Best. Dog. Ever
When you start with this program, your puppy will grow up knowing so much you will never have issues or problems to fix later on. This leaves you room to rain him for a sport or game if you want, or just have him be the best behaved dog on the block. A dog you can take to family functions, ball games, or just travel out and about with confidence knowing he will listen and behave appropriately. Why settle for a dog with bad habits you have to break when you can build a great dog from the ground up?

Good At Home

Is your dog really a good dog, but just needs a little help listening? Jumps on guests     (because he’s excited!)  Maybe runs out the door, and doesn’t always come when called in the yard? Maybe he is “counter surfing” or he pulls on the leash when you walk him. Wouldn’t it be nice if he could greet guests politely, go for a walk without pulling. We have a program for that! Then the Good At Home Program is for you

This program includes:
Basic good manners around your home and yard, and polite on-leash behavior in public.

Sit (and stay!), Come when called , Loose Leash walking, Leave It, Polite Greeting, ( no jumping on people, no charging the door ) Down (lie down and stay),… even when you’re eating or visiting with friends; Perfect for dinner time and when you have company. How nice would that be?  We can do that.



Good To Go Program

You want the freedom to do what you love while your dog is around. Have people over while your dog behaves politely from the time you open the door. Go for embarrassment-free walks. Be able to leave for work without the chase around the yard.

Not only will he listen around the house now, but will also listen around distractions – like in public and when you have company over.

He’ll come when called, too. No more chasing around the yard or having to physically make him get off the couch when you say.

Or maybe there are just several things that you could use some help with… barking, running out the door, lunging at other dogs on leash, not coming when called, jumping, stealing things from the counters… whatever it is, we can help!

PLUS: Support by email or text whenever you need it. If you just can’t remember what we practiced, or have a new question, or just want moral support in your efforts to train your dog to be awesome. You can send me a video clip so I can critique how its going between lessons, and you can have as many lessons as you need–not having to worry about stuffing everything into a set number of times or pay by the hour.
