Our Training Philosophy
We train dogs using modern scientific techniques to understand, address, and modify dog behavior. We know that behavior only exists when it is rewarded, and therefore we use positive reinforcement, and clicker training, to train dogs what we would like them to do, increasing the likelihood that the wanted behavior will happen again.
Kay Rutland, our lead dog trainer, loves helping people learn how to communicate with their furry family members. Part of what she loves doing is giving her clients the skills to train their dogs for their lifetime. With a little time and coaching, Kay can get you all on the same page, and well on your way to having a great family dog.
