You Work - I Train Your Dog
Alternative to Board & Train

Here's how it works:

With our busy schedules, it’s hard to find the time to really work with your dog. Let a professional trainer help while you are away working! A bonded and insured dog trainer can come to your home twice a week to make sure your dog is the best she can be.

Instead of sending her off to a boarding facility, give your dog the opportunity to learn good behavior in her own home and neighborhood. By allowing a trained professional to come to your home during the workday to specifically train your dog and coach you along the way, you get peace of mind and well-behaved pup.

This is a great way to have the best of both worlds – have a professional train your dog and keep them in familiar surroundings. You will be given the opportunity to read over the safety policies and procedures to make you feel secure and comfortable about giving your key and leash to a professional. Follow-up reports and video from each training session along with transfer meetings with the owner and trainer reinforce what your pup has learned

You will love the results! Your dog is trained in your home while you are working! How great is that!
