Every dog deserves his day

All training begins with an assessment of what your needs are, who your dog is and how you both learn.  We believe that positive reinforcement is the best way for humans and animals to learn, however, we also know that the way that we each process information is highly individual – so your training should be as well.

  •  A one time evaluation/training session to ensure you are on the right track?  You bet!
  • How about a training session that helps identify triggers causing undesirable behaviors and a path for creating new/more desirable behaviors?  Sure!
  • Looking for periodic check -ins with added skills?  We can do that too!

Expecting good behavior from your dog and providing him with exercise and love is essential for having a dog that is fun for everyone to be around. While many dogs have behaviors that create family stress and frustration, We believe that every dog deserves the opportunity to rehabilitate and benefit from the training provided to the dog and its family.




The human­-animal bond stands without equal in its ability to heal lives, calm spirits and generally improve our well being.


We help owners start right with skills and manners unique for puppies and newly adopted dogs. We know how much easier it is to start with the right goals than to deal with problems later.

A Family Dog works with behavior problems of all kinds. When a dog has developed behavior issues that have just become too difficult to deal with – contact us! We know success depends on having a good plan of action and a way to consistently implement it.
