Professional Dog Training
We work with dogs of all ages, breeds and temperaments. Dog training can take place in the privacy of your own home, and, for best results, includes every member of your household. Fees are based on the specific needs of your dog, which are assessed during our free, in-home consultation
Current training services
Our most popular service! Training can happen anytime between 8 weeks to 6 months of age, which is the most critical development period for your dog. Our one-on-one, two session Puppy Kindergarten program will teach you and your family what to expect from, and how to deal with the issues and behaviors your puppy will demonstrate during this crucial time. At the same time, we feel it is important to respect your puppy and allow him to enjoy "puppyhood". Our program teaches strategies for housebreaking, feeding, play time, reprimanding, outdoor/indoor activities, socialization, pack formation, and dominance exercises. We also work on correcting common puppy behaviors, such as nipping, biting, chewing, and any other situations that come about that are unique to your puppy
Training can begin at 6 months of age. Our program teaches your dog essential commands, including sit, stay, down, come, heel and wait. Time is also spent teaching your dog to walk like a lady or gentleman on a leash, without pulling or stopping. Once he passes his final exam, your dog will graduate with a diploma from Doggy Be Good! Basic Obedience is usually 4 to 5 sessions, but may be longer if need be. Our fee is assessed upon our free consultation
Correcting undesirable behaviors, such as aggression problems, can make a world of difference in your home. Often times, negative behaviors can be corrected with dominance exercises and positive reinforcement. Behavior modification will be based upon the needs of your dog. Fees will be assessed accordingly
