You can learn how to guide your dog to good behavior, if you’re open and willing to change. Puppies learn the rules from their mother from day one and often times lose that structure when they are placed with humans.
When dogs live without direction, they become confused and that’s when unwanted behaviors start to emerge. We’ll teach you how to establish leadership and correct these unwanted behaviors to have a happy, peaceful and fun bond with your loving companion/s. We can handle potty training, leash aggression, pulling on the leash, crate training, socialization, jumping up, barking, digging, chewing, separation anxiety, aggression or other issues.
For your new puppy, rescue or the dog you've just had enough of, we can show you how to achieve balance without bribing with treats or scolding like crazy. We are fair, honest and get results through trust, respect and love (and sometimes treats if that's what works for a particular dog).
Living with dogs is a lifestyle. We offer lifestyle dog training.

Rehabilitation [ree-huh-bil-i-tey-shun] : to restore something to it's original state.
Like Cesar Millan, we rehabilitate dogs and train people. Many trainers offer a board & train or "bootcamp" program to take in dogs and work with them over a few weeks without the owner present. We have followed this format as well but have found that the owners typically need just as much or more training than the dogs. So we've changed to doing a long term rehab program that has the owners more involved.
For dogs that need more work than the average or if you came looking for a board & train, we offer multiple sessions with the dog and owners so that the change happens for the relationship as a whole, not just the dogs (or half). We take it on a case by case basis and sometimes may include a few nights of boarding or a day train where the dog stays with us for a short period so everyone can take a breath but then the work begins with you. We've found more success with this program because the owners are better equipped to handle their dogs behaviors and they've put in the work to get their relationship back on track. Pricing is the same as the private sessions listed above which makes it very simple and we do as many sessions as you need. No prepaid package or large deposit, just sessions tailored to your individual needs.
