, dogs, and everyone in the community!
