Looking for a pup who walks peacefully, responds to you, and charms the neighbors with good manners? Whether hectic schedules, expenses, or your dog's personality held you back, we've got your back to jumpstart progress today.
Our approach is straightforward: Meet with Kristen, our Head Trainer, for a personalized 1-on-1 session tailored to your pet's needs. Let's get your pet on the path to paw-some behavior today!
Kristen has a degree in animal behavior and over 15 years of professional dog training experience. She is a Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner, an American Kennel Club Good Citizen Evaluator, and a member of the United Kennel Club SPOT program. Kristen is also a member of the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (IAABC). Her specialties are training family dogs, problem-solving, and competition training. When not working with her local 4H organization, you can find Kristen exploring with her golden retriever, Quill.
Once you pick a plan, you can schedule your first training session!
During this session, we’ll do a little planning with you to understand and outline our goals. Kristen will then coach you through a hands-on activity or two – personalized for you and your dog’s life stage and needs.
After this session, you will be able to practice independently based on the exercises and guidance provided. For more advanced development, you can always book more sessions.
Our philosophy is to give you the best help you can in bite-sized pieces. Our team will help you with reward-based training strategies that are personalized for you and your pup, not just for the “average” dog.
Here’s an example of what one recent pet parent accomplished for a dog who loved pulling on the leash.
Session 1: Loose leash walking foundations for moving together
Session 2: Spacing out rewards and navigating the environment
Session 3: Practice with controlled distractions (food and pretend litter)
Session 4: Problem-solving details for people in the park encounters
Dr. Hilary Jones graduated from Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine and completed a small animal rotating internship at Fifth Avenue Veterinary Specialist in NYC, now BluePearl Downtown. During her time as a primary care and emergency clinician in New York City, she was inspired to develop a televet and tele-training platform to connect pet parents with convenient, caring resources whenever they need them.
In the meantime, here’s an activity to get you started. This game teaches your dog that it’s his job to pay attention. We want him to be able to check in on his own, not only when you call him. We can start this in the house, then the yard, and then on a walk.
