Independence Training and "Re-Entry" Strategies


Independence Training:  Avoiding the pitfalls of too much togetherness.

Just like us, dogs prefer to be creatures of habit.  With recent events, the new norm for our dogs is to be with us ALL OF THE TIME.  This bonding time does have its benefits, but what happens to our dogs' emotional state when we eventually go back to a world where we do LEAVE them?

Join us for information, live demos and discussion on independence training and the benefits of creating alone-time for your pups.  ​

This workshop is particularly important for puppies and maturing dogs under two years of age. 

Puppy Home School (For puppies up to 1 year old)


Train from the comfort of your home.  Join a group of homeschooled puppy friends for our 5-week beginner class.  We will meet over Zoom video conference for lessons and practice once weekly. Conferences will include live demos, individual coaching, and discussion. Fun for the whole family!  The skills learned in this class will lay the foundation for a strong bond of communication with your pup.  We will play games, build skills, learn socialization techniques that will last a lifetime.    


25 Day Challenge! Games that will make you "Sexier than a Squirrel"!

$35 total for access to all games and video meet ups!

We will be providing a series of videos showing games that promote connection to you and disengagement from that ever so interesting environment. So when that pesky squirrel or bird or neighbor dog appears, it will be YOU that your dog pays attention to.  In addition to the videos we will meet once weekly online to discuss the games, provide real-time demos and answer your questions. 

Join the challenge! It will be fun for the whole family especially your pup!

"The new bond and level of understanding that was built using the skills learned in the class completely changed our guardian/companion relationship.  Instead of fear and uncertainty, he now enthusiastically offers appropriate behaviors! I still have moments of complete surprise and delight as he continues to have flashes of new confidence and discovery! "
