Our relationship based training is great for people who take direction and take learning new training tasks seriously. They are willing to keep themselves accountable to consistently train with their dog(s). They understand that caring for a dog is a lifestyle. Learn with your dog, more about your dog, and start to understand the reasons behind your dog’s behaviour. This is for people who want to build a strong relationship and high communication skills with your dog.
All of our in-person training is private, and happens in your home.*
For leash/walk training we usually work around your home but may suggest alternate locations to ensure we get the most focus out of your dog during training. All former clients are invited to our free drop-in classes to help ensure your dog continues good habits and can socialize with like minded owners in a healthy structured way.

We also spend time outdoors working on leash handling skills and improving your dogs reliability and attention during a walk.
