From pet owners who are way to busy and need a jumpstart all the way to those that want to do it themselves but want a professional guide... let me help!

Learn about the process and programs below...

Let's get started on the path to having the dog you've always wanted...

STEP 1 - The Intro/Eval Lesson...

Before beginning any dog training program, I want to make sure you have all of the information needed to make an informed decision about what is best for you and your puppy or dog.  

During the Evaluation/Intro Lesson I will cover development, help you understand the "why" and teach the core elements of changing behavior in dogs explaining how these can help you.

We will discuss your dog in detail, the goals for your dog and I'll explain the role the human plays.  I'll help you understand the programs and recommend the best one for your dog.


Step 2 - Get started training...

Once you choose the program you want... we get to work on the Whole Dog! 

I'll guide you in truly understanding and living with the puppy or dog you share your life with in a way you may have never experienced.

In addition to lessons at my facility, all programs include the ability for off-site lessons as well.  These may take place at your home, at a park or us getting a cup of coffee while we work.

The ability to enjoy a walk, have your dog come when called and get coffee or lunch while out in public is not only possible... we train for it.

Step 3 - Be supported after the program.

All new clients receive online support via the online membership group and to help reinforce the in-person lessons while training.

Once the in person training program is successfully completed you will continue to be supported by me via the membership group where you will have the opportunity to take part in special training classes and webinars to truly build a quality relationship with your best friend.

So years from now, should you need help or have a question I'm often just a message or phone call away!


A Private Lesson Program designed for YOUR dog or puppy!

This is the exclusive Private Lesson Program, where I teach a comprehensive "Whole Dog Approach" to training. I understand that every canine is a unique individual, and as such, my program is tailored to address the complete well-being of your best friend regardless of age. Through personalized, one-on-one sessions during the program, we delve into a curriculum that goes way beyond basic commands, focusing on fostering a harmonious bond between you and your dog.
I combine behavior modification techniques, a positive reinforcement approach and a deep understanding of canines to create a tailored plan that addresses your dog's specific needs, temperament, and learning style.
From functional life skills (thinking beyond "obedience" because what we used to call "obedience training" was often wasted time on things many clients didn't use and many dogs didn't need) to addressing behavioral challenges, the Private Lesson Program offers an experience that not only enhances your dog's as wells your own skills but also strengthens the connection between you and your beloved pet.
Join me on a journey to unlock your dog's full potential and build a lasting, fulfilling relationship and help them become a true "Top Dog"!

A Residency or Daytraining Program built around YOUR dog or puppy!

This is the comprehensive Day Training and Board & Train Program, where I use a  "Whole Dog Approach" to provide an immersive and transformative experience for your best friend regardless of age. Your dog will either benefit from tailored day training sessions or enjoy a comfortable and nurturing environment during their stay with me at my house and property.
I focus on addressing some behavioral challenges, life skills, and fostering a deep understanding of your dog's unique needs. A Daytraining or Residency Board & Train allows for consistent reinforcement and ample practice, ensuring your dog receives a well-rounded education.
With daily updates and reports, a LOT of pictures and opportunities for your involvement, I prioritize transparency and collaboration. This program aims not only to impart valuable skills but also to instill confidence, creating a well-adjusted and happy dog ready to seamlessly integrate into your family life. 
Our Residency Board & Train or Daytraining program typically consists of 3 weeks where your dog will either live with me or spend the day with me, my family and my dogs on our property.  I will personally work with your dog to bring out the best in them and then follow that up with Private One on One Lessons with you to ensure success.
