wag your way into your dog's heart

We carry a wide range of products for training your dog, including interactive toys, crates and fabulous treats. Please visit our online store to view our top products.





We can train your dog and help you train your puppy to get optimal results.

The benefit of using positive reinforcement is that it really works! It also avoids any negative side effects that can be associated with the traditional techniques such as choke collars, pinch collars, e-collars and leash corrections. Training using positive reinforcement is FUN for you and your dog! It also can help you build a loving,trusting, and gentle relationship with your dog.

We offer personalized behavior counseling and modification, utilizing positive reinforcement techniques as solutions for behavior problems.
