to stop barking. Enjoy some peace and quiet in your home
WALK NICELY ON A LEASH
Imagine enjoying a relaxing walk with your dog,
instead of being dragged down the street.

Muddy paw prints on your nice clothes
are a thing of the past.
NO MORE DESTRUCTIVE BEHAVIOR

your dog will chew up next.

Helping You Help Your Dog
Whether you just got a puppy and want to get him started off on the right paw, or you want to
teach your old dog some new tricks, we can help.
We will start with a 30 minute in-home evaluation to help you
decide between one of our following programs.
Does your dog need to take a chill pill? Or is your dog scared of every little Noise? This program is great to help the energetic dog learn where to focus their energy, as well as help the nervous dog gain more confidence. We will work around the house to help your dog listen better at home.
How would you like to have a dog who waits instead of dashing out the door, stays on their place instead of begging for food, and comes when you call instead of chasing that squirrel? With a combination of In-Home and Out-and-About training sessions, get your dog to listen to you no matter what is going on around you.
Set For Life
Have a quiet, calm house without a crazy dog bouncing off the walls, and people. Enjoy your walks, and sit at a restaurant downtown, without your dog embarrassing you by barking and lunging, or dragging you down the street. This premier program has all the support that you and your dog need. You have me as your trainer for the lifetime of your dog.
