Dog Training that helps dogs & their people live together happily

Calmness, manners & obedience

We understand sometimes your dog is a gem, a little angel.  But we also understand how embarrassing it is when your dog:
• jumps on people
pulls on leash
• barks or behaves like a crazy little canine tornado

And we know how scary it can be when your dog:
• does not come when you call
• dashes out the door
• playfully bites or bites out of fear or anger

And we certainly understand your frustration when your dog:
chews stuff up
• and sometimes doesn’t respond to known commands or cues

Whether at home or in public, you deserve to have that confident, composed pleasure that comes from with a well trained dog.

To help you achieve your goals, we break skills into small, simplistic steps so you & your dog learn in a timely fashion.
