We know that you are tired of your dog pulling on the leash, running off instead of coming to you, and jumping up on everyone. We have a plan to help you. Enroll in our results based, pain free, introductory dog training class, and your dog will learn to sit and stay, walk nicely on leash, come when you call, and lie down and relax. You will be shown how to use these behaviors in real life situations, with and without treats. Your dog will learn to socialize with other dogs calmly and sit to say hello to people. You will receive customized solutions to help with the behavior problems you are having at home. The result will be a well trained dog that listens consistently, even when distracted by other things.
