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

What to expect: We come to your home, ask you some questions about your dog and about your training goals. We then do a thorough evaluation of your dog and discuss with you what we believe would be the most beneficial program to meet your needs. The evaluation takes between 45 minutes to 1 hour to complete. The cost of the evaluation is $45 - $55, (depending on your location), and is waived if 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 call us when you are ready to begin. Either way, we are always happy to work with you and look forward to helping your dog become a well behaved member of your pack.
