Owner Education Course including Basic Dog Psychology and Behavior

This consultation is by far our most popular and beneficial. The information covered in this course is the absolute cornerstone to achieving a positive and well balanced relationship with your dog. This is a great option for owners that want to learn how to effectively understand and manage their dog without having to lose their patience. This short course consists of a 2 hour private consultation. The topics covered include basic dog psychology and behavior as well as practical training tips and leadership skills. It will teach you how to understand and communicate effectively with your dog and remove the stress of struggling to gain control. This is highly recommended for all dogs and owners of any age.

Remote Learning Consultations

Out of our service area? Out of state? Out of the country? No problem! We offer remote learning consultations via Skype and Facetime. These consults offer the same in-depth discussions regarding your problems and no corners are cut. Some people choose a quick 30-minute discussion to cover issues like potty training and others require a full 2-hour meeting. No matter what your problems or needs are, we can help you! Some people wonder how it’s possible to help if we don’t meet the dog. Just remember, it’s not the dog, it’s you! By making small tweaks to the expectations you have for your dog and learning to provide clarity in communication, you will be amazed at the difference. If it wasn’t a popular option for our out state clients and if it didn’t work, we wouldn’t offer it. Click here to get started.

Breed and Puppy Selection Consulting

Before you bring home a new dog or puppy, be sure it fits your personality and lifestyle.

Let us help you select the right dog for your lifestyle.
