Positive Dog Training

Need help with obedience and manners?  Train your dog without harsh, punitive methods that can scare your dog and increase anxiety and aggression.  Instead, we will teach you how to use your dog’s own motivation in our training programs.  Our reward-based dog trainers specialize in finding out what will motivate your dog – it might be treats or high value food items, or it might be affection, praise, toys, or games. Finding the right motivator is the key to unlock your dog’s behavior, coupled with learning about all the nuances, such as proper timing of rewards and how to vary rewards for long term success.

Teaching your dog to use his brain to figure things out is an excellent way to enhance your relationship with your dog and teach new skills.  Our skilled dog trainers will help you learn the best approach to training your puppy his first skills or teaching your older dog new tricks.

Lastly, training your dog should be fun.  It should be fun for both you and your dog!
