What does a good dog look like to you?

  • Does your dog embarrass you in public?
  • Does he pull on the leash, bark at guests, and jump up on your friends?
  • Wouldn’t you love a dog you can live safely and peacefully with?
  • How about a dog that happily follows your lead?
  • Do you wish you had the dog that your friends complimented all the time?

Great news! We can help!

Sarah has so many fresh ideas about animal training! I have trained dogs for 45 years and Sarah gave me quite an education. I’m so looking forward to working with her again.

Why our training works

Comprehensive Programs. Our programs focus on setting up your family for success, teaching your dog the behaviors that it needs to know to be a great companion for your family, and teaching you how to avoid common problems that arise with dogs and their people.  Each program is completely personalized to meet the unique needs of your family and your dog!

Completely Personalized. Our goal is to get YOU living peacefully with your dog and to give the two of you a balanced relationship. To do this, we get to know you, your family, and your dog’s unique story and situation so that we can create a program that will lead you to success.

The Results are REAL!  Do you want to help your dog fit into your family, and head off problems before they ever occur?  Of course you do! We help real people solve real problems, from potty training to manners and socialization! With you in control, you can be sure that your dog will be a happy follower, not trying to take charge.

Our Mission:

Our mission is to help families get their dog’s behavior challenges under control, so that common problems never happen!  We help you to avoid the stress and confusion of not knowing how to train your furry friend so that your whole family can be happy living a stress-free life with a well-behaved companion!
