There are many methods used in the world of dog training. We believe in training dogs and puppies with positive reinforcement techniques. We teach dogs and puppies to prefer to listen because they learn how much fun it is! We use games to teach dogs concepts of self-control, relaxation, and focus for awesome household manners. We also teach dogs basic obedience skills!

 

The more consistent you are, the faster your dog will learn because the communication and expectations are clear. We believe in teaching our clients how to grow their relationships by becoming better communicators with their dogs.

We will NEVER use force, fear, or shock methods to control your dog. All modern science-based canine behavioral studies show that dogs learn best through positive training methods. Which is awesome, because who really wants to hurt or make their best friend fear them? 

 

Overall, we are here to help you build healthy and sustainable friendships with your furry friends that revolve around love and optimism! Is there anything better than that?
