Training dogs is as much about teaching your dog to listen as it is about teaching you to communicate and understand your dog. Let us be your guide to the wonderful world of a well behaved dog. You will learn to appreciate your dog better and start a new chapter in your relationship together. We offer a free initial consultation for all customers and all of our classes are available as private sessions at-home, in office, or board and train.

This course covers basic commands for a successfully obedient dog. We will work with you and your dog on all of the essential commands under low distraction including sit, stay, down, heel and leave it. You will work one-on-one with a trainer to communicate effectively with your dog.



  • Understanding of basic commands
  • Dog obeys commands consistently
  • Knowledge of both hand and verbal commands



Basic Obedience

Does your dog exhibit problematic behavior such as chewing or excessive barking? Our behavior modification class focuses on determining bad behavior triggers and aims to address the underlying cause while preventing it going forward.



  • Identification of triggers
  • Correction of undesirable behaviors including: jumping, leash pulling, door greetings, aggression and/or other behaviors as specified



Behavior Modification

This course covers all of the basic commands from our basic obedience class and then adds some more advanced work. You'll learn additional commands and skills as desired, such as: place, touch, asking to go out and more. If your dog already knows the basics, we can modify course length as needed.



  • Basic obedience results
  • Understanding of new commands and appropriate usage
  • Dog listens with intense distractions
  • Prepares your dog to be able to pass the CGC (Canine Good Citizen)
