We Promote Ethical Dog Training:


Dogs are taught through humane interactions, without fear or pain.

  • Dogs are viewed as subjects, not objects, who are treated with patience and consideration.   

  • Dogs are encouraged to think and make choices in a safe, fun learning environment. 

  • Building a relationship with your dog requires your involvement! While it does take some time and thought, the end result is worth your efforts. We will help you understand and connect with your dog in order to make permanent behavior improvements. 

  • If you are seeking a quick-fix that takes minimal support from you and your family members, please consider another trainer!    

Dog Training By Example

Both dogs and people learn through imitation. Beginning dog trainers learn by observing experienced dog trainers. Dogs, among other dogs, learn by model as well. Yes, we train you to behave in ways that will appropriately influence your dog's mood, manners, and cooperation!

  • These methods are based upon empathic learning – without punishment, cruelty, or harsh equipment.

  • Our dog (and people!) training programs help pet owners teach their dogs to willingly cooperate, demonstrate great self control and manners, and socially interact with kindness and confidence. 

Here is an example of error-free, positive reinforcement-based, dog training being demonstrated by Peggy Moran student, Nancy, and her puppy, Jett:
