Dog Training Programs

We have incredible and dynamic dog training programs to meet your goals with your dog or puppy. Programs are essential in truly understanding your dog and how they are incredibly sensitive and highly emotional beings. You'll learn how our emotions impact them and how to attract the things you do want in your relationship with your dog. Multiple sessions are important for your dog's well being and your relationship with them as it gives your dog time to learn the material. Training is a life long journey and we have programs to support you along that journey. Emotional change takes some time (I mean just look at us humans!). Having the right type of support means actually reaching your goals or reaching them in a less stressful and fun way. In addition to traditional training we offer energetic spiritual healing modalities for your dogs if they struggle with trauma and severe behavioral issues.

Get Started Dog Training with a Powerful  2hr Lesson

What makes this 2hr lesson so powerful? We focus on 3 of the most important things that make a dramatic impact in yours and your dog's life that most dog trainers ignore

1

2

Relaxation training to bring the mind down and reset the dog's parasympathetic nervous system.  The more your dog masters their nervous system the safer, calmer and more in control they feel which means they listen better and safer to walk or socialize. Our techniques are very similar to reiki, yoga, mediation and animal communication.

3

Mindset training for you and your dog! Mindset is key in helping your dog feel confident. Understand how to help your dog in challenging situations. Mindset training for you means you'll immediately feel good and optimistic about where you are and the journey ahead.

Lastly, understand how to make quantum leaps in your training by focusing on the world we can't see but makes the biggest difference in training - the quantum world. Your thoughts, feelings, beliefs, energy, purpose in life, lessons you're here to learn from your dog are all major components to having the happiest life with your dog.

TESTIMONIALS

“For fear of being yelled at by the people she barked at or her getting into a fight with another dog, we stopped taking Bella to public places. This was excruciating for me because I wanted a dog to join me in my outdoor activities: hiking, swimming etc. After trying to solve her problem myself and even hiring another trainer, Bella’s reactivity showed no improvement and I had accepted the fact that Bella had to be a “home dog”.


By the time we officially finished the Well Mannered Dog Program, Bella was a different dog in a GREAT way. Overall, she is more relaxed. She still has her boxer exuberance, but the frantic energy is almost gone. I now take Bella hiking off leash and to the park on a regular basis–no more hiding for us! She acclimates to new people in a fraction of the time it used to take and doesn’t panic in new situations, she looks to us for direction. We even went downtown the other day and she didn’t bark at anyone!! She spends far less time staring out the window for things to bark at and more time relaxing and playing with her toys. Her anxiety has decreased so much, we do not need to crate her when we are not home (she has destroyed furniture in the past). I cannot recommend Rhonda enough. Her skills/knowledge far exceeded our expectations. She has helped us achieve what I honestly didn’t think was possible–I have a social dog again!”

“When we found out we had a first child on the way we decided at that moment that we needed to get the behavior of our two boxers under control ASAP. Both are great dogs personality-wise, but neither listened terribly well, particularly when distracted/fixated on a squirrel, a ball, etc. Our 1 year old boxer was also an incredible bundle of energy (big surprise).


We now have two dogs who are so much more easy to walk. We can have people come over to visit without chaos ensuing. We can eat dinner while the dogs stay in place until we’re finished. We can walk/play off leash knowing that we can get the dogs to come back reliably. The list of new freedoms goes on and on. Our investment with Rhonda was well worth it – what’s amazing is that both dogs still have their same old personalities, quirks and boxer-mischief inclinations, but we’re able to get them to relax and calm down when we need them to.”
