The Dream

You dreamed of getting a dog.  You wanted a companion that would complement your active and fulfilling life. 
• A sociable dog, calm enough to not call attention to its self.
• A dog so well-behaved its a pleasure at home
• A welcome visitor
• Fun to take on walks, hikes and all sorts of outings.

And we can help you have that

We accomplish this through games. Games work because dogs learn faster. Studies show, something that normally takes 400 repetitions to learn can be learned with a game in 20 repetitions.

Dogs are great game players.  Many of the games they play are what you consider to be “naughty behavior.”  

Regardless of the struggle,  if you change the rules to the game your dog’s behavior will change.

• For Misbehavior - you can play “Impulse Control Games”
• For a lack of response to cues - you can play “Focus Games”
• For Fear Issues -you can play “Brave Dog Games”
• For Excitability Issues - you can play “Self- Control Games”

The solution is fun, 3 minute training games that can be applied to real-life situations.

We offer dog training for dogs of all ages, adult dogs, puppies, adolescent dogs and seniors. We work with all sizes and breeds of dogs. We even work with dogs that don’t get along with people or dogs.

Our classes are located in Eugene Oregon but because many people throughout Lane County value our services, we have many clients who live east of Springfield Oregon, south of Cottage Grove, west of Veneta and North of Coburg.
