Training Philosophy

Our ultimate goal is to teach owners and families how they can reinforce their dogs new behaviors using our very effective, rewarding  methods based on the science behind how animals learn.

Every Great Dog offers  family-friendly training where learning takes place in a relaxed  and motivational environment that both you and your dog will enjoy.  Our various dog training programs focus on teaching dogs new behaviors, those we want them to learn.  Each dog is unique and since no single approach works for every dog we utilize a wide variety of tools to achieve positive outcomes. We promote positive reward based methods as for long lasting results while also utilizing behavior interrupting consequences once your dog clearly understands the cues. 

Getting your dog to focus, pay attention to you and exhibit good manners are always addressed during the training sessions because they are so important. Every Great Dog is dedicated to providing the most personal dog training service.
