Behavior Consulting and Training

With private training, we teach and coach you to train your dog. Working together, we discuss how dogs learn, the "why" behind behaviors, communicating with your canine, and positive reinforcement techniques, while making it fun for everyone to set goals and reach them.

Private training is conducted in-person either in your home or virtually. Single lessons and packages are available.

Professional and Positive Results

From puppies to problematic pooches, we're here to help you and your best friend live a harmonious life together.


Set up your puppy for a lifetime of success! We can help with everything from puppy proofing before the puppy comes home to house training, crate training, and age appropriate manners and skills. 

Barking Dog
Reactivity and Fear

Does your dog bark and lunge when he sees other dogs or when people come to your home?  We can help you understand why your dog behaves this way and get you started on more peaceful interactions.  We will show you how to influence your dog's underlying emotional state so that reactions are much more appropriate and less stressful for both of you. Reactivity requires a minimum of a six session package.

Welcoming home a newly adopted dog is an exciting time. Our trainers have years of experience working and living with dogs adopted from animal shelters and breed rescue groups, and are familiar with the common issues. We can help you set up your home to ensure that you and your new dog are set up for success and have a smooth transition.

Ready to Get Started?

We recently welcomed Liz into our home to teach us how to teach our French Bulldog. Her knowledge & teaching techniques were phenomenal. I would highly recommend her services to anybody looking for help with their dog. Her services have made a huge impact in our lives with our Frenchie.
