My training is all positive, reward based, with no use of force, fear, or intimidation. Positive training  is fun for you and your dog and builds the bond between you. Working together to learn new skills, you will become a closer team with improved communication and trust.
 
 Age appropriate vaccination or titre test records are required. No pinch collars, choke collars or flexible leashes. We limit class size  to provide safety and to give individual attention. When you enroll in a course, we hold a space for you. If you cancel less than 7 calendar days before the class, you will not receive a refund.
