Through this program, your dog will stop pulling every which way to every distraction, instead, learning to walk politely beside you. They’ll be taught to go lay calmly in a dog bed, useful for when guests come over, you’re eating, or simply to keep them out from underfoot. (A fan favorite command with our clients) Of course to sit and down, no matter the distraction or environment, with or without a treat. And the most important, to have a happy, healthy, respectful relationship with you. (Listening the first time you ask, not the 5th)

 
When it comes to training, what you put into it is what you get out of it. We empower you with a way to communicate clearly to help strengthen you and your dog’s relationship. Private lessons will benefit you a great deal if you’re committed to seeing results!

What is remote collar training? It’s using a low level tap to gain your dog’s attention either to request a behavior from them or to distract them from continuing an activity they should not be pursuing. Every client feels the collar before using it on their dogs and says it feels like a tickle. Remote collars are as far removed from shock collars as the first cell phones are to iphones. Your dog should not be afraid or in pain, but actually happy to see the collar and do the work.
The wonderful thing about this method is the ease of transfer from trainer to owner. Expect an excellent companion that has found a cheerful outlook on life.
Our most popular program is perfect for the dog that is struggling with more extreme behavior or an owner looking to be able to do more with their dog.
