Behavioral training

Educating owners and empowering dogs to be their very best!

Our behavioral training programs are individually crafted around your goals and your dog's personality. 

Force is not necessary when teaching dogs to behave politely or listen to you. We show you how to replace unwanted, annoying and even dangerous behavior by using the power of positive conditioning to build better behavior in its place.

  In our lessons, we teach you to take control of your dog’s energy by introducing your dog to positive and force-free techniques.

 

Our approach uses:

+ Focus & Energy Control Exercises +

+ Obedience & Redirection +

+ Physical Games and Mental Puzzles +

+ Safe Play Habits +

+ Leash Walking Routines & more! +

 

Dogs need our guidance and direction in order to learn how to behave. We aim to help you effectively

 communicate with your dog. Instead of feeling overwhelmed by challenges, we teach you to work together, with your dog, to make lasting progress.

 If your dog’s behavior is:

- Making it difficult to keep them in your home - 

- Causing you to avoid taking your dog places -

- Keeping you from introducing them to people -

- Making daily life feel more stressful than rewarding -
