Struggling To Get Your Dog To Listen Around Distractions?

  • Your dog doesn't listen outside of your house
  • You're familiar with sore arms or leash burned hands as part of your walks
  • You've had heart stopping experiences of our dog dashing out the door
  • You're embarrassed to have guests come over to your home and visit
  • You're worried about what's around the corner on your walks
  • Chaos ensues every time someone walks by the house
It’s time to end the chaos, stress, and embarrassment and regain peace and harmony in your relationship with your dog instead.

All The Tools You How We Can Help You Get A Well Trained Dog

Let’s face it - just like no two people have the exact same personality, no two households have the exact same day to day habits and routines.  That’s why many standardized training plans often don’t work.  And that’s why our first approach is to help you build a customized plan that makes sense for you and your household.

"My family enjoys our puppy so much more because of this."

"Suzanne's puppy training class is great! She is clearly very dedicated to her program, her knowledge of animal obedience and nutrition is incredible.

We had no clue what to do with our new puppy and she helped us tame him. Suzanne was critical in teaching our puppy how to behave and live healthy from the beginning. My family enjoys our puppy so much more because of this. I'm sure our puppy is having a better time too!

I would highly recommend this class to anyone. Will definitely register for the next course."
