Dog training with real results

Dog training enhances the bond you have with your dogDogs make good days wonderful and bad days bearable. They sit with us when we are sad, are excited when we come home and hang on our every word. There’s good reason for them being called “man’s best friend.”

Dogs do an amazing job of navigating our world – a place that inherently does not make sense to them because we do not speak the same language. Yet, they “get” us much better than we “get” them.

We unintentionally do things such as call them repeatedly, cuddle them when they are scared, and expect them to know stuff they have no reasonable way of knowing. By us not speaking their language, our best friend learns to ignore us, has anxieties and gets in trouble. It doesn’t have to be like this.

We know you love your dog! We love dogs, too – so much so that we have dedicated our lives to understanding them and making their lives (and yours) better through dog training.

Henry is a Goldendoodle learning to do a very special job for a very special little girl. Kennedy has cerebral palsy and Henry is her right hand man. Through months of training with us, Henry has learned to walk beside her power chair, pick up objects that Kennedy drops and carefully give them back to her, to stand steady while she learns to pull herself up and to keep that pretty smile of hers permanently in place. We're proud of Henry and Kennedy for making such a great Service Dog team!! ... See MoreSee Less

Dog training for fun!


Any dog can learn

If your dog is ABSOLUTELY perfect – a best friend who adds to your life, never gets into trouble or barks at the doorbell, and would never dream of chewing on a shoe – you can still deepen your relationship.

Imagine enjoying hiking without a leash and knowing your dog will respond; playing hide-and-seek; teaching them to roll over, high five or to fetch things! We have many classes you and your dog would love.

Dog training to fix problems


We specialize in rehabilitation of problem behaviors including aggression, chewing, digging, separation anxiety and more. Yes, we can help you with your dog.

If your dog is ALMOST perfect, except … he or she is afraid of storms, surfs the counter for food, jumps on people, pulls on the leash, has problems with other dogs, guards food/toys, etc… we can help.

We deal with dogs who have: dog-to-dog aggression; dog-to-human aggression; food aggression / possessiveness; fearfulness; shyness; sound and touch sensitivity; fear biting; fear of men/women/children; housebreaking problems; separation anxiety; destructiveness, escapism, self-mutilation; excessive barking, chewing, digging, jumping and car chasing every day.

You are not alone, and all hope is not lost.

I need help with problem behaviors!

Our mission is to make dogs’ lives great


Dog training can allow for off-leash freedom with your best friend.

Whether your favorite dog is a sweet four-legged furball whose biggest problem is leaving muddy footprints and hairballs around the house, one who hides under the bed when it storms or one who has unwanted aggression, we can help bring out the best in your dog through training. Dog training does not make dogs into robots – it does the opposite! Clear dog training helps your dog make sense of the world they live in.

Our “Whole Dog” Training



Our dog training is different – we get real lasting results by working with the “Whole Dog.” We teach you to think the way your dog thinks, to understand what matters to them and to work with who your dog naturally is.


Every dog, problem, owner, situation, solution is different. So is our approach to dog training.
