Problem Behaviors

You love your dog, but you don’t always love the choices they make. Whether your pup is struggling with serious behavior problems like fear, aggression or anxiety, or just needs to refine their manners, we can help. Our training team utilizes the most effective, scientifically supported training methods that not only yield long lasting results, but also that enhance your dog’s quality of life. Great dog training isn’t just about telling your dog what to do, it’s also about helping them learn how to cope with the world around them and become a good, doggy decision maker.

We offer a unique training system that integrates a combined brain and body focus that goes beyond just giving your dog obedience commands and in addition helps your dog change how they feel in challenging situations so they can make better choices all on their own as well as look to you for guidance when they need it most. Included in every training is education and support for you, so that you know exactly what to do to set your dog up for success.

Board & Train

We Do The Heavy Lifting & Then Show You How To Maintain

The Board and Train Program is the fastest and easiest way to get your dog to learn new commands and skills all from the comfort of a trainer's home. During your dog's stay, we'll work on their training skills conducting at least 5 training sessions per day, all focused on meeting your goals.

Included in the Board and Train Program are field trips (as applicable to your dog), work around role model dogs as needed, regular training updates for you, and a detailed pick up lesson to review what your dog has learned so you know how to maintain their skills.

We only accept 1-2 board and training dogs at a time so that your dog's training is our top priority and we have as much time as your dog needs to change their behavior and get them well trained. Your dog will live comfortably in your trainer's home where they will be a part of the family, ensuring that their stay is both safe and fun.
