Behavior modification programs are tailored to the individual dog or cat presenting behavior problems. Puppy training and obedience training is also tailored to the individual pet.   

Having an untrained pet is stressful and in many cases expensive.  Think about how you feel coming home to urine or feces on the floor, your furniture chewed, or being afraid your pet will bite you or others.                                    

Starting your puppy off right is critical to the long term behavior of your pet.   You start training your puppy the day you bring him or her home.  So why not do it properly.  My puppy training program starts at eight weeks of age and focuses on the difficulties pet owners experience with their new puppy such as chewing, housebreaking, jumping, nipping, etc.  In addition, I help you build a solid obedience foundation, working with you and your puppy together in order to develop the best relationship possible.  This program will also focus on socialization with dogs and people in public once the puppy has
completed its vaccination program from the veterinarian.
