Dog Training


No shock, choke or prong collars! No leash jerking, popping or “hanging.” Positive motivation & reinforcement only! 

What Our Clients Say

Everyone wants a well-mannered dog. It’s a realistic goal. Fortunately, humans are moving beyond the negative and training smarter with actual positive training.

Build on your dog’s potential and leave the negative behind.

Consultations and Private Training

Working together as a positive team is important and a "must" in resolving your dog's issues. Whether you live locally or out of state, your consultation, orientation or lesson can be done via Zoom, FaceTime or Skype. So if you are in California, Florida or just down the road, you won't miss out on helping your furry companion.

No set schedule. Lessons are at your pace and schedule, whenever possible. Classes are set as a block of four, and fees are based on distance (physical) and time. 

And let's get everyone involved, since “fixing” those problems you and your dog have created are important, I encourage family members to join in, as well. Team work is important. It lessens confusion on everyone’s part, including the dog's, and when your dog understands what hit is supposed to do, everyone (two-legged and four) will be headed for success. Everybody benefits.

Don’t have a problem? Just want to get your pup or new dog off to a good start?

Learning positive training techniques will make a world of difference to you new four-legged companion. It’s a foundation that can last a life time.

Ty is now more relaxed and focused during his professional life as a therapy dog of renown.

To have an outgoing, obedient and happy puppy or adult dog, training must be done without the  trauma of yelling, jerking, tugging, hitting or any kind of intimidation.

Sydney, Barb & Misty

Sydney was adopted through Sheltie Rescue and arrived at my house afraid of everything and everyone. He was very sweet and loving but never properly socialized. Fran gave me the tools and techniques I needed to help him gain confidence in himself and the world around him.  Barb Corle, Oxford, NJ
