Do all dogs need training?? 

Yes. When you bring a dog into your home it's important that you and your dog learn to communicate clearly and consistently with each other. A great place for that to happen is during training. And training is great for dogs of all ages!

  • Puppies are adorable, that's why we love them. But there are puppy behaviors that are less than endearing - like chewing the furniture or shoes and house soiling.

 

  • Not quite a puppy, but not a calm adult - get ready for adolescent antics! It happens to all dogs - boundless energy and sometimes new (and undesirable) behavior seems to appear out of no where.

 

  • Welcome home, Fido! Adding a new dog to the family is exciting. And then the honeymoon is over and it's time to really get to know each other.

 

  • Finally, the kids get that dog they've been asking for and all is not going quite as planned. We've been there and can help!
