"She turned our dogs around and made our lives better by helping us train our dogs. NO leash pulling and the off leash training was amazing and I feel that the price we paid was a steal! I would have paid double for the service she provided! Simply amazing! Thank you."
Robert M with Molly & Sydney
You're struggling with your dog and thinking...
I don't know where to get started...
Your dog is jumping, barking, pulling on the leash, growling at people or other dogs, having accidents in the house and going nuts when guests come over. Taking your dog on a walk feels like a challenging or impossibly large undertaking that you avoid going on them with your dog.
It's so confusing...
There are so many different ways to train a dog and you feel like you don’t know which one is better than another or which trainer or method you should choose. There are just so many options!
Will your training work for us...
Our training teaches your dog to relax and align you and your dog’s agendas together. With these two things you and your dog want the same things together, taking the conflict our of your relationship.
Does your dog run off and not listen?
*Does your dog have a great recall until they see another dog, person, squirrel, rabbit…?
*Do you have to make sure you block the front door when you open it, so your dog doesn’t run off?
*Bring your dog for training with us, your dog will come when called and you’ll have confidence to take your dog off leash!
Are you getting dragged on walks?
* Is your dog pulling you down the street?
* Do they dart back and forth on your walks and almost trip you?
*Come to us for your dog’s training and then you can enjoy your walks because your dog is now walking nicely on a loose leash!
Is your dog hyperactive all the time?
*Is your dog hyper and super crazy, they can’t relax and you think you have to exercise them all the time?
*When you have guests over is your dog jumping all over them and underfoot?
*When you invest in dog training with us, you will amaze your guests with your dog’s new relaxed and calm behavior!

Does your you come back when called or play catch me if you can?
One challenge we hear about a lot is dogs who don’t come back when called, need to be bribed to come back, stay just out of arms reach or plays catch me if you can. Is this your dog?
Let us help and have a dog who not only comes back to you when called but checks in voluntarily and comes back enthusiastically. Miss Rio in the video used to play a lot of catch me if you can when she first arrived. Now she loves to come back to check in on her own and when we call.
Do you have trouble walking your dog on a leash?
Is your dog pulling you on walks? Zig Zagging left and right almost tripping you? Do you not walk your dog because it’s embarrassing?
Our training will help teach your dog to walk calmly and politely next to you on the walk.
Enjoy time in the neighborhood, chatting with a friend or going to the pet friendly outdoor market with your dog instead of leaving them at home!
Does your dog know how to relax?
Does your dog whine? Pace? React to a pin dropping in the room?
Most dogs we work with don’t know how to relax themselves. Relaxation feels good so we want dogs to feel better and owners to have a better relationship with their dog!
This example is Sadie, a very anxious dog who came to us with reactivity and aggressive issues. You can see how the TBTE Relaxation Triad helped her tremendously feel better about life in general.
Does your dog bark?
Does your dog bark
- at other dogs or people on walks
- out a window at people walking by
- when a package is delivered
- when guests come in the door
- just because?!
Let us help your dog learn to be calmer and not feel like they need to bark at things. Have a more peaceful time at home and away with your dog!
Do you want a dog that pays attention to you?
Does your dog ignore you? Or only listen in your home and blows your off outside?
Our training program will teach your dog to pay attention to you inside your house and outside. No more begging for your dog’s attention to listen to you!
