We offer gentle, friendly training for dogs of all ages.
Our methods are based in the science of positive reinforcement / reward based training – no “alpha” or dominance, no prong or shock collars (aka “e-collars”). Our training is force free, pain free, and fear free for you and your dog. We can help with good manners training, and solving behavior problems of all kinds — from the merely frustrating (leash-pulling, jumping) to the distressing (aggression, fear) – in your home or virtually.
COVID-19 UPDATE: We ask that all members of your household wear masks during the appointment regardless of vaccination status.
