In Home Dog Obedience Training

The benefits of one-on-one obedience training with your dog are obvious. First and foremost, your dog can train at home where it is comfortable in the environment. You may find that this helps in terms of confidence and comfort for your pet. Private dog training also offers the opportunity for both you and your pet to truly focus. There are fewer distractions present and as such you can get a bit more out of your training session, especially if your dog is the type to get easily excited or distracted.

The fact of the matter is, if you are trying to strengthen your relationship between you and your dog and you want to ensure that your dog gets intensive guidance and attention, you can truly benefit from one-on-one obedience training we offer.

Puppies are supposed to be FUN!

They also have different training and behavior requirements than older dogs.

Good Puppy Training doesn’t just deal with existing behavioral problems, it should also be focused on preventing future behavioral problems. In fact, in our private in home puppy program, we will discuss many preventative measures. 


Puppies are learning every waking moment. If they are socially isolated, and not using their brains, then they become hard to deal with when their older.  If they are teased and roughed up, they grow up to be wild and sometimes aggressive. If they are coddled and left to do whatever they please, well, of course, they become bratty. If they are given lots of good early socialization, properly supervised, contained, handled, trained, and house trained from the very start, ONLY THEN do they turn out to be really excellent adult dogs.

Learn how to communicate with your puppy in a way they will understand.  We address all things Puppy  including, puppy nipping, inappropriate jumping, chewing, digging and all of those normal behaviors that puppies do along with them learning how to handle REAL LIFE situations and you learning how to help them cope in these situations.  We will also get them started on learning some basic obedience commands:  Focus, Sit, Down, Wait, Leave it, Come (when called) and loose leash walking  as well as some fun learning games.

Foster & Adopters of Rescue Dogs Training

Rescue dogs that have entered into the shelters generally will come out with some issues.  We specialize in working with dogs and owners who are fostering or have adopted a rescue dog.  Many times they may become very fearful of humans because human trust is broken when a dog is abandoned.  The shelter environment is very stressful for dogs and depending on how long they are their behavior issue may begin to develop.  Rescue dogs are our passion.  Don't give up on your rescue we can help.

Anyone who foster's, adopts, or volunteers for dogs are amazing people.
