There are several choices of training available.

Private in-home training provides you with as much individual assistance as you need and can be scheduled around your busy schedule.  Many  issues need to be  addressed in the home;  jumping on visitors and trying to run out the door need to be addressed in the home  environment.  Some dogs are  reactive or shy and need to start their training in the security of the home.  Sharon will design a training program that will specifically meet the needs of you and your dog.   This program is for dogs of all ages.  Problems that are addressed, but not limited to, are the following:

  • Won’t listen
  • Not house-trained
  • Won’t come when called
  • Jumps on people
  • Annoys company
  • Overly excitable
  • Nervous urinator
  • Playfully biting
  • Digs in the yard
  • Takes food off the counters              Goes in Dog Training Services secion with "Private Training sved for web
  • Climbs on the furniture
  • Destructive in the house
  • Barks too much
  • Runs out doors/gates
  • Pulls on the leash
  • Misbehaves in the car
  • Aggressive
  • Fearful

Each lesson provides the foundation for the next lesson.   It is necessary that you practice the assignments given you because it is repetition and consistency that will help you reach your goals.  This program is for dogs of all ages.

Puppy Hood 101 is a great way to start young puppies out on the right path immediately.  The new puppy parent can learn how to effectively and humanely train the puppy and avoid many common mistakes that people make.  Sharon will explain all the steps necessary to house-train the puppy, how  to handle puppy biting, how to become a leader, how to prevent problems from occurring, and basic leash training.   Puppies can begin at seven weeks.

Group classes are also available.   While private training is more comprehensive, there are instances where a group class will best  meet the client’s needs. There are a variety of classes offered ranging from Good Manners 101, a class offering basic skills, to advanced classes.  These advanced classes include the AKC Canine Good Citizen, AKC Community Canine, Variety Sports Pak, Shaping and various other fun behavior classes designed to provide your dog with advanced skills and mental stimulation.  (Not all of these classes are running at the same time.)
