In-Home Dog and Puppy Training
We provide in-home dog and puppy training to suit your needs and your schedule.
We know how hard it is to give your dog or puppy the exercise, mental stimulation and training they need. Most of us don't have big back yards. We live in high rise apartments, condos and row-houses. And we're busy!
We will coach you conveniently in your home or, depending on the issue, we can do the training for you while you are out or on vacation, transferring the skills to you at the end. We address a wide range of obedience and behavior concerns and we work to alleviate common fears and aggression.
Based on Capitol Hill, we train using positive reinforcement. This means we use food, toys, praise and other rewards to motivate your dog and shape behavior. We never use painful equipment, force or intimidation of any kind.
Dog training is an unregulated profession with no licensing requirements. Literally anyone can say they are a dog trainer. So it is important to consider the educational background of any trainer you choose.
Our trainer, Toni Clarke, CTC VSA-CDT, is certified, expert and insured, and the techniques she uses are endorsed by the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behaviorists and The American Society for the Protection of Companion Animals and they are supported by the latest scientific research.
