So glad you have these play days for our dogs ! Shadow had a blast🐾
These galls are awesome. They took my anxious, hyperactive puppy and taught her to be calm and sociable. We'll be back form the next level!!! Highest possible endorsement.

Want your pup to walk calmly on the leash? Then start out your walk calmly. Don’t let your dog drag you out of the front door, control thresholds and create a structured walk. Letting your dog lead the walk and then getting mad when they pull is unrealistic, be a leader and show them what you expect from them.

Have a new puppy or a dog that’s scared of the vet? Practicing these things beforehand will ensure that your next vet appointment goes smoothly! Also - don’t be afraid to take your dog into the vet (or similar places) regularly, so that not every visit results in shots / leaving mom and dad.

Some of our Basic and Puppy class dogs, before and after going through the course. We videod dogs that were some of the hardest pullers and most distracted to show that even they can drastically improve with effort and training! These dogs went from impossible to walk, to some of the best walkers in class.

Puppy obedience class recalls (come command)

These puppies are under 6 months old and recalling off of a freeze dried liver treat held right in front of their noses! Being able to recall off of distractions is very important if you want to have a great off leash dog one day. So proud of these pups and their owners for putting in the work!

If you want your puppy to grow up to be confident and not scared of new things... start socializing them as soon as possible! If they aren’t fully vaccinated yet, you can still carry them around new places. The earlier they can be exposed to these things, the better.

The key is PRAISE - give treats and love when your puppy is brave and not afraid. This will help to associate these new things with positive emotions.

Our puppy obedience classes and puppy playtimes are also fantastic ways to socialize your puppy!

All dogs are different, therefore, all dogs need individualized and personalized training approaches. What worked for your last dog may not be working for your new dog, and that’s okay. Maybe your dog doesn’t thrive without training tools like prong collars, gentle leaders and e-collars, or maybe your dog excels on just a harness. Find what works for you and stick with it, no one else can judge unless they’ve owned YOUR dog.

If you’re wondering what training tool(s) might work best for you and your pup, let us know! We specialize in finding the right training method and tool for each individual dog and we would love to help you feel confident using them.

You can join our next session of classes or reach out to request a private lesson!

Having issues with your dog’s behavior even when you feel like you’re working on those issues? When it comes to dog training, you have to look at the bigger picture. There is no quick fix - it’s all about the little things and ways you can add structure to your dog’s daily routine.

For example, is your dog constantly barking in the house? Well, what structure do they have in their daily routine? What do you ask them to do *instead* of barking? This is a great opportunity to add in place time, kennel time, active training time and, above all, consistency.

Check out our list of small things that will make a BIG difference in your dog’s behavior and in your relationship with your dog. As always, feel free to comment or message us if you have any questions!

Free feeding your dog isn’t ideal for many reasons. Your dog’s bowl of food should be down for 15 minutes max and then picked up. Even if they didn’t eat, they aren’t offered the bowl again till the next meal! Begin a feeding schedule and stick to it, and you will see many changes.

For bonus points, begin using some of your dog’s meal for training!

Puppy agility is one of the cutest classes in the world! This class is amazing for nervous puppies that need a confidence boost or crazy pups that need an energy outlet. The small, puppy-safe obstacles build their confidence, work their body & brain and strengthen their bond with their owner, all at the same time.

It’s only week one and these pups have already overcome some big fears!
