Why Rewards-Based Training Works
Fido is more likely to repeat a behaviour when they anticipate a pleasant outcome for themselves– whether you like that behaviour or not.
By teaching key habits and behaviours from an early age, you increase the likelihood of raising a well-adjusted and confident Fido who loves going anywhere with you.
Reduces Problematic Behaviours
Dogs enjoy it! You decrease the risk of creating or exacerbating stress while increasing Fido's enthusiasm and joy for learning alongside you.
Rewards-based puppy socialization and playtime helps Fido feel good and build confidence while experiencing new things and practicing interaction skills.
Between Dog & Owner
Fido is more likely to feel safe around you since good things happen in your presence. This decreases the tendency to be afraid of novelty as they get older.
Start Your Personalized Training Plan
Designed for puppies 16 weeks and younger, our puppy courses help to establish healthy behaviours and patterns. By exposing your pup to new scents, sounds, and experiences at a young age, you will find they are more adventurous, confident, and social in new settings.

I am very choosy about my dog's care, and I felt very confident leaving my 2 dogs in Jodi's capable hands for in-home dog-sitting. The dogs were happy and relaxed when we returned, and she kept us posted about their activities and behavior.
