THE ONLY DOG TRAINING FACILITY IN THE AREA OFFERING OPEN ENROLLMENT, ONGOING DOG TRAINING CLASSES WITH A PUNCH CARD SYSTEM! START ANYTIME! NO MORE WAITING FOR THE NEXT 6 WEEK SESSION TO START AGAIN!
Our approach to dog training respects the intelligence of both you and your dog. We don't train your dogs, we teach you how to teach your dog. Our approach is 100% force-free, allowing the dog to problem solve, use their brain and figure out what you want them do to all by themselves! We heavily reward behaviors that we want to see again, and we remove reinforcement for behaviors that we do not want to see again. Our communication with dogs is clear through the use of markers which mark the behaviors that we want to reinforce. We will teach you how controlling (or managing) your dog's environment can help control or stop unwanted behaviors.
