The Proper Pup

This is our most popular program that is a board and train for 10 days of intensive training while your dog stays in our trainers home Monday through Friday. On Saturday morning, Lara will bring your dog home to begin your first in home appointment to cover everything your dog has learned during those 5 days. You will then spend your weekend practicing with your dog and building on the structure and foundation Lara has created. 

On Monday morning, you will bring your pup back to us and we will work through any kinks you may have had over the weekend. On a Wednesday, Lara will bring your pup back home and work with you in your home for however long you need! 

Your dog will come home with a better foundation to work through their emotions, whether it be reactivity, fear or anxiety. 

Let us help you have enjoyable walks together! Let us do the difficult work; all you need to do is maintain it after they go home. We give you the knowledge and tools to prevent regression as your relationship grows stronger. In 10 days we are your dog's therapist and guide so they can be a proper pup inside and outside the home!

The Amazing Pup

This is our unlimited program that includes EVERYTHING you need to get the amazing pup that strangers on the street will compliment about how well behaved your dog is.

This is program is typically 21-31 days with a possibility of an extended stay depending upon their progress. Your dog will stay with us Monday-Friday for their first 10 days. During each weekend you will have simple homework so you are part of the training process This will give you and your dog the best results and help you and your dog adapt to the new learned structure and skills that Lara has taught.

After each weekend with you, your dog will return on that following Monday where you will drop them at our home so Lara can begin where your pup left off and review your homework so Lara has a better idea of what your dog needs more focus on.

We want to provide you with the best results in resetting your relationship with your pup inside and outside of the home.

All our programs work at your dog's pace, but this program gives us the most time to work on building a solid foundation and improved behavior. Your dog will get to work on real-world distractions to prepare them to be confident, calm and balanced on and OFF leash. This is the only program that we guarantee off-leash reliability where you have a piece of mind while hiking your dog off leash or just need an easier way to communicate with your dog without having to use a leash or panic and raise your voice.
