It is important to start training your puppy as soon as you bring it home!
Our training is designed to bring out the very best in your dog. We are teaching using positive reinforcement techniques and ALL Sessions are FUN With individualized attention for you and your dog.
We will give you the "tools" to train your dog at home between sessions and after your friend has graduated .
YOU will need to do 3-4 sessions of 5-10 minutes training a day, at home, to achieve your goals and to prevent your dog from becoming bored.
Keep it "short and sweet". Be upbeat and make it FuN. Keep in mind that puppies have a much shorter concentration span so minimize the time.
With every session we offer Life Long Service to every Student, with any future problems we can help with.
Special Discount for All Rescue Animals, Vet technicians, Military, Students, Seniors and repeating Clients.
Evaluation Session for Basic Manners Training (1.5 - 2 hours $55):
I will gather helpful information to find out where the problems may originate. While I have your undivided attention I will ask questions and we'll discuss a protocol for your particular situation.
Every family and dog is different, therefor I will design an individual training program for you after I have evaluated the situation and talked with you and your family.
Once my evaluation is complete you can choose to sign up for a training program to begin as soon as possible, or you may want to think about it and contact me later. Either way, you are not obligated in any way to sign up for further training should you, for whatever reason, decide not to do so.

Qualified dogs only!
Teaching your dog to comply with you when he's off leash can be hard. Although some dogs make the transition easily, without seeming to notice that the
leash is no longer attached to their collar, other dogs will take off for a long and potentially dangerous run.
Do not attempt to do off-leash work with a puppy. Only mentally mature, well-trained dogs should be worked off leash.
To keep your dog safe, never attempt to train off leash with an untrained, non responsive dog. In addition, always be aware of where you are and what is
surrounding you. Train inside with the outside doors closed or train outside in a securely fenced area. Make sure no one is going to open the door or gate
and leave it open while your dog is off leash. Be aware and be safe.
Before starting any off-leash training, evaluate your dog.
There are no refunds after sessions begin.
All dogs/puppies have to be current on their vaccinations, incl. Bordetella. Copy of Shot record required.
