Hi Jen, My little smarty pants is just a dream. I just LOVE her so much! She now sits and stays about 15′ away while I put her meal in place and then tell her to come. She is perfect. On walks, every once in awhile I stop and ask her to sit which she does. The bell thing by the doggy door we are still working on, but she has already done it 2 or 3 times on her own. Every morning she lets me k… Read more
Hi Jen, Scooter is fabulous. That dog has become a wonder dog, I mean it. Everywhere I go with him, which is pretty much everywhere I go, people ooh and ah about what a well-behaved dog he is. Seriously. We still have a few little issues to work through, but it’s really just amazing, Jen, and we owe it all to you!!! I really appreciated all your help, support, and flexibility. I’d be deligh… Read more
Hi Jen, Bentley has responded wonderfully to his loose leash training. He sticks by my side in walking and jogging. I’m slowly expanding the length and area of our walks. What a great improvement. Never thought I would see this day. Thanks!
I was wondering if you could recommend a good veterinarian to snip little Ozzy in April and take care of all his other health needs. I am less inclined to stay with the Doc we have been using since the rabies vaccination incident. UPDATE: Ozzy’s training is going really well. He seems sooooo much more relaxed around the house and comes to us almost without fail. We are still trying to come up … Read more
Hi Jen, How are you? Hoping all is great. I can’t believe the difference in George. My gosh! As you know, we almost gave him up. Never thought we could turn him around. There’s no doubt he has responded beautifully to your training techniques. We don’t have to fight him at the door and he actually listens to us now! You are absolutely wonderful and we sincerely thank you!
Hi Jen, It was good to hear from you. Honey is doing well. The nipping has really diminished and she seems less afraid of all the construction noise going on. Since the girls are back in school, she gets nice long walks every morning (not to mention, some peace and quiet!). Overall, a big improvement. Thanks so much for your help. Please feel free to stop by if you are ever in the area.
Hi Jen! Roxy is wonderful! She is exceptionally good-it is almost unbelievable how good she is. She responds to me very well-has tested me a few times but no problem getting her to comply. She will often leave the cats alone. The few times that she has gone after them, she has responded immediately to “leave it”. I am so proud of her and so grateful to you for all you have done. She is… Read more
Jen’s bywords are PATIENCE and CONSISTENCY. She models them very well. When dealing with you, she offers hints and cues, never criticism. With the pet, she does not tolerate misbehavior, but rewards INSTANTLY the expected behavior. I got my puppy at two months of age. At three months, I was ready to give up completely. I had no idea how to cope with him and had never anticipated that handling a… Read more
Hi Jennifer, Thanks for your help with Chip! It was a pleasure to meet and work with you. We will miss you (Sammy will too!) A different plumber showed up today and he agreed to work with me to meet Chip. Chip managed to stay down for a moment (I kept the front door closed while I opened the gate and brought him in); I put him back on down, gave the guy treats, and let Chip go. For once, Ch… Read more
Hi Jen, We had a great day yesterday! We were passed by five runners and four walkers with dogs. Baxter was eight for nine in behaving-no lunging or barking. The only time he barked was at another dog who barked at him first, but he quickly stopped. I thought that was pretty great. What I didn’t write in my e-mail yesterday was that the eight for nine was with Riley on the walk as well. Whe… Read more

We also want to help you have the dog of your dreams: well-mannered, confident, obedient, and a joy to be around.
We make training fun and use dog-friendly methods that engage your dog’s natural temperament, abilities, and drives. When training is rewarding, dogs want to participate. They also learn more quickly and retain more, which is training at its best.
Every dog is a unique individual. Some are shy, some are overly energetic, some are challenging. Our trainers spend time to get to know you and your dog. All training plans take into consideration such factors as your dog’s temperament, breed, age, sex, general health, and history.
This information is then used to create a customized training plan that addresses all of your dog’s obedience and behavioral concerns. Techniques and tools can be adapted to suit individuals or situations as needed. Even the youngest members of the family can be involved!
All of our trainers have been hand-picked for their unique abilities, education, experience, and areas of expertise. They are dedicated dog professionals who go above and beyond to see that their client’s dogs obtain their training objectives, whether the focus is obedience and manners, puppy concerns, or challenging behavioral issues.
