Life With Dogs Made Easier...
At some point, someone in your household might leave a door ajar or a gate unlatched.

Our dog training methods are positive, yet not permissive, and are based in the latest science. First, we find out what motivates your particular dog, then we use motivation to train. In the classroom, we use primarily food as a reinforcement, but we are very careful to show you how to use it properly. Proper Use of Food in Dog Training
At home, you may be asked to use other motivators, such as your dog's regular kibble, toys, access to outdoors, or play.
Because fear is so easy to install, and so hard to eradicate, we opt for low risk dog training that's designed to boost your dog's confidence, and build a trusting relationship between you. This type of dog training does not mean that we are permissive or that we just throw cookies at our dogs! But, we don't use physical punishments, or painful collars, which recent research suggests can actually cause aggressive behavior in dogs:
