About

I believe in responsible dog ownership through positive reinforcement training and cooperative care.

Positive reinforcement training is all about focusing on what we want our dog to do, instead of focusing on what we don't want them to do. Rewarding a behavior makes it more likely to get repeated, so we mark and reward the behaviors that we like. Training with positive reinforcement is fun for both the human and the dog. It's a great way to build trust and a strong bond.

    Let's work 1 on 1 to teach your dog basic manners or to address problem behaviors like pulling on the leash. Receive an individualized training plan and get the feedback and coaching you need to reach success.

  • Group Classes

    Training your dog just got a lot more social. Group classes are 4-6 people max. We'll go over basic pet manners like sit, down, stay, plus some fancy tricks like spin, leg weaves and more. Learn the foundational skills you need to teach your dog how to do anything.
