We are here to help you!

Do you love your dog, but don’t ‘like’ him very much because of his annoying behavior?
Have you tried other training that just didn’t work?
Is taking your dog to the vet, the groomer, or in public a burden because of his pulling, lunging or jumping?
You wanted a companion you can enjoy as a member of the family, not a nuisance you have endure and lock away when family or friends come to visit.
Your dog is more than capable of learning how to be polite on leash or off, around company, and around distractions!
