Training for Life

Is your dog running over your life?


Your dog can be a joy to be with! 

Trained for real life situations, so you can include them in your everyday life. 


That's Training for Life and results are immmediate!

The 1st step is the Evaluation, which is about an hour.  You and your dog will quickly learn 3-5 new skills to gain immediate improvement, and your dog will be exhausted!


NO MORE PULLING, RUNNING AWAY, or Jumping!  For all your behavior concerns -  customized obedience, behavior modification and safe socialization are included to teach your dog good manners.  Our lessons are held in a convenient location, or in your home.


Together we can decide which of our programs matches your needs.  You can choose to work one on one with me or to attend group classes. 


Good Dog Manners Program:  You'll learn problem solving skills (no jumping, no biting, pee outside please!) plus the most useful obedience commands and games to play to burn your dog's physical and mental energy.   Most behavior problems in the home are solved by learning how to communicate better with your dog.  *Generally 4 sessions to teach Come, Sit, Down, Stay, Settle, Off, Loose Leash Walking


Awesome Dog Canine Good Citizen Program:  Obedience and Reliability around distractions. 

This course takes things a step further so you feel you can trust your dog in different distracting situations.  In addition to all the topics covered in the Manners program,  your dog will become more reliable around real life distractions.  8 private sessions + Canine Good Citizen Testing


Amazing Dog Advanced:  Off - Leash Obedience:  Take your dog anywhere, anytime and enjoy obedience, even at a distance!  This training will solve nearly every behavior problem in the book.  Freedom comes with no strings attached!  Your dog will respond quickly to all obedience commands  * Generally 8 private sessions OR a 2 week stay with the trainer. Includes equipment. 


Get Started!


QUESTION:  Do I pay for Level 1, then Level 2, then Level 3 too? 


ANSWER:  If you start with Level 1, then discover you are excited to make your dog even more Awesome, then you just invest in more training time.  I'm here to help you reach your goals with your dogs.  If, after our evaluation, the Amazing Dog (Level 3) is the best match, you get the greatest overall value for our time together.  Some dogs will not qualify for simply Good Dog Manners (Level 1) due to more severe behavior concerns, and all of this will be covered in our 1st session together.  Our Training for Life program offers lifetime training support for your family's dog.   That's right, we are training your dog for life.
