If you are committed to working with your dog, we'd love to be your trainer.
No need to pay thousands of dollars to understand your dog. This is not a one size fits all franchise.
Our methodology is to give you a basic understanding of dog behavior and the understanding that changing what the human does can effectively change the outcome in the dogs behavior. We use only modern up to date science based positive reinforcement training or maintenance, which means it will not damage your relationship with your dog by using punitive methods like e-collars or prong collars. You will learn techniques and skills to deal with normal dog behavior and provide a foundation for future dog / human activities. A trained dog is welcome at dog friendly public places and is less likely to end up in a shelter. A well behaved dog lifts many restrictions and allows the dog to live inside with it's human family. Training also provides environmental and behavioral stimuli that is necessary for their psychological wellbeing. Early puppy training is important to develop social skills with other dogs and polite manners when meeting humans.
(Not accepting aggressive dogs at this time).
Are you ready for serious training results without using dominant, aversive unkind methods? There is no need to use e-collars.
