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!

Free Evaluation!

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. 

Our BCT Two-week (Basic Canine Training) and AIT (Advanced Individual Training)

will Work to Modify/Teach the Following Behaviors

  • Recall/Come on Command
  • Basic Leash Heeling
  • Jumping on new People
  • Boundaries
  • Wait at the Door (optional)
  • Stay in Place on Command
  • Sit & Stay until Released
  • Digging/Scratching (optional)
  • Puppy Mouthing Management (optional)

  • Pulling on the Leash

  • Crate Training (optional)
  • Off-Leash Training (optional)
  • Unwanted Barking (optional)
  • Stay away from furniture (optional)
  • Housebreaking/Potty Training (optional)
  • E-Collar Training/Introducing (optional) 

We are well aware that everyone's needs are unique. That's why our TWO-WEEK BOARD & TRAIN are 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.

Upon graduation/finishing the BCT (Basic Canine Training)], your dog will sit, lay down, come when called, stay in place when instructed, and walk on a loose leash (no pulling, nor jumping).

Upon graduation/finishing the AIT (Advanced Individual Training), your dog will understand boundaries, walk Unleashed, wait at the door and/or kennel/crate until told to go out and be E-Collar trained. 

We guarantee you and your dog will achieve remarkable results. Although it's not mandatory, your dog will most likely need to attend the AIT (Advanced Individual Training) Program within six months to allow us adequate time to shape and re-enforce the new behaviors. It is a fact that learned behaviors are not as solid as those that are genetic; the dog is more likely to revert to his/her old behavior especially if he/she feels stressed. This is why we offer the second phase, which re-enforces what the dog has learned. 

Once your dog graduates our training, we shift our focus to you in order to teach/educate you on how to handle, keep reinforcing our methods and how to use the E-Collar correctly & effectively if applicable . This helps to maintain consistency for the dog and encourages successful adoption of the new, desired etiquette. We will also make sure you feel 110% in maintaining the training program at home.

Our TWO-WEEK BOARD & TRAIN makes going on a vacation even more fun! Fantasize about coming home from a nice vacation to meet your "new", well-behaved companion who will be dropped-off at your convenience.
