The question everyone asks, "what is my style?" This isn't as clear cut as it seems. With 20yrs of training experience and attending multiple training workshops a year on top of being certified, I have become proficient in all styles, so I use that knowledge to work with the dog in front of me in whatever manner motivates that dog to work for me. This isn't to say I don't correct. I redirect when I can and I correct when needed. Now, correct doesn't mean "hurt the dog" as many have in their head when they hear correct. "Correct" may mean with hold a treat or toy until they do what was asked, or it may mean give pressure on a leash. It really depends on the dog and what they can handle. I am never unbalanced in my praise or my correction.
These are 1hr sessions once a week. We offer a-la-cart and packages of 3 or 5. Sessions are best for some families but not all, so we do require a consultation either by phone or in person to make sure this is the best option for you and your dog.

Day Training Camp
This program is great for the busy family on a budget. It does require you to be more involved in the training process. Your dog will come for the day and learn their commands and then you will have homework each night.
This camp is a Tuesday - Thursday commitment. You can drop off between 7a-9a and pick up is between 4p-7pm. If they end up staying overnight an overnight fee of $70 will apply.
A consultation is required before booking, just to make sure this is the right program for you and your dog.
Cost:$300 per week
This program is for puppies 3mo-5mo and is a 3-week, Mon-Thur commitment. You will drop your puppy off between 7a-9a and pick up between 2p-7p each day.
Puppies will learn basic commands, kennel manners, build confidence and learn to play appropriately in group play. This program can be customized to address any "manners" related issues as well. This program is NOT for any behavior problems. If you are unsure if this is the right program for your puppy, please schedule a free consultation either via phone or in person with our trainer.
Cost is $1500 for the 3 weeks.
Classes are the most budget friendly options, but they do require YOU to do work in between classes in order to be successful. All classes are 4 weeks and $200, except the reactive class, which is 6 weeks and is $360. Payment is required to hold your spot in class and is non-refundable.

Puppy Foundations (3mo-6mo)
This class is set up as a "rotating" schedule. This class focuses on teaching puppy parents how to navigate the first couple of months of puppyhood. Kennel training, house training, desensitization, proper environmental stimulations, proper "socializing", very basic introduction to leash walking, sit, down, place, leave it, drop it, wait and here.
Meaning every 4 weeks the agenda repeats. So, puppies can start any week.
Cost is $200 for the 4 weeks
The following classes are for dogs 6mo and up. Cost for each class is $200 for the 4 weeks.
Basics- 4-week class will meet the same day each week for 1 hr. We will teach the basic commands and cover basic house manners. This class is a great place to start if your dog has never had any formal training.
Rally Class- 4-week class that is to encourage a fun learning experience for you and your dog. It is an "obstacle or circuit training" type class made after the sport "Rally Obedience". We are not competitive; this is for fun and mental exercise for your dog. Like the puppy class this is a rotating schedule every 4 weeks so you can join at any time.
Leash Reactive class is $360 for the 6 weeks.
**Leash Reactive Class- 6-week class with a limit of 4 dog teams per class. The first week is a "human" only class. I will lay out rules, foundations, what to expect and explain what "reactive" means and how we are going to tackle this in a class setting. An evaluation of your dog is required before signing up. This class also requires your dog to be muzzle conditioned prior to the start of class. This class is designed to teach you how to handle your reactive dog to keep everyone safe and to enjoy your walks again.
Our most popular program
We offer boarding and trains from 3 week-8 weeks; pricing will be discussed after our initial free consultation.
We offer 2 options for board and trains. First option is when your dog stays at the facility throughout their training. Option 2 is our VIP program, your dog lives with our owner and Master Trainer. Option 2 does come with additional fees. These options will be discussed in our consultation.
Before booking a board and train, every family is required to do a 30min consultation in person to help decide which program would be best based on goals and realistic expectations. All consultations are done at our facility. Keep in mind that we only take 4 board and trains at a time to ensure the proper time is spent with each dog. So, there may be a wait to start your board and train.
What makes our board and trains more reliable? At the end of the training, we will bring your dog home to you for the transfer. We prefer doing this so we can see any hurdles you may face in their environment. Our programs also come with built in follow ups. Follow ups may be used at any time for any training that was done within the first year after training. All board and train alumni are also allowed to attend any group classes for free. We offer this to help with practicing with your dog in a controlled environment.

3-8 week programs
Let's get basic:
Puppy Raising Program is a
The cost for this program is $18,000 for the 6mo. You DO not need your puppy to set this program up. It may be established before the puppy comes home.
Advanced Off Leash:
Cost will depend on the length of the camp.
Cost will depend on the length of the camp.
What is taught in the 3 weeks?
Heel- walking on a loose leash around all distractions.
Sit, Down, Off, Place, Leave-it
Recall- in the backyard and house only
Remember this is not an off-leash program so you will need a leash on your dog for them to comply until they learn you now know all of the commands and you will enforce them.
The biggest difference between 3-week and the 4–8-week programs are the number of field trips your dog will go on during their training camp.
What is taught in the puppy jumpstart?
Puppy jumpstart is for puppies up to 6mo and is exactly what it sounds like. I will work on all the puppy basics like kennel training, house training, obedience foundations sit, down, off, leave it, drop it and place. Leash and public manner foundations will be taught as well. Foundations meaning, they are introduced to these commands, but it is up to you to utilize them in everyday life when they come home in order from them to remember long term.
Your dog will learn all the commands above in the 3 week but on and off leash. Along with a reliable recall off leash. Some graduates of the 3 week program can come back for the advanced off leash and finish in 2-3 weeks if you have kept up with the training.
What your dog learns in this program will depend on the behavior. This program is most beneficial for the "out of control" dog that needs a firm reset on rules, boundaries and limitations.
This program is designed to help you raise the best dog from day one. The earlier you start implementing rules, boundaries, play and obedience the faster you will enjoy your dog. Your puppy would live with our owner and master trainer for 6mo. You will have weekly check-ins and sleep overs throughout the 6 mo. This starts from the day you bring your new puppy home until they are 8mo old. You also get a lifetime of continued training after they complete this course, if you are keeping up with the foundations laid. If you slack and need it "fixed" then that would be an additional cost.
All training services require a 30min scheduled consultation at the facility. Consultations are free of charge and are done Tuesday through Thursday either between 10AM-7PM or I do offer them every other Sunday 10a-2p.
To reserve a board and train, first, a consultation must be done. After a program is decided on, a non-refundable deposit of 50% is due to hold your spot and the other 50% is due at check-in. I will email you all the training contracts needed and request your dog's vaccine and fecal records. I am the only trainer so the limit is 6 per month so your training may not start right away.
Please note that the training cost does not reflect any equipment needed. That will be billed at pick-up.
