Except that your reality is very different.
You find you’re avoiding the embarrassment of walking your dog, and constantly telling your dog to go lay down because you can’t hear your kids over the dog’s barking.
This is an all too common scenario. Thankfully, there is a solution! Let us help.

How Can We Help
Over the years we have developed different programs designed to fit every need and every budget.
Our In home programs are more hands on, while our day training option allows the work to be done while you are busy.
Schedule your phone consultation so we can discuss which program is right for you!
Let our Elite Team of trainers guide you on the path to meeting your goals. With our extensive experience we can give you the tools needed to be successful anywhere. Private Training is great for those who can’t get to a group class or need a little more personalized attention to achieve your goals. Private Training lessons can be used to teach manners, help with challenging behaviors or learn a new sport.
Not everyone is interested in becoming a dog trainer, or has the time to devote to weekly training sessions. Since our knowledgeable team can tackle the teaching part of the training program quickly, you can see a change in your dog sooner. At then end of the program we will teach you how to help your pup in real life settings.
These three week classes concentrate on just one set of skills for you and your dog to succeed. Join us for Recalls on the Beach at the North End in Virginia Beach or Paws N Pints at local breweries! This is another great way to continue your dogs training journey!
