Dog Training in University City : Tailored To Your Dog's Needs
Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. So do their needs.
It is CRITICAL to understand your dog's needs before starting any kind of training. We have a specialized team in University City with unique experience that will properly assess your dog and develop the right plan for you.
Your dog may need to be taught obedience. We call this "Manners".
Or your dog may need help with deeper-lying behavioral issues such as anxiety or aggressiveness. We call this "Mind".
What Do You Need Help With?
Address the root cause of your dog’s behavioral problems.
Eliminate bad habits and learn new skills: heel, sit, place, etc.
Start by understanding if your dog needs Obedience Training (Manners) or if your dog needs help with Behavioral Issues (Mind) or both.
Aggression to humans/dogs
Fear of new people/places
Stop pulling on the leash
Stop barking at other dogs/people
Learn commands like 'heel', 'place', 'sit'
Learn to come back when called

Our Training Method
Dogs HAVE to be taught both YES and NO, but in the right way.
We teach them YES by using positive reinforcement techniques such as food, treats, marker training and playing games to help them understand what we want them to do.
Then we teach them NO by introducing minor corrections in order to set boundaries. This can be done with a wide variety of tools; slip leads, prong collars, vibration collars and e-collars.
All of which we are highly trained on and teach you how to use them safely and effectively, and most importantly, in a way that isn't harsh to your dog.

"Chelsey is a dream! My husband and I had so much anxiety about the interactions between our fun-loving pitbull and our rambunctious toddler.
Chelsey was able to come into our home and bring a sense of calm and order. She understood our situation and was able to help us come up with solutions. She also was able to help us better understand our dog and what his needs are so that we all can be successful. To sum it all up, Chelsey is amazing and an asset in dog training!"
