Our Services

We offer private in-home dog training, as well as board and train and hybrid programs for behavior modification and rehabilitation in real-world settings. Our programs are tailored to the individual dog and all behavioral issues. Any dog. Any breed. Any problem.

In-Home Training

For owners who want to be fully immersed in the process and those whose dogs have lower-level behaviors and/or obedience issues, we teach you how to be a better handler for your dog by training you and your dog in your home and providing you.

Board & Train

Our trainers train your dog in their homes and real-world locations. This is a true "reset" and an excellent option for clients with less time to commit to a behavior modification training program or have a dog(s) with moderate to severe behaviors.

Hybrid Training

The best of both worlds! With a combination of both our In-Home and Board & Train programs, this fits any training goal or behavior with a foundational reset, then in-home sessions to incorporate what we have taught your dog into your life.
