Dog Training Services

All of our programs will help you with some of the biggest things that families get frustrated about.  Jumping, pulling on the leash, stealing objects, chewing, play biting, barking, coming when they’re called… These things will soon be problems of the past!

We have a training option for everyone, with the biggest difference between our programs being how much time we spend together AND how much time we spend with your dog 1-on-1. 

The more time we have with your dog, the farther along they get in less time, and the less work it is for you! What could be better?

Some of our programs also offer long term support, so that you can rest easy knowing we’re always here for you! Now that’s some peace of mind!

              What does life look like if nothing changes? Or what if it gets WORSE?!                       Get in touch and let’s talk… we’re here to listen!

The Good Dog Program

 

walker

You know why you have a dog, why you wanted one in the first place.  “It’ll be fun!” you thought.  “Dogs are awesome!” they all say.  “They’re so cute!” your friends sing… until the cute dog jumps all over them!

Then you have to grab the dog as they try to escape out the door (or chase them all over) and get dragged down the street on your morning walks.

Not nearly as much fun as you expected, is it?

Fortunately, those problems won’t be sticking around!  That cuteness can actually be enjoyed all the time when your dog behaves better!

This program is perfect for families who want their dogs to listen more around the house.  Walk nicely on a leash, get off of things (and people) when you need them to, and just generally calm down and stop with the selective hearing.

Here are just a few of the Good Dog features: 

  • 4 Lessons (in your home!)

  • 1 Field Trip Lesson (to work on your dog’s listening skills in public)

  • 2 Group Classes (to practice around other families like you)

  • Unlimited Training Video Access

  • 1 Year of Follow Up Support (we’re here anytime you have questions!)

You’d love to be involved in the day-to-day part of training your dog, but life is super crazy! We totally get it… So why not let us give you some help with that?

We’ll come to pick up your dog for training time (1-on-1 with Melissa) for 3 separate days after your first lesson, and bring them home to you with some more SKILLS!

Having that time with us during the initial training will save you tons of time and effort,  so we can really push your pooch to be BETTER!

This program is perfect for families who want to be involved in training but would also really appreciate saving time and having better results.

And you’ll get a huge bonus – polishing days with us that you can use anytime in the future if you and your doggo need a little refresher on anything at all. 

Here are just a few of the Great Dog Features:

  • 3 Days of 1-on-1 Training for your dog with Melissa

  • 6 Lessons (in your home!)

  • 1 Field Trip Lesson (to work on your dog’s listening skills in public)

The Awesome Dog Program
Services__element307

You want to know that everything you need, from now on, is 100% covered, no matter what.

You want results, and you want them to last? We’ve got you.

Want your dog to listen off leash? We’ll do it.

Need your dog to be awesome, instead of a crazy maniac?       We’re totally on it!

 

This program is for the family that wants the absolute best training experience possible. Your dog will spend more time with us so the training is even faster and easier for you!

More time with us means that your dog will learn more, too. They’ll be able to listen even when there are a lot of things going on (like at the park, when you have a party, or anytime your dog currently acts like you don’t exist). 

They’ll also come back when you call them if they get out, and listen around the house without having to physically be near them, like to get them off the couch or away from the front door when you have company coming in!

This program includes the ultimate in long-term support for your peace of mind, too. Unlimited lessons at your house (which we can also use if you want some help during a party or some other event!), unlimited commands (teach new things when you want to!), and TWO EXTRA 1-on-1 days of training for your dog with Melissa. 

Here are just a few of the Awesome Dog features:

  • 7 Days of 1-on-1 Training for your dog with Melissa

  • UNLIMITED Lessons (in your home!)

  • 1 Field Trip Lesson (to work on your dog’s listening skills in public)

  • UNLIMITED Group Classes (to practice around other families like you)

  • Unlimited Training Video Access + Personalized Lesson Notes Videos

  • Lifetime Support Guarantee – Unlimited lessons + unlimited commands + 2 days of refresher training for your dog.

The Brave Dog Program

Some dogs have a little trouble feeling completely certain about themselves and everything that goes on around them. They may be nervous by nature, struggle with anxieties or insecurities, and THAT may be part of why they’re having trouble listening to you or are behaving poorly!

The lessons in this program are broken down into smaller amounts of time so it’s more fun and far less stressful for your timid dog, and these shorter lessons are simply perfect for puppies in need of training, too!

This program is perfect for families with those dogs that would be happier with a lot more confidence, AND better listening skills (so you’re happier too!).

Here are a few of the Brave Dog features:

  • 10 “Mini” lessons in your home
  • Unlimited Training Video Access
  • 1 Year of Follow Up Support (we’re here anytime you have questions!)
  • BONUS: You’re welcome to attend up to 5 Group Classes (to practice around other families like you)
