Obedience Training

Calling canines of all ages, from puppies to seniors! Obedience training is essential and often key to resolving many issues. Tap into your dog's problem solving and have fun watching him/her learn. It doesn't matter whether your dog has never had any training or if he/she has had some training but still doesn't listen! In-home training sessions will address things such as:

  • Obedience commands (from puppy training to advanced obedience)
  • Walking on a loose leash
  • Coming when called
  • Listening and complying with commands
  • And so much more!

Leash Reactive Dogs

This private training program is designed for dogs who react poorly toward other dogs when on a leash. (Growling, lunging, barking, etc.) The goal of this program is to teach your dog to pay more attention to you and relax in the presence of other dogs. This program will strengthen the bond between you and your dog. Lessons are held at a variety of locations to allow for practice in the presence of other dogs.

This program is not available in the summer. It is simply too hot for the dogs to work. Under the best of circumstances, it is stressful for the dogs, and the intense desert heat and scorching sidewalks and asphalt can lead to heat stress and burns on your dog's paws. Short-nosed breeds are even more susceptible to breathing difficulties and are not able to cool down. If you walk your dog, it is recommended that you do so extremely early in the morning or late in the evening when the heat is less of an issue, and there are fewer dogs in the environment that are easier to avoid until the issue can be addressed.
