Is your dog’s behavior a problem?

let us help restore order to chaos!

Our mission is to help you and your dog live cooperatively under one roof!

At IT’S YOUR DOG School for Dogs, we’ve been training unruly, impulsive dogs to be great family members since 2004. This means that we’ve seen a lot! And while every situation is unique, our primary objectives always remain the same….

  • Establish a clear line of communication between you and your dog
  • Encourage a fear-free environment in which a dog can learn to make sound behavioral choices
  • Rely upon the principles of LIMA (least intrusive, minimally aversive) training techniques to achieve desired goals
