We Have Arrived at a New Age...

An evolution in dog training built on communication, trust, and care.

Free Assessment For Serious Clients
After completion of an evaluation form, our team will meet with you and your dog VIRTUALLY to assess your current relationship in your pet’s environment. This will include a comprehensive ~ 30 minute discussion to gage communication skills, trust, and the health of your pet.  By doing so, we can design a training program that is right for everyone in your household. Our state-of-the-art training facility is fitted with the most advanced technology that gives us the ability to meet in-person or via video conferencing. We believe that communication begins with you, and we strive to make this experience as easy and efficient as possible.

In-Person or Virtual: Which is better?
The old adage that it’s “either one or the other” is no longer applicable in a world that has given us so much in terms of technology. You may prefer to jump in the car for an in-person session, send your dog to Paw Camp, or remain in the comfort of your own home with virtual classes, but what is most amazing is how in today’s world they can all work in conjunction.  This is why we encourage our clients to use the full range of options we have to offer. To get you started, we have prepared a list of our most popular programs.

SELECTING JUST THE RIGHT PUPPY/DOG
  • Have Tim help you select just the right new companion.
  • There’s more to it than it sounds. A puppy might not be the best choice or it might be perfect for your needs. Maybe an older, already mostly trained rescue is just right. This is a big decision. Tim can help you make a thoughtful decision that can give you and a deserving pet years of happiness together.
