WE OFFER PRIVATE LESSONS, GROUP CLASSES & BOARD AND TRAIN OPTIONS FOR PUPPIES AND DOGS, REGARDLESS OF BREED.  


HERE IS OUR PROCESS...


1. THE EVAL...


Before beginning any program, we will evaluate your dog to determine his or her personality type, aptitude, social development, behavioral patterns and potential problems. We will then discuss your goals for your dog and recommend the best training approach. This evaluation is free of charge and there is no obligation to sign up for training.


2. DISCUSS THE PROGRAMS...


We offer three basic programs for you to learn our system. I don’t believe in passing you off to a junior instructor. I work with my clients to help them and I train the Board and Train dogs.


3. WHAT YOUR DOG WILL LEARN...


Our Foundations to Functional Curriculum covers the 5 Basic Commands (SIT, DOWN, HEEL, COME & PLACE) and House Rules (GREETINGS, GROOMING, SELF-CONTROL & FOOD).  You will have a basic understanding of Operant Conditioning & common Training Equipment used with the dogs.


4. SUPPORT BEYOND THE LESSONS...


All clients receive both our manual and access to videos which support and reinforce the lessons and provide a resource as you move through the program and beyond.  We also have a Private Facebook Group and all clients have access to me via phone/text or email.  


THAT IS HOW WE CAN GUARANTEE RESULTS...


The TOP DOG GUARANTEE is simple... We have done everything in our power to set you up for success... if you put in the work we guarantee you will get results (unless your dog suffers from underlying medical issues, which we discuss during the evaluation).


SO LET'S GET STARTED!

Private Lessons

The "Foundations to Functional" Private Lesson Program consists of 6, 1-hour Private Lessons over the span of 2-3 months. Due to the flexibility of lessons, this program can be tailored specifically to the dog and client based on information gathered in the evaluation.

Group Classes

Top Dog “Foundations to Functional” group course is our 8 week intro course and covers the basics of the system. Classes are held at various locations including our training center should weather dictate.  This course gives you everything you need to start your relationship off right! 



Board and Train

Our board and train program consists of 3 weeks where your dog will live with me, interact with my family and my dogs.  I will personally take your dog through the "Foundations to Functional" curriculum and certain dogs may complete "Free-Dog" curriculum where we focus on Off-Leash skills.
