What We Do


Dogs are not humans.  We want to help you train your dog to make him/her a well-behaved member of your family, a dog whose companionship you can enjoy.   We make training fun for you and the dog using positive techniques and rewards.  
 
We know dogs can't say "please" and "thank you", but we can teach them to have good manners.
Our training is designed to teach you and your dog behaviors that will be useful in your everyday life and keep your dog safe.  Drop a jar of spaghetti sauce on the tile floor?  Put the dog in a “down” command while you clean up the glass.  Have company coming to the door?  Teach the dog not to jump but to greet visitors appropriately.  Trying to get out of the car without the dog bolting out first?   Use a “wait” command..   
 
Yes, it will take some investment of time and practice on your part.  But the rewards will be bountiful, long-lasting and you will truly have man's best friend.   On the way, we'll have fun together!


Greeting a Stranger

 
 


Greeting a Stranger

Does your dog jump on people to say hello?  Does your dog jump on you when you come home getting muddy pawprints all over your good work clothes?  Would you like him to sit calmly and quietly while you and others pet him?  Train your dog to do it just like Beau!












Stay

Does your dog get up the minute you turn around or walk away?  See how a good stay is possible with proper training.




Leash-Walking

Does your dog take YOU for walks?  Afraid your shoulder’s going to be pulled out of its socket?  Teach your dog to walk nicely on a loose leash.
