Get started by giving us a call! We are happy to discuss your concerns and will set up an appointment at a time convenient for you

After a thorough evaluation of your dog you will receive a customized training program. You will have the opportunity to discuss your training goals and any problems or concerns you are having. The evaluation takes 45 minutes to one hour to complete. We come to your home, ask you some questions, work with your dog a bit, and give you a detailed recommendation. The cost of the evaluation is $45 - $55, (depending on your location), and is 100% refunded when you sign up with us (within two weeks of the evaluation).


Let us know when you're ready to begin

You can get started right away by setting up your first lesson at your evaluation, or you can sleep on it and phone us when you are ready. There will be absolutely no pressure to decide... we do not use "hard" sales tactics... we prefer to only work with clients who truly want the training! Whatever your decision, we will be happy to work with you and your dog when you are ready to begin.
