Get Started! Dog Training Programs in Maryland

Our dog training programs will give you the dog you have always wanted, in less time than you think!

A quick scroll of this page will give you an idea of how easily you can have a problem-free dog, with the certainty that your dog will listen to you, even around distractions. 

We help you design the program that would best suit your goals; whether your dog is simply a puppy who is growing so fast that we need to stay ahead of those cute puppy paws, before they are attached to a jumping, counter-surfing 75 pound adult, or the dog that needs a good foundation to help with leash pulling, running away, not coming when called, counter surfing, obnoxious jumping on you or your guests, excessive barking, and much more.

We are here to help you with your K9 delinquent, when you are tired of extracting your TV remote from the Jaws-of-Death, chasing your pup through the streets of your neighborhood, or saving your guests from the Giant Jumping Bean.

Every dog can be great! Even yours.

Dog Boarding and Training

You want to train your dog, but for whatever reason, you can’t. Business travel, job commitments, a chaotic schedule of soccer games and swim club, or just don’t know where to start. We get that. We are happy to do the “heavy lifting” for you, and get your dog started on a lifetime of trouble-free ownership for you. Your continual maintenance of your dog’s training will reward you with a polished, well-mannered pet that you can proudly show off anywhere.

Our Boarding and Training Programs are immersion-style training programs, offering your dog twenty four hour/seven days a week supervision and care, as a guest in our home instead of a kennel where supervision often ends after 6 pm.

These programs are custom tailored to provide your dog with daily opportunities to learn new behaviors in a positive way, while we work on eliminating habits that pose potential safety risks or just annoy you. We establish a pattern of new behavior that becomes easier to reinforce and maintain by you, once your dog goes home. Availability is very limited as we only take a few dogs at a time to assure they each get the individualized attention that has made us leaders in the industry for the last 30 years.

We are members of an elite group of trainers who can boast dogs that have been sent to us from as far away as Minnesota, Tennessee, Ohio, New York, Florida, Georgia and elsewhere. These programs are the reason why. Click on the link below for program descriptions.

Our immersion style, overnight dog boarding and training options start at $2195.00. We can customize programs depending on owner goals and training issues.

Space is limited, we urge you to contact us for availability.

Private, One-on-One Dog Obedience Training

In our Private training, we can directly address the behavioral issues you are experiencing with your dog and design a training program that addresses your specific needs. Our trainers teach you how to communicate with your dog effectively and consistently, providing you with the essential tools to control your dog in any environment.

This is the program for dog owners who are looking for greater control over their dog’s behavior and choose to be a part of that process. Our Private Training program is for the owner who has the time and the desire to work with their dog to create that undeniable bond that comes though working and learning together. Under our instruction, you will learn how to handle your dog consistently and without conflict. These private lessons can help you transform your relationship with your dog from one of conflict or chaos to relaxation and enjoyment!

Our professional staff will instruct you as you train your dog to walk politely on a leash, sit, down, stay, and to come when called. You will also learn how to identify and eliminate things that may be sabotaging your training, by practicing consistency and timing under the careful eyes of our training instructors.

Our training is designed for you to succeed, by giving you the tools to manage your dogs behavior effectively and without conflict.

Our “Never Miss a Lesson” private training programs are designed for your convenience. We offer weekly lessons for participants, including an on-line coaching option, so owners make progress even if they are working with us remotely! Enjoy the benefit of a personalized experience and private instruction, with the assurance of having support even when you can’t make it to class.

Right Start Puppy Training

Linda is recognized as one of the Nation’s leading pioneers in Puppy Development. She has chaired seminars across the United States on puppies and how to identify the critical periods of development that make the difference between a confident, mentally stable adult dog, and a problem pup with serious behavior issues cropping up throughout his life.

Stop wasting time thinking that young dogs are not capable of learning until “a certain age” and start taking advantage of what scientific research has identified as the most readily accessible period for learning in every young dogs’ life. Take advantage of what science has proven to be a unique opportunity to accelerate learning in very young puppies that they will remember into their adult lives!

We will help your pup discover how to be successful, willing and cooperative from the very first day!

The good news is, you don’t have to wait until your pup is a “certain age” before real training can begin. To be honest, you can actually teach a puppy as early as 8 weeks all of the skills he will ever need as an adult in half the time. Puppies love to learn and we love to train them! 

Our Right Start Puppy Training is for pups under the age of 16 weeks, and addresses the typical problem puppy behaviors like mouthing, chewing and housebreaking issues at a period in your pup’s life where they are more receptive to training than at any other time. We have developed the perfect puppy training program that taps into the basic developmental drives all puppies share during their first few months.

We can teach you how to avoid all of the pitfalls of early puppy-hood through our Right Start program. We stop annoying puppy behaviors like sharp teeth snagging your skin, favorite shoes, best suit or priceless heirlooms while helping you coordinate safe social adventures that insure good developmental health in a positive learning environment. This program is for puppies under the age of 5 months.

Our “Never Miss a Lesson” private training programs are designed for your convenience. We offer weekly lessons for participants, including an on-line coaching option, so owners make progress even if they are working with us remotely! Enjoy the benefit of a personalized experience and private instruction, with the assurance of having support even when you can’t make it to class.
