RELATIONSHIP-BASED

We know you got a dog to have fun, share adventures, and experience that unconditional love only a dog can give you. Not to feel frustrated or work complicated training plans or do things to your furry buddy you don’t want to do. Our relationship-based approach means you can train your dog with love and get the results you need.

FLEXIBLE

Our extensive background in the shelter/rescue field means we’ve worked with all kinds of dogs of various breeds, histories, and challenges. We know each dog is an individual and that what works for one dog might not work for another. We listen to your dog's story and fit our methods to your dog’s needs and help you find the solutions that work for both of you.

FUN

Training your dog doesn’t have to be a chore! And you don’t have to worry that you’ll be instructed to do things that might frighten your dog or damage your relationship. Our methods are easy to learn and focused on setting your dog up to succeed. Many are game-based, so you can relax and have fun while getting the results you need!

INDIVIDUAL SUCCESS

It can be hard in large group classes to get the individual attention necessary to master the skills needed to train your dog. All of our classes are small, and many 1-on-1, so you and your dog will never get lost in the shuffle. And since every dog and human learns a little differently, small class sizes mean we tailor the curriculum to your needs.

Let's Get Started!
