Dog Training Services
Whether you need help with a behavior problem or just want to review the basics, we’ve got you covered.
Dog training is hard, but we make it easy! We provide done-for-you day training sessions in your home to give your dog stimulation, exercise, and a whole new skill set while you work (or play). Get the well-behaved dog of your dreams with one of our day training packages.
If your dog needs to practice focus and self-control in the face of distractions, ask us about Control Unleashed. It’s a small group class perfect for shy, reactive, or out-of-control dogs who might benefit from a controlled group environment.
Teach your dog to follow their nose with our in-person or virtual Nose Work classes. Nose Work is a fun, exciting dog sport that anyone can join. It’s a fantastic outlet for extra energy in active dogs and builds confidence in shy or fearful dogs. Dogs and owners of almost any age or ability are welcome.
Our canine clients give us two paws up!
Here’s what their humans have to say:
Patrice has an intuitive sense with dogs – she’s amazing to watch as she works with them. Her example makes it comfortable for you as the novice trainer to ‘do the right thing’ when training your dog at home. She will go out of her way to help you resolve any issue you are having with your dog. In addition to working with your dog in front of you so you can then take over, she will research the issue from her vast dog training resources and provide you with written information that will really help you deal with your problem.
We recommend her very highly– Cricket, our 7 month old puppy, loved her too!
I was hesitant about the progress we’d make and how prepared my husband and I would feel to continue with the training. Not only have we seen great progress in Maisey’s behavior but in our toolbox and confidence in continued growth with Maisey.
Patrice did a phenomenal job of tailoring the program to Maisey and Hazel. When working on our greeting routine she was able to pivot to a settle command when Hazel added a lot of amped up energy during greetings. Our friends have commented on how much growth they’ve seen in both dogs when they come over!
I now enjoy walking Maisey! Seeing her offer loose leash behaviors, think twice before bolting to a tree, and both of us enjoy exploring the neighborhood has been so encouraging. We have great steps to work on to continue our skills and feel like we’re really investing in Maisey’s long term success.
Another huge benefit is having both my husband and I involved. Patrice does a great job keeping both of us involved, giving us space to ask questions, and truly enable us to handle real life situations (not just during training sessions!). I was so overwhelmed with all of the dog training advise and guidance out there that I needed a trusted professional that could provide specific guidance for my dogs, Patrice is it!
Truly one of the best investments we could have made for us and our girls. We have lots of long term goals for our girls and see Patrice as a long term partner in our journey!
So, we got a really good start with the six lessons from Patrice. And, the icing on the cake: We have continued to feel welcome to talk to Patrice again whenever our puppy gets creative and new problems arise. Thanks very much, Patrice!
