Our Philosophy

We major in reinforcement and, minor in punishment. We prefer whenever possible to teach, and motivate the dog to do the right thing. But we do not shy away from the limited use of tactful, intelligent, and non-injurious punishment for dangerous and anti-social behaviors.

We challenge owners to be problem solvers, to address issues rather than avoid them, and to use trained skills to help them and their dog to be more agreeable companions to one another, and to allow them to share more of their lives together. We feel that conceptual understanding, and skillful application of training is empowering.

Our Standards

We guarantee that our training works. It doesn’t matter where you are starting, or what problems you have. Sure, it might take some folks longer than other to get there, but we're here to help and we won't give up on you.

We utilize an independent, third party standard for our obedience foundation training that every dog training with us will be able to meet. It proves that our training works, regardless of breed, size, temperament, or behavioral issue. And it informs and guarantees you of what you can expect us to accomplish, provided that you do your part, in exchange for the fees we charge for training.
