Would you like a dog that you can take anywhere and not be embarrassed by their behaviour?

Who is well-behaved and listens to you, even off leash with distractions?

Who is calm despite being deemed “high energy” or “anxious”?


Our down-to-earth, holistic approach to dog training provides results, and will help create the life you’ve always imagined with your dog – happy and stress-free! Unlike other dog trainers, we use a behaviour based approach instead of just obedience commands alone. Our behaviour based approach will teach your dog how to be happy, calm, and well-behaved in our human world.


Jack is doing amazing! He honestly appears to be a different dog. The groomer asked what is different about Jack as she stated he appeared calmer and well behaved.
