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 negatives of tugging, jerking, leash-popping, yelling and “No, No, No!”

Build on your dog’s potential. Leave the negative behind.

Consultations and Private Training

Working together as a positive team is important in resolving your pet’s issues. Whether you live locally or out of state, we can meet you via Zoom, FaceTime or Skype to discuss your dog’s problems, and how we can go about “fixing” that undesired behavior.

No set schedule. We work at your pace and schedule, whenever possible. Classes are a block of four, and the first class is usually done via Zoom, FaceTime or Skype as it is an orientation/consultation session.

And since “fixing” those problems are important, I encourage family members to join in. Team work is so important. It lessens confusion on everyone’s part, including the dog's. And when the dog understands what he or she is supposed to do, you’re headed for success, and everybody benefits.

Don’t have a problem? Having a well rounded four-legged companion is a great goal. You are welcome as well to join in learning the positive motivation approach, especially since 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 without the  trauma of yelling, jerking, tugging, hitting or 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
