Training

Dogs are NOT pre-programmed to live in our human world.  Our goal is to help close the communication gap between humans and their dogs.  Teaching dogs to be comfortable and confident with themselves allows them to  be Calm Dogs.  

Consultation-  Before committing to training we schedule a 60-90 minute meeting, which allows both parties to chat about challenges, concerns and training plans.  Answering questions about goals, expectations, training plan, homework and management.  Staff will meet the dog(s) and evaluate expectations of potential goals.     
-The consultation allows both parties to interview each other and decide on the best choices for you and your dog.
