"I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me they are the role model for being alive."
A good dog is a trained dog...
Training your dog will not only benefit your life & theirs, it will also eliminate pesky behavior problems & create a long lasting bond. Dogs are always eager to learn, & through training, your dog will learn how to be an enjoyable member of the family. There are many different training options available depending on your dogs personality & needs. Since treats aren't always available, I initially use them to teach new commands. After the dog shows they know & understand the command, training focuses on your dog responding solely for your praise & affection. I teach commands inside with no distractions, then we add some toys and bones as distractions. Once all the commands are learned inside, we work our way to outside, with lots of distractions!
Aside from basic obedience, I also am able to come out to their home environment to help with any different behavioral problems or to answer any questions!

Bella was not able to move to New York with her owner because they did not allow pitbulls unless they passed their AKC Canine Good Citizen test. After training with Bella & her owner for few months, Bella passed her test & is now living in New York with her mom!

She was 8 years old when I started training her to become a therapy dog. Here she is a few months later, showing off her ribbon & officially a certified therapy dog!
"Chelsy was professional & personable. She quickly established a relationship with Tippy & her obedience training progressed in the same manner. Thanks to Chelsy, Tippy passed her exam for Therapy Dogs International & became an amazing therapy dog." Mary Beth
