If you do nothing else!

Get your pup off to a strong start through Puppy Foundation training. There is a window of opportunity where your puppy will benefit from training that teaches them how to learn and you will learn how to communicate in a manner that your dog will understand! The window eventually closes as the puppy ages so don't wait too long.

Group or individual dog training options offered:

Outdoor Nature Excursions - Individual or Group

The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness. - John Muir -

People and dogs who exercise look and feel better, however, exercising together does more than solo exercise because it helps build that all important canine / human relationship. While your dog is releasing pent up energy (that is the root of many behavioral issues) they are also satisfying a primitive drive to use their nose to investigate nature and thrive on the mental stimulation that the outdoor provides. Exercising and relaxing together as a team, in nature, is a vital ingredient to a balanced dog (and human).
