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 the application form below, our team will meet with you and your dog VIRTUALLY or in person to assess how we can best help the most effectively and cost efficiently.  This will include a comprehensive ~ 30-45 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….including children. 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 strive to make this experience as easy and efficient as possible.

Why an application form?  First and foremost, we have to make sure your dog is healthy so they can learn best (and if not healthy can guide you to get proper help) and that we’re all a good fit for learning. A dog is another ‘being’ in your household and we all have to be committed to putting in a reasonable amount of time to have a successfully trained pet and parents/family who in a sense are trained well too! This form will tell us a good bit about your pet, your home environment, how they currently behave and most importantly, in writing, what you want to accomplish. So please fill out today and text us to say it’s filled out and on the way: 828.234.3145

PUPPY PAW CAMP (6 TO 8 WEEK PROGRAM)
We can train your dog in less than 6 weeks if we all work together and complete the program.  In other words, your family has to agree to focus on the training for a 6 week period so you can enjoy their good behavior for years to come.

  • Designed for puppies starting as young as 6 weeks, it’s never too early to start because Tim’s methods are force and harm free. This means training is anxiety free for your puppy.
  • Basics of good behavior are covered: come, sit, stay, walking by your side on and off leash, and potty training. Additionally, if you have some special needs like nipping or chewing on furniture.
  • Program begins with 1 training session to teach your dog and you what we call, “the basics of communication”.
  • WEEK AT PUPPY PALACE: Approximately 1 to 2 weeks later with a 6 day/5 night stay at the Puppy Palace where Tim and his team will work a great deal of time one-on-one with your dog. This includes
    • Training as agreed
    • Training materials in writing and video(s) for your easy learning and reference
    • Massage therapy- this is not a spa massage but one to make sure your pet doesn’t have any knots or sore spots so they can be at optimal learning. For example, if they have a knot in a hind leg, it is hard for them to have full motion so Tim will massage and relieve it.
    • Customized meals and premium treats- they’ll be very VERY active for their time with us so they’ll need more and better food than normal.
    • Air-conditioned/heated sleeping quarters – they’ll sleep in grand style and learn how to spend the evening properly.
    • YOU CAN VISIT while they’re at camp. If at all possible, we want you to come mid-week and do a session with your dog and Tim. This way you can really learn the protocols.
  • MANDATORY IN-HOME SESSION WITHIN 5 DAYS AFTER CAMP.  This is critical so Tim can ‘transfer and transition’ what your dog learned at camp into your home with you and your family. 
  • For the 3 weeks after your above in home session, we’ll do however many sessions we need to in order to assure your dog has been trained properly. 
  • All during the training period you will have access to Tim via email, text or call for on the spot help.  This is a really important benefit.  We want to be able to work with you “in the moment” if you are having problems or questions.
  • Access to private VIP Facebook page with training tips and videos of your dog while they’re at camp.

A WEEK WITH TIM ON THE ROAD AT OUR NATIONS CAPITOL

This is an extraordinary opportunity for any dog at any age with almost any problems. Tim drives and spends a week a month in Washington, DC visiting clients and will take 1 dog with him from Sunday night to Friday evening or Saturday morning.  This gives Tim the opportunity to see how your dog behaves 24/7 so he can correct and train for very special results.  They’ll go visit the monuments, eat at restaurants, play at dog parks, socialize with friends and even visit a famous furniture store.

Prior to the visit, Tim will have a session if your dog has not been with us before.  Shortly after returning home, it will be critical for Tim to do a session in your home to transfer and transition all your dog has learned with him.

$1250 – First Time Clients

$950 – Returning Clients
