Our mission is to help you build the most fun, stress-free and rewarding relationship with your furry best friend.

Whether you are a new puppy owner, just adopted a canine companion, or your adult pup needs a skills refresher, we are here to help!
As Featured On:
Puppies go trough a socialization period from about 3 up to 16 weeks of age. This time is extremely important in your puppy’s development because it will shape their future personality and how they react to things in their environment. Gently exposing your puppy to a wide variety of people, places, and situations during this early age makes a huge difference in their life.
This service aims to set your growing puppy up for success for life at home. We’ll work on potty training and crate training, teaching appropriate chewing behaviors, alone time, recall skills, mastering basic obedience commands, and much much more.
Adult Dog Training
This service is ideal for newly-adopted dogs and dogs who need a refresher on their basic obedience skills. We’ll teach your dog to listen and pay attention to you, master polite behaviors — both inside and out in public, and build a closer relationship through two-way communication between you and your dog.
Dog Training & Support For Expecting Families: Our Doggy Doula℠ Service
We offer private support for expecting families in order to help them prepare their dog for the changes that are bound to occur. We offer positive, practical, and fun solutions that will help integrate and include the family dog in the new household dynamic and routine once the baby arrives. Our goal is to help ease your transition from dog parents to baby parents with a dog.
Dog Training & Support For Families With A Toddler
We offer additional support for families with babies who are soon to be, or already are, crawling or walking. This period of unpredictability can be stressful for the family dog, as the toddler becomes increasingly mobile, vocal, and curious to experience their new world, especially with their hands and their mouths. Our goal is to offer insight and proactive options for some of the common challenges families with dogs experience during this time.
