About our Dog training:
Our philosophy comes from the understanding that nobody is perfect, including our dog(s). We sometimes see all the bad things and overlook what is going right. Hearing it from a professional with a tweak here or there and seeing the wood for the trees is sometimes all it takes to feeling good again as family companions. And therefore, it sometimes just takes one professional session to get you and your dog(s) on track to success again. Whether it takes one session or more our goal is to help you find manageable ways to live with your dog(s), be happy together at home and/or in the community (e.g. with neighbors, your dog walker, other dogs). It's not about creating the stereotypical 'perfect' dog, but the perfect dog for you and your family. Our trainers will help you find harmony and work with you and your dog(s) toward the picture-perfect you have in your head, or the companion you were hoping for. The road leading to that goal is as important as the result
