Training

We believe training strengthens the human canine relationship through effective communication, understanding, and quality time spent together.

Jumpy / Mouthy Behavior

Jumpy/Mouthy (JM) dogs are adolescent or adult dogs who have an energetic, playful, and outgoing personality. These dogs energetically jump up, put theirs mouths on people (usually people's arms and legs), and may even grab at clothing and/or the leash.

Unlike biting, jumpy mouthy behavior is NOT performed with the intent to do harm.

Reactive Dogs Training

A reactive dog is a dog that gets worked up (lunges, barks, growls, etc.) when it sees a stimuli. The stimuli could be another dog, but it could also be bicycles or strangers. A reactive dog is not a bad dog, they just need a little more guidance.
