Puppy Kindergarten (8 weeks to 6 months)
In 35 years as a professional trainer, Sam has learned that every dog is an individual with a unique personality and temperament. Because of this, we believe that every dog deserves individual and personalized attention, training, and care. Our private in-home training allows your pet to receive the individual attention they deserve in an environment which they are comfortable. We work with all breeds, of any age or temperament, and are fully committed to seeing you and your pet succeed.
We will help you lay the foundation for a friendly, well-mannered adult dog. To be effective, socialization and basic behavior shaping should begin as soon as you bring your puppy home. Puppy Kindergarten is 100% reward-based training. We will work with you on the behaviors and activities that most people experience with new puppies including...

A major benefit of our personalized training is that we help to accomplish goals that YOU set. Do want your dog to come to you when called? Do you want your dog to heel at your side on command? Maybe you simply need your dog to remain calm when there is a knock at the door or not jump up on visitors. Our training plans are 100% reward-based and regardless of your specific needs, we will commit to achieving your goals with your pet(s).

We work with aggressive dogs
As a dog owner, one of the most difficult, frustrating, and intimidating (sometimes downright scary) things to deal with is an aggressive dog. Whether it's toward humans or other dogs, living with an aggressive pet can be difficult - especially when the aggression is unpredictable. We know you love your pet and we want to help him or her to overcome these obstacles and become a loving, well-socialized companion.
In over 35 years of training dogs professionally, Sam has worked with dogs of all sizes, breeds, and temperaments - including the extremely aggressive. He has learned that there is not a one-size-fits-all solution to handling these dogs. Every single dog is an individual with unique personalities, quirks, and underlying reasons for aggression. Because of this, training methods can vary in certain situations in order to be effective. Before beginning a training program, Sam will cover ALL possible options and outcomes and allow you to decide what is best for your pet.
