Certified Dog Training & Behavior Professionals

Serving Bucks and Montgomery County, PA

Your dog is your best friend.  Even more than your best friend, he is family but sometimes his behavior frustrates or even worries you.  You worry about him jumping on the kids’ friends or scratching Grandma.  You’re frustrated with his excess energy because can’t take him on walks because he pulls, barks and chases animals. 

When your dog joined the family, you pictured snuggling together on the couch and long walks in the park but reality just is not matching up to your dreams.  But it can get better!  

Our all-inclusive dog training programs are the solution to your doggie woes.  Whether you want to be involved in the process with private in home dog training or your busy work and activity schedule is better suited to our board and train programs, you’ll have a happy, calm and well behaved dog in just a few weeks.

“Highly recommended! You won’t be sorry getting your dog training here. Our two puppies have come a long way in such a short period of time. Mike and Jamie are great! Easily reachable and you can tell they just love what they do! Seriously, can’t say enough good things about our experience!”

We offer two excellent options for your dog training needs.  Both types of programs will address teaching the basic manners and obedience your dog or puppy needs to be a great listener and include lessons for problem solving your dog’s specifc trouble behaviors whether that’s jumping, barking, pulling on leash or aggression


Board and train is ideal for the busy family or busy owner who doesn’t have time every day to train their dog.  We do the foundational training during your dog’s stay in our home and show you how to easily maintain and build on the training your dog received. 

Private lessons are a great way to be involved in every step of the progress.  During private in home lessons, we not only show your dog how to behave but we teach you how to train and live with your dog every day.
