Our most popular program to achieve balanced life for you and your dog includes the following:

Basic obedience training:

This covers commands such as sit, stay, come, heel, and down. This will help you establish good communication with your dog and set a foundation for future training.

This is an essential aspect of pet ownership. We will help you train your dog to go potty in the appropriate place and reduce accidents in the house.

This is a fun way to bond with your dog and improve their mental stimulation. Tricks like "shake," "roll over," and "speak" are great for dogs of all ages.

If your dog has any specific behavioral issues, such as separation anxiety, barking, or destructive behavior, we can help you modify those behaviors through positive reinforcement training.
