The Family Package is designed to help you formalize house rules and teach manners and lifestyle skills.

Families are complicated. The main job of a dog owner, whether the dog is new or has been in the home for awhile, is to build confidence and comfort with their environment. We’ll work on building skills such as door greetings, “stay”, “leave it”, loose leash walking, along with some problem behaviors such as barking and jumping. The goals it to give the entire family the skills and give your dog polite people manners.

The Family Package is designed to help you formalize house rules and teach lifestyle skills. We’ll ask a lot of questions, make training plans, and help you start off easy then add difficulty as your dog succeeds with each skill. We want strong, confident dogs who can comfortably live in your home. This package is ideal for families welcoming new members We’ll help everyone integrate peacefully.
