Dogs are learning all the time. By the time a dog is 4 to 6 months old they start forming their own ideas about how the world works and it may not match what you have in mind. Does your dog come when you call them? Are they pulling too much on leash? Is your dog barking, jumping, and still nipping? Do they get excited by noises, people or dogs?  Let’s set you up for success and get your pup to focus on you instead of everything else in their environment.

All training starts with an initial consultation where I will assess your dog and together we will determine the best course of action that meets your goals, and strengthens your relationship.
