"He is your friend, your partner,
Your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."

A well-behaved dog is such a pleasure to have around. Unfortunately, dogs are not born knowing how we want them to behave or what we expect from them. Without training, dogs will be dogs...they will likely pee (or worse) on your carpet, jump on you and your guests, make chew toys of your favorite shoes and probably run in the opposite direction as you chase them down the street yelling "Come here! Bad dog!". But it doesn't have to be that way. You owe it to yourself, your family and your dog to teach him what is expected of him, how he should behave and what rules he needs to follow. Dogs inherently want to please us. All they need is a little direction. Once you've given him some basic training, your dog will be happier, more relaxed and more confident and you will enjoy him so much more!

Wouldn't it be great if your dog would "sit", "stay" or "come" with just a word from you? How great would it be if he performed those commands without any words at all? It would be pretty awesome, right? We will teach your dog to do just that! Our obedience courses include verbal cues and hand signals. With a little practice, your dog can learn to perform the commands with just a hand signal from you.

There are differing opinions concerning what method is best for dog training. We believe in training with a gentle hand. We will never use, or ask you to use, shock collars, prong collars, or choke chains. Any "hands on" during our training is always gentle and used only to guide a dog into position or to assist him in performing a particular action. There will be no yelling, pushing, or pulling and we will never use physical punishment of any kind. We use only positive reinforcement and reward to teach the commands and desired behaviors.

Our methods are proven, reliable and guaranteed. If there is ever a command or behavior that your dog hasn't learned by the end of the course, we will continue to work with you and your dog until he does learn it.

If you have any questions I hope you will give us a call, or if you prefer, send an email and we will respond promptly.

I look forward to working with both of you!
