We use only reward based training to help dogs become well adjusted, confident members of the family able to make good choices. We offer training to help your puppy become a confident puppy, basic good manners, problem solving, group classes and in this time of social distancing, we are offering virtual live consultations.

We emphasize concept training through the use of fun brain games. Our services include private in-home training, Puppyhood 101 and solving behavioral issues. Numerous group classes include: Basic Good Manners, AKC Canine Good Citizen, Community Canine, Urban Canine, Novice, Intermediate and Advanced Trick Dog,as well as Rally-O and Variety Sport Pak. All training is reward based, never any pain, fear or intimidation tactics used.

Private in-home training provides you with as much individual assistance as you need and can be scheduled around your busy schedule. Many issues need to be addressed in the home; jumping on visitors and trying to run out the door need to be addressed in the home environment. Some dogs are reactive or shy and need to start their training in the security of the home. Sharon will design a training program that will specifically meet the needs of you and your dog. This program is for dogs of all ages. Problems that are addressed, but not limited to, are the following:

  • Won’t listen
  • Not house-trained
  • Won’t come when called
  • Jumps on people
  • Annoys company
  • Overly excitable
  • Nervous urinator
  • Playfully biting
  • Digs in the yard

 

Puppy Hood 101 is a great way to start young puppies out on the right path immediately. The new puppy parent can learn how to effectively and humanely train the puppy and avoid many common mistakes that people make. Sharon will explain all the steps necessary to house-train the puppy, how to handle puppy biting, how to become a leader, how to prevent problems from occurring, and basic leash training. Puppies can begin at seven weeks.

Numerous group classes include: Basic Good Manners, AKC Canine Good Citizen, Community Canine, Urban Canine, Novice, Intermediate and Advanced Trick Dog,as well as Rally-O and Variety Sport Pak. All training is reward based, never any pain, fear or intimidation tactics used.
