Let us work with you to build a strong relationship with your dog and establish reliable behaviors you can count on.
The science of animal behavior and training has come a long way. Behaviors established with positive reinforcement are stronger and longer-lasting in nature.
We use only humane training methods based on positive reinforcement. We do not use force, intimidation, shock, or physical corrections. Instead, we teach dogs to love doing what their owners want them to do.

Our private training sessions are 1-on-1 lessons conducted in your home with you and your pup. Private training is most suited for those who want to learn with their pups to build a positive and lasting relationship.
This training arrangement is most beneficial for those who want to learn about how their furry friend works. You are keen to understand more about the behaviors and want to equip yourself with basic skills to deal with real life encounters.
Our day training program seeks to serve those who want training for their dogs, but already have their hands full with many other things. In this program, we do the heavy lifting for you.
We will train your pup while you attend to things that matter the most. We then transfer the training results at scheduled intervals during the program for you to enjoy your pup's new found skills.
Day training is conducted at our premises and includes complimentary extra 2 hours of day care after each session, should you require it.
Our home day care service is available only to clients who have completed a program with us.
Most dogs can benefit from this service as they will have the opportunity to practice skills they have learnt with a skilled trainer. The additional time spent with the trainer also serves as a refresher for the dogs, ensuring that key skills learnt previously are sharpened in a different environment.
This service will not be suitable for dogs with dog-dog reactivity.
