About Dog Training for Owners

   Our dog training experience dates back to 1984, working with protection, security, and K9 partners of Man-Dog Patrol Teams. Over the years we've sculpted our training principles into the most effective and efficient techniques suitable for training dogs of all walks of life. We also broadened our scope of training and services. Since we were already volunteering on our personal time at hospitals, schools and libraries with a therapy dog team, we obtained authorization to evaluate and certify Pet Partners Therapy Dogs to ensure a smooth process for those interested in therapy dog training and certification.

   Training working dogs is not our only focus. If you're an owner who wants a solid family companion, we specialize in helping you shape your dog into a well-rounded and well-mannered social companion that is receptive to learning from you. And, since all dogs and owners are different, our experience in a wide range of applications enables us to choose the techniques and methods that are appropriate for the goals you have for you and your best friend.

   Depending upon your needs, we can work with you and your buddy one-on-one via our Phase Training program, you can drop your pal off for Day Training or you can enroll him or her in a Board-and-Train Boot Camp.

   We are also knowledgeable of the many training tools available today, which is paramount to proper training, as the incorrect application of a training tool not only results in inefficient training, it can also create problems, exacerbate existing problem behaviors, and be detrimental to the bond you have with your pal. If there's one thing to take away from our website, it's this - training tools should NEVER be used to punish a dog. Regardless of the tool being used at the moment, a training tool should be used simply to get a dog's attention. Once you have his/her attention, it is then up to YOU to clearly communicate to the dog in a way it clearly understands what it is you are asking of it.

   To help us determine the most efficient training method and style for you and your best friend, our initial consultation takes into consideration a variety of factors because, believe it or not, even the type of food your dog eats can play a key role in his or her learning ability and can contribute to his or her mannerisms, energy level and personality.

   Over the years, we've developed different and exciting methods we can apply to help you achieve success in your training. We've also created tips, tricks and techniques that can help just about any dog owner. We can even train you remotely depending upon your particular needs.
