Welcome!

As a trainer, nothing means more to me than helping a dog who has previously been deemed unlovable find a truly permanent home. Whether you just adopted a bundle of energy from the local shelter or your sweet puppy has grown up to be more of a terror than the beloved couch potato that you had hoped for, let me help you AND your dog get the second chance on life that they deserve with no harsh techniques required!

Whether you are looking for private training for your reactive dog or a positive reinforcement group class for your new puppy, I can help! I offer services to fit every need and budget throughout the Mid Ohio Valley Area, including Marietta ,OH; Belpre, OH; Parkersburg, WV; Williamstown, WV and more!

Group classes are taught in real world locations, and during training your dog learns more than sit & stay, they learn to be a respectful member of your family with skills like waiting at doorways and asking politely for attention.  There are no breed restrictions, like some classes, and we work hard to find the good boy in every dog.
