Private: One-on-One

A private, one-on-one session is the best way for you and your dog to learn the skills to develop a trusting and respectful relationship for life.

"It's simple but not easy."

A dog is one of only a few animals that has the capacity to develop a deep, trusting relationship with his human companion.  He is loyal and dependent on you for his care. Take the time to learn how to communicate effectively with your dog. In return, you will have a dog that is happy and responsive to you.

Starting off right:  How to build a positive relationship with your puppy or dog.  House Training, appropriate play, the walk, come when called, are a few examples of topics covered.
