We’ve been improving the lives of dogs and owners for over 42+ years. No matter what kind of behavior issues your dog may be showing, we have the experience and knowledge to provide you with the right solution. As proven leaders in our field, we have helped over 5400+ dogs and counting. Our programs provide you with everything you need to achieve responsiveness, mutual respect, and most importantly, an enhanced quality of life for you and your dog without the use of treats, clickers, pinch collars and shock (e-collars). – Linda Konrad, Behavior Trainer/ Evaluator
Our mission is to unleash a new capacity for learning and communication between each dog and owner that strengthens the bonds of commitment and understanding between themselves, their families, and their community.
Founded in 1977, we’ve trained and cared for thousands of dogs and even more people – in the greater Washington, Arizona and Texas areas. Our practical, unique curriculum is based on the concepts of positive rewards and clear communication known as the 3-T’s of training “TONE-TIMING-TECHNIQUE”. Whether your dog needs training, more exercise, behavior modification, or simply a decent bath, our award-winning work is completely focused on helping almost any dog become a better, more enjoyable family pet. Teaching dogs is really about teaching people. And most people aren’t aware of all the new, really positive dog training methods available today. Our job is to arm you with the latest, best training practices, then help you apply them to your pet. Yet even with all advances in positive training, it still takes a lot of skill, good timing, and practice to train a dog. So we work with you through one-on-one or in small classes, to provide you with hands-on coaching and real-world methods to help you transform your pet into a loving, polite, and safe member of your household.
Classes are convenient – offered in 1 hour sessions once a week, anywhere in the Greater Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. They are also insightful, creative, and effective. Over eighty percent of our students pass their Puppy S.T.A.R. and Canine Good Citizen evaluation (think of them as SAT’s for dogs) on the first try. Remembering 80% of dog training is training the owner.
