Dog Training

Is your dog’s behavior driving you mad? Let us help you teach your dog polite manners that’ll have your friends & family raving about “what a good boy” Fido is.

Day Training

We come to your home two or three times a week to work with your dog. Day Training is particularly great for puppies or new dogs. It can be overwhelming to care for a brand new member of the household, and I could help lay that important behavioral foundation.

Puppy Training

There’s nothing more enjoyable (or frustrating!) than having a new puppy. We’ll help you mold your mouthy puppy into a calm & sophisticated canine citizen.

Behavior Management

If your dog is doing something you don’t like, such as chewing, barking, digging, jumping to name a few, there is generally a reason.  Let us help you uncover why, teach your dog the path to good things and show you how to turn that bad behavior into a positive one.

Helping pet owners realize the joy of having a pet through fun & effective training that strengthens the human-pet bond.

Step 1: Schedule a [FREE] Initial Consultation

Initial Consultations set the stage for the rest of your training journey. See description below for exactly what Initial Consultations include. 

Step 2:
Get moving on your training plan

One of the things you will decide in your Initial Consultation is whether you’d like Virtual or In-Person sessions, Day Training, Private Training or a group class setting. You can mix and match or decide along the way.

Step 3:
Start seeing results

With your customized training plan and ongoing support from your trainer, you’ll start seeing results.

We’ll be here to support you at every step along the way.

 

INITIAL CONSULTATION

Initial Consultations are FREE and last for  about 15 - 20 minutes. These are a required first step to setting you and your dog up for success. Initial Consultations include:

  • Quick discussion of dog's history, environment, and the circumstantial problem around your dog's behavior. We don't call these dog problems as your dog's behavior could be a response to her/his immediate environment.

  • Discuss your goals and concerns to develop a plan.

  • A recommended plan of action, based on your goals and the dog's history. Here we will suggest different options we can offer for your success:

    • Day training​

    • A number of 1-2-1 sessions (virtual or in-person)

    • Group classes

The initial consultation could be either over the phone or virtual. We highly recommend a virtual consultation for behavior management cases for one main reason: it is more helpful to see how your dog behaves normally without the distraction of a new person in his or her environment. This is key for a the management and training plan we will customize for you and your dog. 

Since our initial consultations are FREE, you can also schedule one if you're interested in group classes. We love to hear and talk about dogs ALL the time. Otherwise, we'd love to read your email and reply with options.
