We ask a lot of our pups and our busy human world isn't always easy for them. Unwanted behaviors develop that can be disruptive, harmful, and impact your quality of life.

With our day training sessions, our trainer comes to your pup and works with them one-on-one while you're away! This is a great option if your dog needs work on house manners, recall, leash walking, & social skills or if you simply want to add enrichment to your pup's day or teach them specific skills or tricks. Also great if you have a busy schedule and have trouble finding the time to train yourself! Day training starts with a (free!) consultation with our trainer, face-to-face, to discuss the

Many of our clients love their day training so much they make it a regular part of their pups' life! For these clients, we offer a discounted rate of $5 off per session after their first 10 regular priced sessions.
If you like the sound of personalized one-on-one help, we can come work with you and your pup to solve your behavior problems. Private training also starts with a (free!) consultation with our trainer, face-to-face, to discuss your goals and make an appropriate training plan.

Have a quick question that needs a trustworthy answer? Scheduling a call with our trainer is a convenient way to get those answers fast. A phone call is also great for check-ins between private training sessions, or while your dog is enrolled in day training. So come ask an expert, we love to talk dog!
A live video chat offers the same benefits as phone consults, but with the added benefit of our trainer being able to see you train your dog and help model techniques and solutions in real-time. Please note that not all topics can be adequately addressed over the phone or in a video chat, and we may recommend further instruction if your issue requires a bit more attention.

Our training hikes are custom-tailored to fit your pup's needs. We teach the off-leash recall, good manners, and proper social skills your dog needs to safely enjoy off-leash hikes with you or with our group hikes. Training requires repetition and reinforcement to be effective. Each pup is different but most pups will build the skills they need somewhere between 4 to 10 training hike sessions.
The training hike includes a one hour training hike in the woods, door to door transportation, treats, toweling down, and daily hike reports.
Our Puppy Prep is a training package to start your new puppy off on the best possible paw! Includes one in-depth consultation before you get your puppy, a written training & lifestyle plan, four private one-on-one sessions, & four 50 minute day training sessions. You also get a treat pouch, kong toy, & clicker to use for training. This is the best way to get your puppy on track to living their best life! Puppy prep can be customized to meet your individual needs.
