    to Come When Called Dog Training!

    Does your dog operate according to a different set of definitions?


    • Does saying hello mean knocking you—or a complete stranger—down?
    • Does relief mean eliminating whenever—and wherever—the urge strikes?
    • Does a walk mean dragging you along to sniff fascinating clumps of grass?
    • Does a hobby mean chewing the sofa cushions?
    • Does a snack mean stealing the Thanksgiving turkey from the kitchen counter?
    • Does any little distraction mean a good reason to ignore requests to sit, lie down or come when called?

    If any of this sounds familiar, you’re in the right place. I can help.

    Using scientific, positive training techniques and a huge bag of professional tricks collected over thirteen years of training dogs and puppies, I can get you and your dog reading from the same dictionary. I can show you how to turn your problem dog—no matter how big or small the dog or the problem—into the well-mannered companion you’ve always wanted.

    Call for private dog training lessons, group dog training classes and puppy kindergarten.

    We use only gentle, positive reinforcement techniques that are people- and dog-friendly in addition to being fun and easy to learn for you and your dog.

    Our methods are based in proven scientific learning principles – not in tradition.

    We specialize in helping you turn your untrained or challenging dog into a well-behaved companion and good neighborhood citizen.
