"Training is not supposed to be a magic trick to the owner.

I am a dog trainer educating the owner to be the trainer.

Creating a balanced relationship with man's best friend." - Tom Puliafico

In our training we address...

On-Leash Skills; Basic obedience commands (Sit, Down, Here, Bed, etc.) and how they can help in everyday life. How to properly walk nicely on the leash and use the leash as a communication tool when your dog may become distracted and not listening to what you are saying.

 

Off-Leash Skills; Remote collar training gives us the ability to create a very reliable “Here” Command.  

 

With remote collar training we can UNLEASH your dog's potential, making off-leash freedom a reality and privilege to our dog. Remote collar training gives us the ability to create a very reliable “Here” Command and in some cases can save a dogs life. 

 

Better Manners; We teach our dogs how to coexist in a more “mannerly” way. Like teaching the dog not to counter-surf, beg, jump, or nip

 

Overall Behavior; If a dog is suffering from anxiety or aggression we take a back door approach by learning to be efficient with the fundamental skills before addressing problematic behaviors setting up the owner and dog for long term success.

 



BOARD AND TRAIN CAMP

With the Board and Train programs, your dog will stay with our family and pack for whatever amount of time is needed to create the most success with your dog. Your dog will live with us as a family pet, and not be put into a stressful facility with dozens of dogs.

 

Your dog will be treated as if he or she is our own, and most know what kind of life our dogs live. Your dogs will receive several training sessions throughout the day with me as well as plenty of structured play time and at multiple off-leash hikes, walks, and different environmental exposure throughout your dogs stay.  

 

Owners will have training material to review during the process so they know the entire teaching process and what their expectations are when the dog comes home.  

 

 

During the program, I will then meet with you, the owner, for multiple sessions, during and after their stay, to show you how to not only maintain what was learned, but to actually continue the process.  

 

Cost is $2,350 with payment plans available 


OFF LEASH UNLIMITED

One-On-One In-Home Training (6-10 Sessions typically to complete) 

 

Once every two weeks we meet for usually 1-2 hours.  Typically at your home and in your neighborhood, where the real world situations are usually arising. We may meet at a park or at an event, if discussed when further into the training. 

 

During these lessons we work on specific techniques that we have chosen that will benefit YOU AND YOUR DOG. I will provide simple tasks and homework, that if practiced and reviewed between lessons will lead you and your dog toward long term success!

 

I always like to tell owners in these lessons, that, we will work with the dog and get them a little bit further.  It is less, me coming to train the dog in an hour and more of…

 

I am here to train THE OWNER to be THEIR DOGS TRAINER.

 

Between lessons there will be assigned Day Training sessions where we will pick up the dog while your busy and proof the work, socialize your dog more with other people and dogs and expose the dog to new environments. During day training we will send home video material to offer further guidance and coaching. 

 

Tools are included. Cost is a flat rate of $1,000


Both Packages include:

  • Step by Step Homework to make sure the owner and dog  are having a successful experience 
  • 3 Days of Day Training, so we can proof the training, practice socialization with other dogs, and address those  issues that may be a bit more difficult in the process. 
  • All tools are included, making it simple and does not leave you without proper tools to work with your dog. (with the exception of long lines, treats, and bark collars)
  • Client only boarding and daycare 
  • Unlimited lifetime support 
  • Follow up lessons, constant phone, text, or email support
  • and the MOST exciting feature to our programs is the access to our Client only Facebook Group (The Lake Erie Dog Pack) which will further the education and coaching, and is a great way to review.
