Evaluations and private lessons will be set up on saturday and sundays by appointment only. 

 All Dogs/puppies must have an evaluation with me before joining class as well as up to date vaccines. Please check on facebook for updates or canceled classes. I post a weekly event for class. This will be posted as an event on facebook. I use a 4 foot terrain weaver slip leash in training. I have them available for anyone that wants one for $20 only for dogs in training, you can use ones that are available in class. Dogs or pups with my pack that end up with high aggression issues the price will be slightly higher at $40 in training class. The classes are there for a reason please use them. I want all my dogs in the social class but if your dog from the pack did not get proper training and end up with a high level of aggression it will start off with private lessons or training class.

Social Class every saturday from 9 to 11 am. Advanced Class every saturday from 1 to 3. Training Class every sunday from 9 to 11.

I believe in challenging the dogs. The video above shows the mule rolling while the class got very excited. As a service dog social trainer I believe in testing and teaching the dog no matter what is happening around them the only thing that matters is what the owner needs from them. Their owner is their job nothing else matters. In order to get that kind of targeting you have to put them in situations like this to teach them to only target the owner not the new and strange animal playing while  they are working. 

Trick training

I am a behaviorist dog trainer. I specialize in german shepherds but all breeds are welcome into the classses with an evaluation. I like to do different things with my dogs.  I have a covered agility course in my dog park for training. I have also tried search and rescue which I still enjoy once in awhile. And I have also done some herding. I like to do different things with the dogs just for the enjoyment of how much they enjoy learning new things. Im not into training the perfect dog. Im into training a dog that fits into your family's lifestyle. Everyone has different things they accept in behavior in their dog or not accept. As a trainer my job is to help you gain the respect and loyalty of your dog. I do not believe in taking a dog from its family and training it, then giving it back. I am completely against this kind of training. You are the dog's pack. He will not learn to respect his pack by someone else taking him from his home and training him, all that will happen is he will come home and within a few hours to a few days will go back to the same bad behavior. I have worked with people that are fearful of dogs to people that just need a few ideas. Dogs are extremely intelligent you just have to figure out what your dog is missing from you so he can grow to his full potential as your beloved pet. I will work with people that have been bitten by dogs that just cant get over their fear. As a dog trainer I work from my home. I feel taking the dog from his territory to begin training is very important, it is neutral territory that can make it easier for the dog to learn. I show you a few things to try at home. You would be surprise at how simple it can be to gain your dog's respect. Please do not contact me for me to train your dog. I teach you how to train your dog. Im a strong believer in CGC training. Which stands for Canine Good Citizen. I like to help train a dog that you can take out in public and enjoy your dog at your side. I have started a CGC Star puppy class program. This class is 7 sessions once per week approximately one hour per session again this depends on the dogs in the class. 
In the videos below keep in mind the timing for some of the test is not correct just because it would make the video too long. The dogs have all passed the test and the video is a demonstration just to give you an idea of what the test is like.
