OUR TRAINING PHILOSOPHY

Our training methods are based on motivation, praise and correction focusing on communication and understanding.

The goal of our training is to make YOU the trainer and pack leader. As pack leader your responsibility is to make, teach and enforce fair and consistent pack rules.

Dog Owners are taught how to communicate with their dog without using food bribes or fear based methods; and how to utilize effective praise and correction techniques without using pain compliance.



TRAINING SERVICES

Whether you have a puppy or an adult dog, training is the best way to solve problems and build a good relationship between you and your dog.

Our goal is to help you have the dog you always wanted. Training is fun for you and your dog; it strengthens your bond, and improves your dogʼs behavior.

All dogs and owners have different needs and goals. Therefore a training program will be tailored to these needs in order to achieve the goal of a well trained dog that fits in your family and suits your lifestyle.
