The key to having the kind of unique relationship that you have only dreamed of is by creating a way to communicate clearly and fairly with your dog the behaviors that you do and do not want and in a way they can understand. We believe the best way to achieve this with your dog is through true obedience training. We look at obedience training as a language for dogs. And when you understand this language and use it properly you will be able to bring out the best in your dog and bring to life your dreams. To many times owners try to fix behavior that they don't want but fail only because they don't have a clear way to communicate with their dog. Our camp style programs give owners and their dogs personalized training, catered to the dog's individual needs, personality, behavioral issues and the owner's goals.
Like humans dogs are all different, keeping in mind that there are six different personalities found in dogs we adjust our training to the individual personality of the dog and then teach you how to work effectively with that personality. We start by building a relationship with your dog that can only come by our interaction with them on a daily basis. Then slowly and patiently we teach them this language of obedience. Remember most of the professional dogs in the world such as service dogs, military, Seeing Eye dogs, etc. are all trained in this same way, by a professional trainer with countless hours of experience and then placed with a handler or owner. It truly is a myth that a dog will not respond to its owner if they haven't trained them themselves. Whatever your problem we can help..
