Peace of mind- our goal for you

We are 100% positive-based, so you can rest easy knowing you are going to learn at each and every training session.

You and your 8 week-16 week old puppy will train a half hour a day, five days/week, with trainer Karin in her front yard, via zoom, or out safely learning about the joys of our world.

Schedule an initial consult, 60 minutes long, today, for Karin to take a full history of your dog, formulate a management and training plan, beginning training if time allows.

Karin is awesome.

She started to train our 3 month old sheepadoodle and it was an awesome experience. I must say that we had tried a couple of trainers before her, and our dog did not respond very well to them. Karin on the other hand had our dog dancing on her fingers.

Karin is very well versed on the behavior of dogs. Puppies are not the easiest to train because they are all over the place but Karin made sure that he got a hang of all the basic commands. When i first took him out on a leash it was a disaster, thanks to Karin he is so much better with a leash (we can now take him out for walks). He is also very good at responding to our commands over a long distance.

The training is expensive, but totally worth it if you want to make sure your puppy has the right foundation. I would recommend Karin without reservation.
