Dogs are often misunderstood as pets with alterior motifs who need a “dominant”, stern, and tough owner. Well, those days are gone! Our training methods will prove that the essentials to have a happy, responsive, and mentally healthy dog are mutual understanding and communication. In other words, we communicate with dogs in a way they will understand, not how we want them to understand.
We pride ourselves on using only positive reinforcement techniques to teach dogs good problem-solving skills, develop healthy coping mechanisms, and to modify problematic behaviors. Parents will learn how to teach their pup both fun and critical commands smoothly & effortlessly, through rewards and play.
Starting at $80 per lesson
Each course meets once a week for 50-minutes of training, a 5-minute Q&A, and a 5-minute recap of the following week’s expectations.
Resource Guarders (only for dogs who exhibit mild warnings)
Leash Reactivity (for dogs with no history of redirection behaviors)
- Fearful of dogs
- Fearful of people
- Desensitization to fast movements (from children)
New city dwellers fearful of loud noises and fast movements (i.e. construction, buses, skateboards, bikes)
Dogs fearful of certain household objects (i.e. baths, crates, leashes, vacuums)
Leash Biting / Jumping
We treat each dog as an individual, so no one dog will be trained the same way. We’ll have a consultation session to identify triggers for their behavior(s), reaction times, motivations, and all possible options for addressing behaviors prior to establishing a modification plan (discounted video consultations available upon request for those outside of NYC). After our consultation, we offer two lesson options:
See Ya Later! (Pup and trainer alone)*
Sessions will be 1-hour one-on-one with the trainer and the pup needing the training. The trainer will be able to target certain behaviors quickly, and shape them to how they see fit. Aside from detailed summaries, we then teach you everything we worked on during the previous lesson.
*Subject to pet’s behavior.
Let's Do This! (Parents, pup and trainer)**
We guide you every step of the way. We don’t just teach you what to teach. We show you how to modify your movements and handling so that you’re speaking “dog” to the fullest extent possible.
**Extra fee per session.
Regardless of which program you choose, we’ll send you a detailed summary of every session. At the end of each week, you’ll receive a detailed training plan to follow, so that you’re able to consistently apply the material to your everyday routine. We’ll be checking in too!
Please contact us for Program Rates:
4 sessions per week over 3-week course

ADDITIONAL SERVICE INFORMATION
There is no money-back or training guarantee due to factors out of the trainer’s control (i.e environmental, owner consistency, medical factors, etc.) for any training services. If you don’t see results after the completed sessions, we will offer a complimentary 2-week post-training period (one session per week) — we believe in our training this much.
Additional rates apply if programs are requested during evening hours.
Bites where dogs or puppies have caused bruising but no open wounds may be considered. For all cases, if available, we request pictures of injuries prior to consultation.
We cannot offer services to a puppy or dog under any of the following circumstances:
Extensive bite history (i.e. one bite that resulted in stitches, multiple bites that resulted in deep puncture wounds, bites where the dog wouldn’t release).
If we cannot identify appropriate discomfort/warning signals, or if the dog reacts without warning before, during, or after the consultation.
