How We Train

We can help with all of your training needs from puppy basics to reactivity and beyond!

Our training style is force free, positive reinforcement training. We believe that no dog needs to be trained through fear or pain as science and experience has shown us that positive reinforcement creates great outcomes and success. Reinforcement drives behavior and is scientifically proven to be the most efficient way to train. If you have any questions about this training style, feel free to ask! 


Fill Out an Intake Form

Fill out an intake form so that we can get the details about your dog, your goals, and relevant information to help us to help you best!  This will allow us to have the information needed in order to best assist you and to most efficiently match you with a trainer who can meet your needs!


Schedule a session or a consult

Once we have the intake form, we will reach out to schedule a session or a consult with you!  Consultations can be done through phone, Zoom or in person and your initial training session can be done either in person or visually as well!


The work (& fun) begins!

During your first session we will go over your goals, your individualized training plan, training games to practice in between sessions, and how to best meet your dogs needs.

Training walks

Training Walks and Meetups

About training walks and meetups:

We offer training walks either with the human or as an option for your dog to get a walk break during the day while you are at work or otherwise busy.  These walks are focused on meeting the dogs needs while also working on leash skills along the way.  This is a great option for busy pet parents who's dogs may need a break to get their wiggles out while the parents work, but are also a great option for those looking for a little extra assistance to work those leash skills alongside a trainer too!

We also offer meetups where you and your dog can join a small group to practice your skills around other dogs and humans.  This is a great way to work in a more controlled setting and help your dog to be successful around other dogs, humans, and more in the real world. These take place in parks, dog friendly shopping areas, and pet friendly locations where you can practice your leash skills, obedience and reactivity in small groups with a trainer.  Please see our calendar for scheduled meetups and locations.
