We are a positive reinforcement based company that follows the LIMA (least intrusive, minimally aversive) ethics of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers. Every case varies for the dogs needs and goals, and if other tools were to be recommended it is ultimately up to the owner to decide. Unless it was one of the client's goals to learn to use we do not use e-collars, choke or prong collars in the foundations of our training.
For our private training your dog can be as young as 8 weeks old with their first round of vaccination (distemper and parvo). You would need to provide your puppies kibble for a dog 8 weeks - 6 months old as a treat option.
For dogs 6 months + in age for private training, no prior items are required. We just ask that you let us know what you are feeding them so that we can match the same protein the first time we see you.
For group classes, board and train, and boarding dogs must have bordetella, DHPP, and Rabies along with proof of their vaccinations.
We cater every package to our clients' needs and goals. We also understand that everyone's financial availability varies and so do our prices. In order to find the best fit for you, please take advantage of our free consultation with our lead trainer, Ashley. Following your consultation call you will be scheduled for an evaluation. This evaluation will determine the best program for you and your dog to reach your goals.
Each training session is 45 minutes to 1 hour long and usually takes place once a week although packages may vary based on your personalized package. We offer payment plans as well!
Although we work with problem behavior modification, and can work with reactive and aggressive dogs, at this time we do not take on dogs with a bite record. If your dog has a bite history we maybe able to assist you with referrals.
