Working with you in her training center or in your home, we are able to train your dog to do the things most important for YOU. We will cover all the basics of obedience training, focusing on your specific behavioral concerns. In this way Kelly creates a plan for you to find a reliable path to better enjoyment of your dog’s company.
By engaging the family in the training process, Kelly has found that owners end up learning as much, if not more than their pets.
