Help For Dog Guardians

How We Train

We offer private training lessons with you and your dog in the comfort of your home.

While most people picture taking their dog to a group class, private lessons are actually the ideal option for training your dog. Typically, your home is where the problem behaviors occur and where your dog will feel focused enough to learn. Depending on your training goals, private lessons may extend into the surrounding community. Sessions last 60 minutes and are accompanied by a homework handout for practice between sessions.

We use positive reinforcement training methods that are free of force, fear, pain, intimidation, and coercion.

Instead of “correcting” your dog for doing something ‘bad’, we work to prevent the unwanted behavior in the first place and teach your dog to do something you love instead. We reward your dog for making good choices and in turn those bad habits are replaced with behaviors you both enjoy. We choose this method of training because it is ethical, effective, efficient, and works for every dog.

Let's Get Started

Though we would love to train your dog forever, our goal is to give you the tools you need to confidently train your dog for the rest of their life so that you don't need us. That’s why we don’t just train dogs: we teach owners how to train their dogs.
