COVID-19 Update: We are able to offer a combination of live streaming as well as in-person, outdoors and/or indoors, depending on your individual needs and goals.

Is your dog hyper? Barking/lunging at dogs or people? Shy or anxious? Just needs to listen and have good manners? Then this program is for you, the committed owner who wants to take your dog from that state of mind to one of calm, focus, and confidence so you can enjoy them fully at home and in public.

We will cover leadership so your dog will listen to you, self control for any out of control behaviors such as jumping or barking, confidence building in a healthy way. You will learn how your dog processes their universe so it’s easier for you to communicate with them and for them to understand what the heck you are talking about LOL. And leash manners around distractions, not jumping, off what is not theirs, relaxing in public, come when called, not lunging out of doors, and waiting politely while you cook or eat.

Reactive dogs will learn to walk past people and dogs politely.

For most exercises, kids are welcomed to participate so we can ensure a great relationship between them as well.
