Our training philosophy at A Lucky Dog begins with the pet owner. Our trainers believe in teaching clients positive reinforcement methods designed to successfully train their dogs for a lifetime of companionship. Our fun and informative sessions keep owners involved in their dog's development and encourages participation throughout the learning process. We find that clients who play an active role in their dogs training programs dramatically improve their dog's behavior and overall skill levels.

We offer several convenient packages designed for the different stages of a dog's life. One of our popular packages is called "The Right Start" and is designed for the new dog owner who wishes to start their puppy on the right track towards good manners and proper housetraining.

In addition to these packages, A Lucky Dog offers training solutions for behavioral problems that require individual evaluation and specially designed sessions to target specific issues. Some behavioral problems may be serious concerns to owners, and require carefully charted behavioral modification plans. Our Behavior Counselors and Trainers offer years of experience and are available for consultations. Click here for contact information.
