Dog Training Services

We offer several dog training programs customized for your dog’s individual personality and your family’s unique goals. After your initial in-home consultation, our trainers will recommend one of our customized dog training services to meet both your and your dog’s needs.

What is our Train As You Live® Method?

What Is Our Train As You Live® Method?

The Train as you Live® method looks at the whole life of the family unit to figure out needed behaviors for the dog. A family with 5 children that enjoy camping or boating likely would need a different set of behaviors than someone who lives on 10th-floor studio apartment alone with her dog. By first concentrating your unique goals, we can then develop a list of useful, custom commands for your family. Our Train as you Live® was created to be part of healthy, everyday life with your dog, well after training.

This method looks at the human-dog relationship not as Alpha/Beta, but as two species co-existing with each other where they each understand and accept the other’s needs. By first concentrating your unique goals and studying your dog’s individual personality, we can then develop a list of useful, custom commands for your entire family.

What can you do after we Train As You Live® ?

  • Do you want your dog to join you on a hike off leash? Our trainers can teach your dog to walk alongside you, completely off leash.
  • Does your family have energetic, young children who are always excited to see (and pull on) their furry friends? Our trainers can teach your dog to play alongside your kids without playing on top of them.
  • Would you like to make a trip to the brewery with man’s best drinking buddy? We offer training that teaches your dog to stay calm and seated in busy settings.
  • Do you like to travel by car (or boat?). We can teach your dog travel etiquette to ride along safely and securely.
