Dog training Program

Just like puppies, adolescent and adult dogs can present their own unique challenges. Let’s work together to help your dog do more of what you want, and less of what you don’t want.


We can help you with:
  • Leash manners
  • Recall/Coming when called
  • Polite greetings
  • Attention in new or distracting environments
  • Manners at home and out in the community
  • Problem behaviors (e.g., excessive barking, jumping up, counter surfing)
  • Building confidence in fearful or anxious dogs
