    So what is a family dog? In short it is a dog that is a wonderful companion and a joy to have as part of the family. It’s a dog that might be apart of huge family with lots of kids or grandkids running around or it’s a dog that calls only you family. It’s a dog that behaves and listens well to not only the adults in the family but any kids too. A family dog is a dog that can have freedom but also stays within any boundaries set. A family dog is what many of us picture in our heads when we think of the ideal dog.

    But let’s be honest, most dogs do not start out like this. Instead they chew on or steal items they shouldn’t have, they have accidents inside of the house, they have no idea what a stay is, or what the cue leave it means. They jump on you when you get home from work or even worse, on guests when they come to visit. They pull on leash and drag you along for walks. Maybe they listen to you at home but once there are any distractions and they are out in the “real world” all bets are off.  Maybe this is where you find yourself when it comes to your dog. You know what your dog can be, and you know what you want your dog to be, but how do you get there? Maybe you are just beginning the training journey or maybe you have had training with another trainer but you still find yourself running into the same problems with your dog. Don’t worry though, we will work together with you to help fix all the issues you and your dog are having.

    Our programs are customized to help you achieve the family dog you have always dreamed of. You’ll get all the TOOLS and SUPPORT you need to get everyone, including the kids, on board, your dog in check and the whole family playing for the same team! It’s fun, effective and 100% positive!  You can build a solid foundation with our Good Dog Program and then go from there or jump all in and start with our Family Dog Program. There is no better time to start, we have success with both puppies and adult dogs when it comes to our programs, and we would love to help your dog become the joyful companion you have always dreamed of.
