Customized for your family – Guaranteed!
One – on – one training!
With the Walk Doctor program, I will show you how to train your dog to walk politely next to you without marking, pulling, lagging or exhibiting any other unacceptable behaviors. In the first session you will learn the ins and outs of the structured walk, including the concepts of thresholds and auto-sits, and the importance of the handler’s body language and energy. By establishing leadership with proper tools, techniques and our training philosophy, you will learn how to create an unspoken connection with your dog so you can finally enjoy a peaceful walk. At the end of the session, we will put all of this into action with a walk around your neighborhood.
In the second session, you will apply what you and your dog have learned to the “real world” at high distraction areas (Greenlake Park, pet stores, etc.). You will learn the common mistakes folks make with the walk, such as waiting too late to give the dog information, and how to avoid them.

Imagine your dog listening to you every time. Not jumping on anyone, always walking right next to you during walks, not chewing or barking like crazy… When it comes to training, what you put into it is what you get out of it. We teach the Sit, Down, Place, and Come (recall) commands, but more than that, we empower you with structure and boundaries to help strengthen you and your dog’s relationship. Private Training will benefit you a great deal if you’re committed to seeing results!
Our unique approach to dog training is geared more towards addressing the fundamental state of mind of your dog, rather than strictly focusing on creating rehearsed behaviors. In other words, we are much more concerned with creating a happy, healthy, balanced dog than creating a dog that simply knows a few obedience commands.
Many dog behavior problems that we fix in this program are general bratty behaviors like: counter surfing, jumping, crate training, pulling on the leash, chewing, nipping, over-excited energy, and the like. This program is perfect for a dog that isn’t dealing with major behavioral issues and really just needs a bit of a tune up.
