Capitol Area Dog Training and Behavior Services

dogdishwasherHow’s your summer going? I hope you’re having fun with your family; both two and four-footed! While we’ve still got time before the kids head back to school, it’s a great time to get together for some fun, low-pressure dog training. It can make a BIG difference in your family’s life. Nothing brings more pleasure than seeing the difference it can make in your dogs’ life, too!

Do you have a new puppy who needs some basics, or does your adult dog need a “tune-up”? Now‘s a great time to get started, and the best time to teach him what YOU want him to know! 

Capitol Area Dog Training and Behavior Consulting offers personalized dog training and behavior modification programs that give you practical, efficient and effective solutions, taught without pain or punishment. All private programs begin with an initial consultation, to learn more about your goals and your dogs’ challenges and all sessions are held in your home at convenient times that best fit your schedule.

Does your dog bark excessively, jump up on guests at the door, steal food off the counter or run out the door when he gets the chance, and not come back when you call? Do you have a shy, fearful dog who hides when family members or visitors come?

Do you have a shy or fearful dog who panics when you leave the house, who lunges toward other dogs while walking on the leash, or over-reacts around strangers and children?

Help is available!

Capitol Area Dog Training and Behavior Consulting offers:

  • Personalized Training and Behavior Modification plans for solving complex behavioral issues. Shy and fearful dogs are my specialty!
  • Dog 101/New Puppy 101 Plans: 6-8 weekly, in-home coaching sessions that cover all the basics, for those new canine family members who need to learn the rules or older dogs who need a “tune-up”.
  • Day Training, concentrated sessions for your dog when you just don’t have time to train
  • Single, 2-hour, problem-solving sessions available to solve those common problems (like walking without pulling, coming when called, and potty training)
  • New pet adoption/New puppy selection counseling and temperament testing
  • AKC Canine Good Citizen and Star Puppy training and testing.
  • Treibball classes, coaching and workshops available.
  • Email or phone consultations.
