Puppy Training & Care Questions

Have a question on a certain topic?  Not ready to move forward with a professional trainer at this time?  We have compiled a list of helpful videos to some of the most frequently asked questions about training, health and maintenance.

It's very important to make sure the recommendations you get are from knowledgable, experienced, balanced trainers!  There are many trainers that are in the public's eye that can and do cause a lot of confusion for both the dogs and their owners.  


We believe in using balanced training methods.  We have done extensive research to find the best real life trainers to help you and your dog(s).  We personally use these techniques with our own dogs and only recommend the very best trainers that we feel will help you create a healthy, balanced relationship with your pup.



What is Balanced training?  Why is all-positive training bad?  Find out here:

One of the primary issues that we see with our clients is that they don't understand about the mentality of the pack animal/ dogs.  Having a clear understanding and being able to communicate properly with your new pup will go a long way toward creating that balanced relationship that we all crave with our dogs.


Leerburg is one of the most well known training programs in the world.  Luckily, with today's technology, we have access to their training programs from the comfort of our homes.  Your puppy from 8 weeks to 12 months is an affordable and thorough puppy program that we urge each new puppy family to invest in before you bring your puppy home.  It will pay dividends in the relationship outcome with your new fur baby!
