Training Philosophy

Just like medicine and technology, canine training has evolved over the last 30 years. When training your dog, we want our training time to be a fun and exciting experience for your dog. 

We do not believe in using fear, intimidation, or pain as part of our dog training methods. In order to get the best response out of your dog, we whole-heartedly believe training should be a rewarding and pleasant activity for everyone involved. Simply put, we will teach you how you can prevent, manage, and change unwanted behaviours, all while still keeping your dogs spirit alive.
