Results were almost Immediate!

Mia was a 3yo, female black lab who was a wild child, she would run away, jump on people and counter surf among other bad things. We engaged with Cyndi in June 2022 and she began training Mia 3 times weekly. : the results were almost immediate. She started to sit, lay down. to pay attention and to not jump on strangers…

What We Can and Cannot Do in Our Dog Training Program – Setting Expectations

We want to set expectations with you about what we can and cannot do in our dog training programs. Our goal is to provide professional training services, guidance, support, and feedback throughout the training process. While we cannot guarantee covering everything you want or need in a specific number of sessions or training type, we are committed to helping you improve your dog’s behavior and skills.

We cannot promise that your dog will master every skill or behave exactly as you want. Factors like their health, environment, and genetics may affect their learning and behavior. However, we can use modern positive reinforcement training methods and teach you how to effectively implement/reinforce that training. Our goal is to help you understand your dog’s behavior and communication better, making the training experience fun and enjoyable for both you and your dog.

Join us on this rewarding journey of improvement and enrichment for your beloved dog!
