Real Dogs - Real People - Real Life
Our approach to training implements clear communication, rules, boundaries, exercise, play and owner education to build a solid relationship between dogs and their people.
Whether you want to get a new puppy off to a great start, have a dog with problem behaviors, want to teach your dog some basic skills, work on something fun like scent work or join our canine fit club, we are here to help.
Training plans are tailored to meet the unique needs of your dog and family. We involve you in every step of the process from beginning to end. You will be provided with homework to go with your lessons and you are welcome to check in with us by text, email, phone, pictures and videos.
Train with us and see the difference we can make not only in your dog's life but also in yours.
Once you've joined the RSS pack, you're always family. When your training program is finished, we are still here for support, whether it's a quick question, follow up lesson or to share your adventures with your dog.
Raising, training, rehabilitating and adventuring with dogs is our lifestyle. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram (Links at the bottom of the page) to see what we are up to with the dogs and families we are working with and the fun, adventures and work we do with our own dogs.
