MISSION STATEMENT

Our mission is to prevent the needless euthanization or abandonment of dogs.  About 96 percent of the dogs that end up in shelters have not received any obedience training, according to the National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy.  We are out to change this statistic.

We provide a complete and balanced approach to training dogs and their owners using a variety of methods based on proven scientific principles. We are dedicated to optimizing the relationship, obedience and behavior of every owner/dog team we work with. The result is a deeper relationship between human and dog based on trust and respect, which in turn produces a happy and obedient dog.
