What Our Customers Have to Say About Us

“We contacted Dog Coach about our Lab puppy. He has been a wonderful, laid back pup, and fairly easy to train. We called Dog Coach because at 7 months, our puppy had reached 80 lbs. We were walking him on a harness and when he noticed another dog, would lay down and wait for the dog. It was becoming difficult to get him to move! He was starting to jump up at people upon greeting and he would occasionally nip at our kids when playing. Dog Coach introduced the prong collar, which I was hesitant about but it helped us correct unwanted behaviors with minimal force unlike trying to do it with a harness.

Dog Coach trains dog owners and families to set limits and establish confident and calm environments for our dogs. They were fabulous! Our dog is not jumping, no longer lies down in the road waiting for other dogs, and as a household, we now know how to manage him. We continue to practice and hone the techniques. Thank you, Dog Coach, you are terrific!!!”

Dog Training Tip: How to Practice Being Calm on Walks

When we allow our dogs to bark at cars and trucks, other seemingly small behavior issues can turn into bigger issues. Balanced dog training at Dog Coach is all about teaching your dog your expectations for better behavior. As you consistently correct undesirable behavior, your dog begins learning your expectations. To start training calm walks, keep your walks short and distractions to a minimum so your dog can more easily focus on your leadership. Walk in your yard or avoid busy areas. Increase distractions just enough so that your corrections keep you in control. Practice daily.
