We speak dog!
Most behavior problems stem from the miscommunication between dog and human. Dogs can become confused by what we're asking from them. They can get frightened, anxious, and sometimes act out. At the same time, we as dog owners get frustrated that our dogs "aren't listening".
The solution is to get everyone speaking the same language. Our methods are based on the same communication methods, voice tone, and body language that dogs follow instinctively. We teach you to speak dog - when you speak your dog's language, he or she will understand you better.
This natural and dog friendly approach develops a positive relationship and lasting emotional bond between guardian and dog based on respect and trust. There is no need for harsh punishment, nor for bribing with a constant stream of treats. Please call us to book a consultation. We hold consults on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the day\afternoon for $20. Our trainer can answer your questions and help come up with a good training plan to help you achieve your goals.
Peachy Paws School
The level you are placed in is based on your training level and your dog's level of obedience. Group classes will meet once per week in the evening. Classes are generally scheduled on a Tuesday or Thursday evening after 5:00pm. When coming to group classes, you will be accompanied by 5-7 other dog owners who are all working towards the same goal. You will grow alongside your group for 4 consecutive weeks and end in graduation on the 5th week. We hold classes every few months, so please let us know if you're interested in a group class and we will keep you updated with a starting date.

Based on whichever level you're placed in, you will meet with our trainer 1-2 times per week to focus on one-on-one training with your dog. This is a one-hour class. You and your dog will have an uninterrupted class and your pet will have the trainer's undivided attention throughout the session. During your consult with our trainer, she will recommend how many classes per week she suggests as well as give you a realistic expectation of how many classes it will take for you to achieve your goal.
Boot Camp is the quickest way to complete your dog's training. This is our most popular option. You will complete a consultation with our trainer where you can discuss your goals. During boot camp, you will drop your pet off with our trainer. She will keep your pup for a discussed amount of weeks to complete all of the training at once. When your pet is done, you will have a one-hour "exit lesson" to go over maintaining your dog's new knowledge. You will schedule your boot camp drop off on a Monday morning and pick up on Saturday.

Information on different levels:
Puppy classes are designed for puppies up to 6 months old. The goals we set out to accomplish during puppy classes are getting familiar to their name, coming when called, sit, lay down, and leash work. Some of the other skills your pup will be introduced to in the class will be appropriate interactions, potty basic for the littles, and eliminating biting.
Level One - Basic Obedience
Level one is designed for dogs over the age of 6 months. During this course, your dog will learn skills such as sit, hold, down, heel, leave-it, and leash work. Some other skills that will be introduced are appropriate interactions, excitement management, and place. If you have completed our puppy class, you will receive a discount on level one classes.
Level Two: Intermediate Obedience
Level two is designed for dogs who have completed level one. During this level, we will work on refining level one's skills, holding for an extended period of time, begin off leash basics, begin rally obedience maneuvers.
Level Three: Advanced Obedience
This is the last level of our obedience training. Your dog will work on Rally obedience maneuvers, off leash work, and place. We don't offer group classes for this level as it is a more specific obedience. Message us for more information about level three classes.
