Obedience Session

 

Our obedience sessions are designed to be fast-paced, fun, and engaging for your dog. Not only do we train pet dogs, but we also incorporate the use of toys in our training plan to keep it stimulating and enjoyable for your furry friend. We specialize in training high drive breeds such as German Shepards, Australian Shepherds, Malinois, Dutch Shepherds, and bully breeds, as these breeds have a high energy level and require proper training to channel their energy in a positive way.

Our training methods include a variety of techniques such as games, lure, and reward to motivate and engage your dog in the training process. Our approach is based on increasing the value of the handler/owner, the value of the session, and the value of the interaction in order to gain the dog's commitment, rather than just compliance. We do not use punishment in our training methods, as we believe that making the training experience enjoyable for the dog is key to achieving success. Our goal is to help your dog learn to love training and look forward to each session.

In addition to obedience training, we also focus on building your dog's confidence and independence, helping them to develop their own unique strengths and abilities. Our goal is to help you and your dog create a strong, positive bond that will last a lifetime. With our specialized training methods and focus on high drive breeds, we can help your dog become a well-behaved, well-trained companion who also enjoys playing with toys.

Reactivity Therapy

 

Our reactivity service specializes in addressing all types of reactivity, regardless of severity. We have developed a reputation for our expertise in this area and now have clients coming to us from across the country, including Southern California, Nevada, and Washington.

Rather than just teaching dogs to ignore other dogs, we work to help them find comfort and curiosity and potentially socialize. Our unique approach involves nose-to-nose interaction and encourages play whenever possible, and very few other programs have the skills and knowledge to effectively work with reactivity in this way.

In 2022, we successfully helped over 800 dogs with reactive behavior, and we have documented 150 of these cases on social media. Additionally, we are committed to using positive reinforcement and avoid punishment at all costs.

We have never given a single leash correction since starting our company and instead focus on rewarding desirable behavior and building a positive relationship with each dog. We believe that this approach is the most effective and humane way to help dogs overcome reactive behavior.

Board and Trains

 

Our board and train program has gained popularity due to its comprehensive approach to addressing a wide range of needs. We work with dogs to resolve reactivity, in-home behavior issues, and socialization with other dogs. The program includes in-home training with four of our own dogs to provide a realistic and immersive learning environment. We also prioritize family integration, helping you and your dog build strong, positive relationships. Our program covers all aspects of obedience training, providing a thorough education for your dog. We are confident that this program will help you and your dog achieve your goals and live a happy, healthy life together. To ensure a comfortable and enriching experience for your dog, we allow them to roam and play with our dogs and kids in between training sessions rather than keeping them kenneled. We believe this type of environment is crucial for a dog's well-being and helps to create a positive learning experience. Additionally, we live stream our training sessions for both clients and a live audience to provide transparency and accountability. There is nothing we hide and we value complete transparency in all of our training programs.

Introducing our exceptional 4-week board and train program, meticulously tailored to address all your dog's pressing challenges and needs. This program is designed to tackle everything, from mastering the nuances of obedience in varied environments with distractions and stressors to addressing intense behavioral challenges. Whether your dog faces issues with reactivity, resource guarding, aggression, fear, or specific problems related to people, cars, kids, and so on, our comprehensive approach ensures no stone is left unturned.

Our program is a culmination of proven methods and has garnered immense demand in the community. We've had the privilege of collaborating with various rescues, transforming even the most challenging dogs into well-adjusted, thriving family members. The pride we take in our work is evident in every transformation story.

Prioritizing enduring results, our approach extends beyond just foundational behavioral modification. We emphasize a seamless transition of these positive behaviors from our facility to your home, ensuring both you and your dog reap the benefits.

We recognize the detrimental effects of traditional kennel environments on a dog's emotional well-being. So, rest assured, your dog will never be confined. Instead, they'll freely interact, play, and learn alongside our dogs and children, creating a wholesome and comforting learning journey.

Our program's initial week emphasizes relationship building and essential obedience skills. As we progress to the second week, these skills are tested and refined in real-world settings, from bustling downtown areas to tranquil parks. To maintain transparency and involve you in your dog's journey, we broadcast our training sessions for both clients and a broader audience.

But it's not just about obedience. Our 4-week program is a bridge to a deeper, more harmonious bond between you and your dog. They'll enjoy diverse socialization, joyful playtime, and a nurturing environment akin to a second home. Embark on our transformative 4-week board and train journey, and experience the profound change in your dog's behavior and the strength of your bond.

Couples Therapy

Our dog training sessions are designed to address issues with inter-dog conflict and aggression. We start by identifying the pressure points that are contributing to the problem and work to address them directly. Through counter conditioning and safety management techniques, we help dogs to learn new ways of interacting and cohabitating with one another.

Our goal is to get them back on track and living peacefully together. We use a variety of proven techniques to facilitate this process and provide the support and guidance that you and your dog need to succeed. Whether you are dealing with aggression issues or simply looking to improve your dog's social skills, we are here to help.
