Dog Training Philosophy

Having a dog for a lifetime starts with building the relationship between you and your companion. Lifetime Companion Dog Training gets you started by teaching you the dog training skills to build a positive connection with your dog!

Our dog training philosophy is based on setting your dog up for success while using proven, gentle, reward-based training!

We’ll teach you how to train your dog using proven positive methods that are fun, easy and get results.

Our mission is to help you build trust and make everyday life more enjoyable. We train with positive reinforcement and a word that captures the behavior you want to reward (same concept as clicker training).

Once your dog understands that the behavior he’s offering (like sit) earns a reward he’ll be more likely to repeat that behavior. This method is fun, builds confidence, produces an eager learner and opens up communication that produces remarkable results.

You’ll see your relationship with your puppy flourish, frustrations will go down and training will be a fulfilling adventure for the whole family!

We’ve learned over the years that, just like people, each dog has her own personality and method of learning. Because we work one-on-one with you and your dog, we’re able to adjust to your learning style in a place where your dog is most comfortable, his home.

We listen to your concerns or wishes, coach you through the training process and help you find real life solutions that both of you can live with. We’ll help you discover what does or doesn’t motivate your dog and how to transition away from treats to life rewards.

We’re committed to training without the use of fear, pain, intimidation and force.


Keep your dog busy!

We pledge  to respond to your questions with easy to understand answers and safe, practical solutions whether it’s about dog training, behavior, equipment or general care.

We’re here to encourage you every step of the way! Even after the training is over we offer lifetime “technical support” over the phone or via email.
