About Us

VISION

All owners are taught effective and dog-friendly techniques, to build a life long relationship with their dog.


All trainers are instructed using the most scientific, and up-to-date methods to promote humane education. Trainers are certified through either ABC or CCPDT and must continue their education throughout their careers.


MISSION

Our mission is, first and foremost, to do no harm. Compulsion methods are unnecessary and will never be used. Positive training methods will be used to teach your dog how to behave appropriately. These are the same positive methods that have been used by zoos, marine mammal trainers and animal actor trainers with great success for several decades.


Knowledge is a powerful tool and we will never stop learning. Always looking to broaden our knowledge base, we continue our education by participating in e-mail lists for trainers, studying books and videos and attending conferences and workshops given by the top trainers in our field.

“I had done training through (name withheld). I didn’t realize I missed so much information in Kindergarten! Teaching my dog to leave items alone seems way easier now!”
