*Understanding the psychology of motivation, drive and praise is what we do! Teaching you how to use your dogs’ instincts to your advantage is what we live for! We believe that the foundation of any relationship is communication.  Without it, both of us are lost. Dogs speak a different language but the good news is, we can help you understand that language! We will teach you how to motivate your dog to work with you not against you! 

We use a wide variety of tools for different dogs. We are experts in teaching you how to use them safely and effectively.  As with every tool, if it is not used correctly it can be dangerous.  Examples include slip leads, training collar, prong collar, low-level e-collars, crate and treats or kibble.
