Our training methods include a healthy balance of fun, fairness and clear boundaries. 

Recognizing that your dog will always think and behave like a dog is the first step. 

A great deal of our training is based on shaping behaviors.

We cater to the needs of the new dog owner and will help you understand your dog so your training partnership is based upon a harmonious and fun relationship.
