House Training

Most clients report that accidents are greatly reduced or gone within the first few days of using our house-training system.


Most puppies won’t be ready for basic dog training until they’re a bit older, but we can start with puppy on helping them understand core obedience behavior such as sit, lie down, stay, leave it, come, drop it, wait and loose leash walking.


When speaking about manners we are talking about jumping, chewing, nipping, biting, stealing, whining, and barking. Every puppy is different, and we’ll work with you on finding the best way to overcome these issues.
