Our Training Philosophy
Our training philosophy is to adapt positive reinforcement and behavior shaping techniques that work for each individual dog. This method is based on establishing and reinforcing solid fundamental behaviors the dog can later rely on as training advances. While others use the word "NO" to point out undesirable behaviors, we use it to teach the dog that hearing this word only means he/she is missing out on the fun!
A training evaluation of your dog is free if you visit us. If you prefer, we can also travel to you for only $50.00. The evaluation allows us the opportunity to become familiar with the needs and training goals of both you and your dog. It also allows us to assess the dog's temperament and personality, and see how well they work with new people. We will also discuss your goals and expectations of the program.

We are well aware that everyone's needs are unique. That's why our Five weeks Puppy Training Program (PTP) is designed to accommodate all your needs, in a convenient way. To work around your busy schedule, we offer a free pet pick-up and drop-off service, side-by-side with our unlimited follow-up for the life of your dog.
We teach five basic commands: sit, lay, stay, come and on-leash heeling. The commands are taught verbally and on leash. We also work to counter condition behavior problems. Some common behavior problems are housebreaking, chewing, digging, barking, bolting, jumping and mouthing. Once the dog has completed the training, we bring you and your family in for a one-hour orientation. Training the owners is the most important part of our obedience program! After the orientation, your dog returns home with you and you will schedule a time for follow-up lessons.
*One follow-up lesson is included with the program. After that, you can schedule as many sessions as you like.
**All our services are offered at a special rates to all of our puppies parent's!
