We use humane and modern training methods only. Our clients are dog lovers just like us, who want to build a trusting relationship with their dogs.

Make a Change Today!

Dog’s have a mind of their own, and what’s on their mind might not be what’s on yours.  Owning a dog is not always easy, but it can be with a little help. We will help you! 


Whether you have an old dog with bad habits or a new dog who needs an education, every dog needs manners! We cover the basics, and beyond.


Aggression is the most stressful issue an owner can face. Let’s work together to change your dog’s behavior for the better and make them a safer companion.


Start off on the right foot. Set your new puppy up for success to have that perfect adult dog. We cover house-training, socialization, and manners plus.


Complicated behavioral issues such as anxiety and fear can be helped using modern behavioral modification techniques.


We use effective, clear, humane, proven methods. Your dog will WANT to work for you because they love you, not because they fear you. It works!

Cat Behavior

Cats are family too! We work with cats on behavior issues, and training. Using positive reinforcement training, let’s work together to help your kitty.


She has a great communication style with pets and owners and her recommendations for our dog worked like a charm.  Within a week, after incorporating some of Gia’s suggestions into our daily routines at home (which were effortless and took little to no time), our dog’s behavior had been powerfully impacted.
