I provide specific private sessions at your place for you and your dog, regardless age or breed.

I meet your needs by working together on a To-Do List of the behaviors you want (or don't want)!

EVERYTHING YOU NEED: we tailor with you the training for your specific needs with your specific dog.


PUPPIES need to know basic manners and proper socialization, like sit, down, come, wait, and stay, leave it, give, leash walking, being confident in different environments. There is also some challenges like jumping, chewing, barking or counter surfing. We improve communication, practice, exercise, etc.

You can start as soon as your dog is settling in your home.

BEHAVIOR PROBLEMS? We can change most behavior issues at any age. Resource guarding, reactivity to dogs and/or people, barking, destroying, aggression, separation anxiety, crate training, house training, other pets at home issues, welcoming a new baby,

FAMILY and CHILDREN with their PET: Having a new dog? Getting your child responsible with your pet? Need of after school activity for your kids or teens? We'll learn 
how to act safely outside with your dog and at home with friends, how to read your dog, and let's have fun with tricks and games, and basic agility.



Within few sessions we can bring you back to normal life with dogs. They don’t have to be your best friends but you can manage your fear or anxiety of them, cross them in the sidewalk, and even greet them!

SENIORS PEOPLE: if you are having difficulty walking or other physical ailments, we teach you techniques which will help you to manage your dog .
