Are you struggling to find the time to train your dog or does your dog have more serious problems such as anxiety or aggression? Our behaviorist will come to your home and train your dog for you while you work, take care of the kids, or just take a much needed break! All you need to do is maintain the training that she has already completed. Day training is very convenient and easy for you, and – more importantly – exceptionally effective for your dog. Because your dog is being trained by a professional, most problems can be resolved in 3 – 4 weeks. This is an excellent choice for behavior problems and basic manners alike.
Thank you Kristina for helping me with my extremely unruly young Lab, your ‘homework’ turned him into a love!”

What We Can Help With
We can help you and your puppy get started off right! We offer help with common puppy concerns such as house-training, mouthing or nipping, and chewing. Busy schedule? Worried about socializing your puppy? We’ll do it for you! We can expose your puppy in a positive and safe manner to a variety of people, animals, situations and locations. This is an excellent way to reduce the likelihood of behavior problems developing later on in life.
We’ll teach your dog how to be a polite, well-behaved member of the family and your community. Each package is tailored to your specific goals, but common behaviors include polite greetings, walking well on leash, sit, down, stay, come, drop it, leave it, and wait at the door. Having a well-trained dog improves their quality of life as well as yours.
Do you have more serious concerns? Is your dog guarding food, barking at strangers or lunging at other dogs? Behavior modification conducted by a professional is much more effective than trying to do it alone. Let our expertise and experience help you fix problems such as growling, snapping, biting, running away, fear and anxiety, on-leash aggression, barking, and digging.
Not sure if it’s a big enough problem to schedule an appointment? Please contact us and we’d be happy to advise you – intervening early often makes behavior modification much more effective!
