Day Training

We do the work, training your dog for you, helping you attain faster results. This is a great way to get some traction on your issues with your dog, and makes training improve more quickly.  We can help with issues like pulling, jumping, recalls, and obedience work.  You will be involved in weekly transition sessions to show you the progress, and transfer those results to you. Call us for more information about our convenient and customized training packages.

In Home Behavioral Consults 

We come in your home and assess you and your dog(s) needs.  This includes assessing issues, training and a custom plan of action tailored specifically to your needs and abilities.

Whole Puppy Programs

We can help you from the very start providing help with choosing the proper breeder and/or puppy.   In home consult sessions pre and post puppy acquisition are available.  Also included in our Whole Puppy Program are any questions you may have via phone support.  This is the most important training you can do for your puppy and it starts at the very beginning.  Set your new puppy up for success!
