Dog training is a team activity. Each member of the team has responsibilities. You should be leading, and your dog should be following your lead. If you're unsure or confused, imagine how unsure ,confused and stressed out your dog is. So, to effectively lead or train your dog you need to learn to:
  • Dog training classes for the first time dog owner as well as those with previous experience
  •  Accurately time reinforcement.
  •  Earn your dog's respect and trust.
  • If you do not  already, respect your dog.
  • Use your leash properly.

  • Become the leader your dog needs you to be.

  • Develop an environment conducive to your dog's feelings of safety, trust and  good behavior.

   I often hear, "But I just want a family pet." I answer that with my approach of addressing the whole dog; that means all its behavior. Developing its environment, controlling some key patterns of behavior, establishing satiation levels and teaching and developing the owner's handling skills, as well as deepening their understanding  of their dog, provides just that. My in-depth approach is appropriate for dogs of all ages, breeds, temperament and character types, as it is tempered to meet each individual's needs and creates a well-rounded, welcomed and social family member.
We also specialize in the family dog.
