“Oliver came out of the bathroom with that look that means he stole something out of the trash. I cued him to drop and he dropped a razor blade right into my hand. Thank you for teaching me these life saving skills.”

Ryan Waterman, Springfield Oregon

“Debbie’s teaching style, expertise, and problem solving ideas are so thorough, success is the only option! I am so grateful for all the fun I have been able to have with my 3-time-failed rescue dog because of Debbie.

And now, my 4.5 month old puppy has just graduated his first class too and we can hardly wait for our next class to begin.

Debbie’s classes delivers valuable and consise training information.”

Meg Garbutt, Eugene Oregon

“Today I am very thankful for you, Debbie. This Thanksgiving we opened our home to 3 dogs so their parents could travel.  I am so proud of BonBon!  She is absolutely the most “well-mannered” of the group!!!  She is a calming force in the chaos & that would not be true without your help.  Thank you for your patience in training me to guide her.” 

Rhonda Winkle, Eugene Oregon

On behalf of Remmy, we want to thank you for such a great class last night.  Since Richard is deeply into training opportunities, I foresee you in our lives for some time!”

Susan, Richard and Remmy, EUGENE OREGON

How do cancelations work?

Its easy! You have 2 ways to cancel. One is to call or e-mail us and we will do it for you.  The second is through your online hub portal.  Cancel anytime and finish off what you have paid for.

What kind of training do you offer

We believe all training can be conducted without intimidation, pain, or fear.  Clients are encouraged to use any rewards their dog loves (food, toys, play, social contact, etc.) and are driven to obtain.

In addition, we go beyond teaching behaviors and teach the concepts your dog is missing (calmness, self-control, disengagement etc.), and we do it all with games.

How do I know it will work?

Success is dependent upon the human part of the team.  It is for people willing to:
• take action,
• make changes to what they are presently doing,
• come to class,
• watch the videos, use their handouts, and play the games. 

If that is you, sign up, and you will succeed.

How much time does this take each day?

Most games are 3 minutes daily with a maximum 5 games each week.  That is a 15 minutes a day of training.
