TRAINING

The trainers below are committed to positive reinforcement training & fear-free/force-free methods. This is important to us as we’ve had families return dogs to us having used aversive training methods that ended up causing anxiety & aggression.

It is very important to your dog & the relationship you’re building with them to understand how prong, choke & shock collars, physical punishment & lack of proper socialization in young puppies can cause lasting damage & can increase the potential of behavioral issues.

BEHAVIORAL VETS

Often owners wait too long to utilize medication for anxious or destructive behaviors in their pets. What can appear to be aggression or reactivity, is often anxiety or fear, or even possibly pain.

The vets below can help you find the best way to help your pets by recommending behavioral modification & medications if needed.
