Our program tailors the training to your specific needs. We work with you, your family, and your dog to educate you on the science behind canine behavior, and what truly motivates your dog. We demonstrate the techniques that we have mastered and ensure that you also understand how to best communicate with your dog. In addition, we provide informational training handouts designed to support your learning. We use methods that have been scientifically proven to work, and we can guide you and your furry companion through even the most difficult issues.

Private Basic Obedience Dog Training


The private in-home training sessions are a great option for many. These sessions take place in the comfort and convenience of your home, so the entire family can be involved. In home training is available in packages of three, six, nine, or twelve sessions. Each session is tailored to your specific needs, and is designed conveniently around your schedule. We can work at beginner, intermediate or advanced levels. Each session lasts about one hour and includes hands-on training as well as exercises to address the specific obedience issues that you are experiencing with your dog.

Problem Behavior Assistance

Achieve Peaceful Living with Your Dog Today

If your dog has some behaviors that you or others find undesirable, we are here to help. Very often, a dog has behaved in a certain way for an extended period of time, making it extremely difficult to interrupt the cycle. We help you understand the science of canine behavior, using techniques that are easy, and have practical applications. We will help you learn how to condition and counter-condition to the behaviors that you want to see, and help reduce the behaviors you don't want to see. With our help you will become proficient at discouraging behaviors that are problematic and reinforcing the behaviors you want to see repeated.
