Meet Lark & Hazel

These gorgeous girls came to us after going through another local trainer’s program. This trainer is very e-collar heavy, and has been known to place e-collars on puppies! This method created negative associations to people in Lark & Hazel’s minds, and to certain environments (such as those including other dogs). In fact, when Lark & Hazel first came to us, they were afraid of people and other dogs, and ran off one time when they were buzzed with the e-collar. They also chased squirrels, and bayed at them when they went up a tree!

Since their stay with us, we’ve been able to get them over their fear of other dogs, and eliminated their separation anxiety. They now leave squirrels alone, and their parents can take them biking on the trails without an e-collar!

Educating the Family

Our main focus is helping families understand and be a part of the dog training process. When we first meet, we talk together about what the family wants their dog to learn. Every week, we share videos of the dog’s training, so everyone can see how it’s going. In our weekly meetings, we teach the family all about the training methods, show them what the dog has learned, and practice together to make sure everyone understands. This way, the whole family can have fun and succeed in learning with their dog!

There’s a weekly group class where families and dogs can join to keep getting help and support. Learning doesn’t stop after one time, so we make sure you can practice and get better. We promise to be here anytime you need help, even after your training. And if you’re busy or need extra support, we offer daycare and boarding services to keep up with your dog’s training.
