HOW DO YOU KNOW if your dog (or you) need training?

So often, dog owners are the last to realize they should ask for help because they think they can do it on their own.  Dogs are complicated creatures & it helps to have a professional explain their nuances, mindset, and motivations. 

Do any of the following describe you or someone you know?

  • Your dog won't come when you call him.

  • He ignores you.

  • He always jumps on your guests but they say they don't mind, so you don't think of it as a problem.

  • He barks a lot, but you've gotten used to it & your neighbors haven't complained.

  • He may even have an occasional "accident," but you've learned to accommodate it by tiling your floors or placing piddle pads in strategic paces.

  • He pulls on his leash, so to manage it, you're using a choke, prong, or shock collar.

  • You know your dog has problems, but he's too old to train.
