Our award winning Puppy Head Start Program sets you and your new pup up for life long success. We set puppies up for success by creating a foundation of confidence, exposure and communication. 

Our award winning Dog Behavior Program paves the way for stress-free living with your dog. We know how to address severe behaviors inside and out.

IN-HOME DOG TRAINING PROGRAM

Do you wish you could walk your dog without them pulling?

Have you felt it's impossible for your dog to be around other dogs?

Just got a puppy and want to give it a solid foundation?

Does it feel like your dog will always be anxious or afraid? 

Has your dog bitten you, someone else or is aggressive towards other dogs or animals? 

We used LIMA and Balanced based training methods. We understand that normal "Dog Training" isn't tailored to yours or your dogs specific lifestyle or behavior. Almost all of our clients have worked with other "dog trainers" where the training is focused on obedience by bribing the dog into certain physical position (sit, down, stay, heel, etc.) without any focus on the emotional state of the dog or more importantly, the owner. Although obedience is a part of what we do, our calm and confident relationship building is our biggest tool when working with dogs and our hands-on approach is guaranteed to make your next walk stress-free and your home more peaceful.

REQUIREMENTS TO WORK WITH PLH
