How Professional Dog Training Works

A professional dog training program is designed to resolve canine behavior issues, while teaching the dog new behaviors and skills that make owning a dog a dream come true.  We start with a behavioral assessment to see how severe/mild the behaviors are, then we set you up with a RESULTS-BASED training program.  We offer three styles of training for you and your dog, depending on your dog’s behavior, your time frame, and your goals.

  • In-Home Sessions – One-on-one training programs to give you that individual touch.
  • Day Training – We’ll do most of the work for you, while giving you the skills and tools you need to continue training at home.
  • Residency Programs – When your dog comes home, he’ll be the picture of a perfect pet.
