A Trained Dog is a Happy Dog!
When you trust your dog, you'll have peace of mind and they'll have more opportunities to have fun.
The Benefits of our Board and Train
Personalized training from a professional with hands-on instruction every day.
Only a few dogs are accepted at a time to ensure individual attention.
A structured environment is therapeutic for dogs, with guidance for every decision and strategically planned rest periods designed to reinforce learning.
A positive, balanced approach to training to extinguish problematic behaviors without conflict or undue stress.
I will forge a relationship and understanding with your dog to create tailored approaches for teaching or addressing challenging behaviors.
We offer boarding services for dogs we've trained, with daily brush-up lessons!
Take a worry-free trip knowing your dog is in the best hands.
Regain control and enhance your quality of life
They will learn
Exposure, socialization and the ability to perform improves confidence and a sense of security
Running away or bolting out the door can be challenging and dangerous.
Reactivity, like leash aggression, often comes from fear or frustration. We'll help your dog learn to manage its emotions and exhibit more acceptable behavior
Jumping on people, or barking when they come to the door is not usually considered good manners
Barking, whining, counter surfing, and trash diving are things you are probably not thrilled about. We help your dog learn human house manners

How it Works
Your dog will live in my home for a minimum of 21 days
I will train your dog to a Standard of Performance and Behavior
If it takes longer than 21 days, that's what it takes and there are no additional charges to you
Your dog will not stay in a warehouse or separate kennel facility
To achieve greater success, we begin training in a home environment around friends, family, neighbors and their dogs
Your dog is cared for and monitored 24 hours a day
Trained at a minimum of 6 locations for conditioning and exposure to distractions
Socialized around other people and dogs, in public places to improve confidence and reduce anxiety
Get acquainted with the process of getting into a vehicle and embarking on a trip.
At 9 days, get a written update of our progress, including areas to be addressed and things we are focusing on

After training the dogs we train the Humans!
Our 2-3 hour graduation lesson includes critical dog owner and handler skills, including leash handling, reinforcement drills, and canine leadership - everything you need to maintain your dog's training
The tools we use to train your dog come home with your dog. They will be customized to your dog and we will teach you how to use them, it's all included. No upsells, and no hidden fees.
At the end of the program, you'll receive lots of documentation including a 30 page guide, e-collar instructions, vocabulary and house rules, as well as links to training videos by James Hamm
