  • I have tried other trainers before and didn't get any long term results- what makes your program different?
    Most of our clients and their dogs have been to other trainers. In fact, we are often the last hope for owners and their dogs. Unlike other training approaches that only focus on the symptoms (reactivity, leash pulling, aggression etc), we focus on the human-dog relationship at home and work to change the dog’s emotional state– how they view the world. Emotions dictates behavior and when we focus on teaching the owners to communicate fairly, that's when we see happy and well behaved dogs.
