Good behavior, exercise and love

0-05-210Expecting good behavior from your dog and providing him with exercise and love is essential for having a dog that is fun for everyone to be around.

While many dogs have behaviors that create family stress and frustration, We believe that every dog deserves the opportunity to rehabilitate and benefit from the training provided to the dog and its family.



All training programs are tailored to you and your dog’s specific needs

0-03-210A Family Dog offers private family dog training at your home or at our facility.

As a part of all training programs, it is suggested that owners consult with us in their home to evaluate environmental influences and assess the temperament and training needs of your dog. We help owners start right with skills and manners unique for puppies and newly adopted dogs. We know how much easier it is to start with the right goals than to deal with problems later.
