Training for dogs of all ages

Backed by the knowledge and experience of our trainers, our tool box is full of every training tool available to find the perfect match for you and your dog . All options work on basic obedience, manners, restraint, focus and socialization to help your favorite canine become a true home ambassador.

  • Even though it is called dog training, we call it people training for dogs
  • Training provides the opportunity to open a line of communication between owner and dog
  • Training is mutually beneficial, for the dog and the owner
  • Training is a way of life, for the rest of your life. Your dog will LOVE you even more for it
  • Our integrative training technique utilizes a variety of training tools that address all of the behaviors a dog exhibits.
  • Every dog and every owner is different, so we customize our training to fit the individual needs of each of our clients.

Help your good dog become great!

  • Loose Leash Walking – no more lunging and reacting!
  • Sitting or lying down politely – no more jumping up on people!
  • Staying on a “place” – no more rushing the door, or counter surfing when you aren’t looking!
  • Polite behavior – even when guests arrive!
  • Socially appropriate behavior around other dogs, or people, in public

Note: No amount of training or work sessions by a professional will supersede what you teach your dog in everyday life. For this reason, a dog’s behavior and conduct is a responsibility that ultimately rests with the owner.

We want to thank you for the training you provided Bella. It exceeded our expectations. The results were amazing. Bella continues to learn and improve every day. Thanks again!

Dennis and Donna

Unbelievably talented and effective training program. Elisa was excellent in training our Australian Shepard named Tehya to be a wonderful companion. Also knowing that the training staff is around when we take her to Club Pooche for daycare is very reassuring, and a valuable benefit. Thanks so much…to a fantastic team at Club Pooche!
