Training Programs

All of our Training Programs are Private.  Every 1 hour session is fully dedicated to you and your dog.  We train owners & dogs together, using Positive Reinforcement and Relationship/Leadership training methods (no force or harsh methods).  We believe that through proper & balanced Basic Obedience Training, the relationship between dogs and owners improves greatly and is the basis for a healthy and happy life experience together for all.  Through our various training programs, we can teach you how to be a kind and confident leader – this is what dogs really want and how they thrive.

SERVICE DOG TRAINING

Psychological Service Dog Training & Emotional Support Dog Training require more detailed and advanced training programs. After an Assessment of your dog and situation, we can provide an estimated cost and duration for a program tailored to you. This program requires more extensive and frequent training with the dog and owner, as the dog will be required to perform and behave at a highly advanced obedience level at all times.   

GETTING STARTED:  IN-HOME-ASSESSMENTS

1 Visit – FREE

Our first step is to offer a free In-Home-Assessment.  The Assessment offers you the opportunity to meet us, and offers us the opportunity to observe your dog in a setting he/she is comfortable in.  During the Assessment we evaluate your dog’s need for training, and become familiar with the training goals you would like to achieve with your dog.  The Assessment is approximately 30 minutes, is free, and there is no obligation – you can decide on a training program after we meet.
