Business Description: Training from man's best friend is private and professional. This means I work with your dog and your family, one-on-one in until you are ready for the distractions of everyday life, then I work with you through that. First, I start with your dog. You will be pleased while you watch me teach your dog all of the basic commands on a leash. The training is fun to watch, soft touch, and artful direction. However my training is obligated toward, which means there is a fair and just correction of the dog for bad choices. Once I get your dog doing all of the basic commands on a leash, I then turned that control over to your entire family. Now here is where you will find me very unique. When your family has mastered the basics with your dog, and I will teach you how these basic commands and principles your dog now possesses apply to day to day behaviors.You see lots of dogs walk nicely on a leash. They will also sit and stay and lay down while on a leash.This does not mean they will do any of these things without a leash.And it's certainly does not mean that your dog no longer jumps on people or chews on things or will consistently come when called without a leash.This is where all group classes and most other trainers miss it. The basic obedience is merely a base to be built on, it is not the goal,it is just a starting point. The goal is a well behaved pet, which is enjoyable to be around and travel with. This is the goal I have for all my clients, and I guarantee you can have this with your special dog.
