Follow up sessions are provided to help ease the transition of your dog back into your home and help you maintain his/her desired behavior.

Creating a positive and healthy environment is a necessity towards successful permission-based dog training. Our training packages are designed to create clear communication with your dog using one-on-one training, plenty of well-rounded exercise and interaction, and "go-home" sessons for you to continue the lifestyle changes we have implemented during training . Choose the package that best fits your needs or contact us for consultation as to which program would work best for you and your dog.

Dogs are amazing beings, they are intelligent, extremely social with a complex range of emotions. They are our partners, friends and allies. We should be the same to them.
Consistency goes along with clarity, but a good trainer knows when insistence on absolutes will discourage a dog.
A dog who doesn’t understand what is expected cannot consistently achieve those expectations. Good trainers do everything they can to ensure their dogs understand.
Create motivation to do something rather than to avoid something, The quickest fix isn’t always the best fix. It’s worth it to take a bit more time to build a desire to work.
Ultimately every great trainer is in the business to help dogs. To do this, it is essential that we understand the dog.
The best trainers I have ever seen all love their work and it is evident when you see them with a dog.

Platinum Board & Train $2295


If only our dogs could talk! The fact is, they talk to us all the time but we aren’t listening.  Dogs are physical beings and their conversations are plenty. They hold lengthy conversations with their energy, body language and eyes. Although growling/barking are forms of communication; the most important conversations are the ones that take place silently. Humans are verbal communicators. Everything has a word and sound. Yet, we are trying to live in harmony with a being that is a physical communicator. This program will help your dog understand clearly what is asked & we will work together to help build a bridge between you & your dog. In this 3 week program we use a variety of tools to train your pooch: rechargeable remote collar (with warranty), prong collar, and long line which are included in this program to take home for continuous training.
